Product Review

The Juniper EX8200-48T-ES line card offers a high port density with 48 RJ-45 ports supporting 10/100/1000 Mbps speeds, suitable for demanding enterprise networks. However, its power consumption, peaking at 350W, could be a drawback for energy-conscious deployments. Its performance is bolstered by a substantial forwarding rate of 71 Mpps and a robust fabric connection of 160 Gbps full duplex, ensuring efficient data handling and connectivity for high-volume network traffic.


The Juniper EX8200-48T-ES is a high-performance line card designed to provide exceptional scalability and efficiency in handling network traffic. This device is equipped with 48 RJ-45 ports, supporting 10/100/1000BASE-T connections. It's tailored for enterprises that require reliable high-speed connections across their network infrastructure. The port density allows for a substantial increase in network capacity, supporting up to 384 ports in the EX8208 configuration and up to 768 ports in the EX8216 setup. This scalability ensures that the network can grow in line with organizational needs without the immediate requirement for additional hardware investments. A key performance metric of the EX8200-48T-ES is its forwarding rate of 71 Mpps (million packets per second), coupled with a data rate of 48 Gbps (gigabits per second). This high throughput capability ensures that data flows efficiently through the network, minimizing bottlenecks and enhancing the overall user experience. Moreover, the line card features an 80 Gbps fabric connection, which can reach up to 160 Gbps in full duplex mode, ensuring high-speed data transfer within the network. Each of the 48 ports on the EX8200-48T-ES supports eight queues, allowing for sophisticated traffic prioritization and management. This is essential for networks that handle varied types of data packets, ensuring that critical information is transmitted swiftly and reliably. Furthermore, the card has a substantial total buffer size of 42 MB per port, which helps in managing sudden surges in data traffic, preventing packet loss. The device also supports jumbo frames up to 9216 bytes and can store up to 160,000 MAC addresses, enhancing its capability to handle large-scale operations efficiently. Despite its high performance, the EX8200-48T-ES is designed with energy efficiency in mind, with a maximum power consumption of 350 W and a typical consumption of 194 W.
  • Dimensions are set at 14.40 x 1.59 x 20.51 inches (36.58 x 4.04 x 52.09 cm), making it a compact addition to any networking setup.
  • It weighs 11.26 lb (5.11 kg), ensuring it is both sturdy and relatively easy to handle during installation.
  • The card operates effectively between 32°F and 104°F, with a storage temperature range from -40°F to 158°F, accommodating a wide range of environmental conditions.
The Juniper EX8200-48T-ES also operates up to 10,000 ft in altitude while in use and can be stored at altitudes up to 16,000 ft. Its operational relative humidity range is between 5% and 90% (non-condensing), and when not in operation, it can withstand humidity levels from 0% to 95% (non-condensing). This broad range of operational parameters ensures that the card remains reliable across various physical environments, making it a versatile choice for different organizational needs.
