Product Review

The Juniper CHAS-BP-MX480-S offers a high system throughput of 5.76 Tbps and flexible port configurations, supporting up to 240x 1GbE/10GbE, 72x 40GbE, or 24x 100GbE interfaces, catering to diverse networking demands. However, the chassis comes without SCB and DPC/MPC cards, necessitating additional purchases for full operational capability, which could increase the overall investment. Additionally, its 8U rackmount size and weight of 180 lbs (approximate) when loaded may limit deployment options in space-constrained environments or require more robust rack systems.


The Juniper CHAS-BP-MX480-S is a high-capacity, rackmountable chassis designed for advanced networking requirements, offering a blend of performance, density, and operational simplicity. This chassis supports the MX480 router platform, providing the foundational hardware necessary for delivering high-speed, reliable network services. It is engineered to support a wide array of network applications, from data centers to enterprise WANs, with a focus on scalability, longevity, and high throughput. At the heart of its design, the CHAS-BP-MX480-S accommodates up to six Modular Port Concentrators (MPCs), with each slot capable of handling 480 Gbps, culminating in a system throughput of up to 5.76 Tbps. This capability ensures that it can manage the demands of heavy network traffic with ease, making it an ideal solution for environments where data throughput and reliability are critical. The chassis is equipped with four PWR-MX480-2520-AC power supplies, ensuring redundant, highly reliable power delivery for uninterrupted operation. The inclusion of a single FFANTRAY-MX480-S fan tray ensures that the system remains cool, even under heavy load, contributing to its operational stability and longevity. Despite its powerful capabilities, the CHAS-BP-MX480-S maintains a compact form factor at 8U high, making it highly space-efficient in data center environments. It can accommodate up to six systems per rack, maximizing space utilization and enabling scalable network expansions. The chassis dimensions are 14.0" in height, 17.5" in width, and 23.8" in depth, with an approximate weight of 180.00 lbs when fully loaded, and 65.5 lbs when unloaded. Connectivity options on the Juniper CHAS-BP-MX480-S are extensive, supporting a maximum of 240 1GbE or 10GbE ports, 72 40GbE ports, and 24 100GbE ports. This range of connectivity allows for flexible network configurations and the ability to adapt to varying bandwidth requirements. Additionally, it supports up to 48 10GbE DWDM interfaces, further extending its capabilities in high-capacity optical networks. The chassis operates efficiently across a range of environmental conditions, from 32° to 104°F (0° to 40°C) and can function up to an altitude of 10,000 ft (3048 m). Its operating humidity range is 5% to 90%, ensuring reliability across different climatic conditions. Key specifications include: -
  • System throughput: 5.76 Tbps
  • Maximum 100GbE ports: 24
  • Operating altitude: Up to 10,000 ft (3048 m)
The Juniper CHAS-BP-MX480-S stands out for its exceptional performance, scalability, and reliability. Designed to meet the needs of the most demanding network environments, it provides a solid foundation for building high-capacity, resilient network infrastructures capable of supporting the future growth and the evolving needs of modern businesses.
