Product Review

The Juniper CHAS-BP-MX480, with its 8 expansion slots and compatibility with both 110 V AC and 220 V AC power sources, offers flexibility in power management and scalability in network infrastructure. Its rack-mountable form at 8U height supports up to six systems per rack, optimizing space in data centers. However, the unit's substantial weight of approximately 180 lbs when loaded may require careful consideration for rack space and installation.


The Juniper CHAS-BP-MX480 is a high-capacity, rack-mountable networking chassis designed for high-performance service providers and enterprise applications. With an 8U form factor, it offers a blend of scalability and density that is well-suited for environments where space and power efficiency are critical. This product is engineered to support a wide range of networking demands, featuring eight total expansion slots and a switch control board expansion slot type, allowing for significant versatility in network design and expansion. Powering the CHAS-BP-MX480 is straightforward with dual input voltage support at 110 V AC and 220 V AC, ensuring compatibility with diverse power supply systems worldwide. The power source is a dedicated power supply unit, designed to ensure reliable operation under various electrical conditions. At an approximate weight of 180 pounds, the chassis is built for stability and durability in rack-mounted configurations. The system's capacity is notable, with each slot capable of handling up to 480 Gbps, leading to a system throughput of 5.76 Tbps. This immense capacity is distributed across six modular port concentrators (MPCs), which are the heart of the system's networking capabilities. The CHAS-BP-MX480 supports a vast array of Ethernet interfaces, including: - Up to 240 1GbE ports - Up to 240 10GbE ports - Up to 72 40GbE ports - Up to 24 100GbE ports Additionally, the system offers 48 10GbE DWDM interfaces, providing dense wavelength-division multiplexing capabilities essential for high-capacity, long-distance optical communication networks. In terms of environmental specifications, the Juniper CHAS-BP-MX480 operates efficiently within a temperature range of 32° to 104°F (0° to 40°C) and can function at altitudes up to 10,000 feet (3048 meters). The operating humidity range is 5% to 90%, accommodating a wide variety of climatic conditions. Despite its loaded capabilities, the chassis maintains a relatively light weight of 65.5 lbs (29.7 kg) when unloaded, facilitating easier installation and maintenance. The design and technical specifications of the CHAS-BP-MX480 make it a suitable choice for enterprises and service providers looking for a scalable, high-throughput networking solution. Its compatibility with up to six systems per rack underscores its efficiency and density, making it an ideal choice for data centers with limited space. Key features include:
  • Support for up to 5.76 Tbps system throughput.
  • Dual input voltage (110 V AC and 220 V AC) for global compatibility.
  • Environmental resilience with operational capability at up to 10,000 feet altitude.
Overall, the Juniper CHAS-BP-MX480 stands out as a powerful, scalable solution for modern network infrastructures, offering comprehensive features and specifications that meet the demands of today's data-driven world.
