Product Review

The Juniper EX8200-40XS line card, with its capacity for 40 SFP/SFP+ ports supporting both 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps speeds, offers flexibility for high-density deployments. However, its high power consumption, peaking at 550W, may raise operational costs for energy-conscious environments. Additionally, the card's advanced features, such as support for jumbo frames up to 9216 bytes and a substantial forwarding rate of 119 Mpps, ensure efficient data processing and throughput for demanding network tasks.


The Juniper EX8200-40XS is a high-performance 40-port GbE/10GbE SFP/SFP+ line card designed for the EX8200 series switches. This line card requires SFP/SFP+ modules to operate and supports both 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps port speeds. It is capable of expanding the system's capacity up to 320 ports on the EX8208 and up to 640 ports on the EX8216, enabling scalable solutions for data centers and large enterprise networks. With a forwarding rate of 119 million packets per second (Mpps) and a data rate of 80 Gbps, the EX8200-40XS ensures efficient data transmission across the network. The fabric connection provides 160 Gbps, or 320 Gbps in full duplex mode, facilitating high-speed data exchange and reducing bottlenecks. The card's advanced queuing mechanisms include 6 ingress queues per port group and 8 egress queues per port and per port group, optimizing traffic flow and prioritization. The EX8200-40XS offers substantial buffering capabilities, with 1 MB per port group and 512 MB within the Packet Forwarding Engine (PFE) per port group, to manage sudden bursts in traffic without packet loss. It also supports jumbo frames up to 9216 bytes, enabling the efficient transmission of large data packets. The card can store up to 160,000 MAC addresses, accommodating extensive device connectivity within the network. Power consumption is a critical factor in networking hardware, and the EX8200-40XS is designed with efficiency in mind. It has a maximum power consumption of 550 W and a typical consumption of 427 W, balancing performance with energy efficiency. The card's physical dimensions are 14.40 x 1.59 x 20.51 inches, and it weighs 15.30 lb, making it a compact yet powerful component for any data center rack.
