Product Review

The Juniper EX9208-CHAS-S offers substantial backplane capacity up to 9.6 Tbps and high port density, supporting up to 288 10GbE ports, 72 40GbE ports, or 24 100GbE ports at wire speed, making it suitable for high-demand environments. However, its significant weight, ranging from 88.4 lbs in its base configuration to 163.6 lbs when fully loaded, along with its 8U rack size, requires considerable space and infrastructure support, which might be a drawback for smaller or densely packed data centers. Additionally, the chassis supports a broad operating temperature and altitude range, ensuring reliable performance across various environmental conditions, but the need for six slots for line cards leaves two slots unavailable, potentially limiting expansion capabilities for some configurations.


The Juniper EX9208-CHAS-S is a modular Ethernet switch designed for high performance and flexibility in enterprise and data center environments. This 8-slot chassis features a passive midplane and supports a backplane capacity of up to 9.6 terabits per second (Tbps), ensuring high-speed data transmission and efficient network operations. One of the standout features of the EX9208-CHAS-S is its impressive maximum fabric bandwidth of 480 gigabits per second (Gbps) per slot. This capability allows for enhanced throughput and improved network efficiency, particularly in demanding applications that require high bandwidth. In terms of port density, the EX9208-CHAS-S excels with its ability to support a variety of Ethernet interfaces. It can accommodate up to 288 10GbE ports at wire speed, with a reduced configuration supporting 240 ports. For 40GbE connectivity, it can handle up to 72 ports at wire speed, with an alternative setup of 60 ports. The switch also supports up to 24 100GbE ports at wire speed, or 20 in a slightly reduced configuration. This flexibility ensures that the switch can meet the needs of diverse network architectures and scale as required. The physical dimensions of the EX9208-CHAS-S are 17.5 inches in width, 14 inches in height, and 27.75 inches in depth, accounting for standard cable management solutions. This 8U chassis weighs 88.4 lbs in its base configuration and can go up to 111.2 lbs in a redundant setup. When fully loaded, the chassis weighs approximately 163.6 lbs. This switch is designed to operate within a wide range of environmental conditions. It can function at temperatures ranging from 32° F to 104° F and can be stored in temperatures from -40° F to 158° F. The operating altitude limit is up to 10,000 feet, and it can operate in relative humidity levels ranging from 5% to 90% non-condensing, with non-operating humidity tolerance between 5% to 95% non-condensing.
  • Total number of slots: 8
  • Slots available for line cards: 6
  • 16 gigabytes DRAM
The chassis is equipped with 16 gigabytes of DRAM, providing sufficient memory for handling complex operations and ensuring smooth performance even under heavy loads. Overall, the Juniper EX9208-CHAS-S offers a powerful and versatile platform for building high-capacity, resilient networks. Its robust backplane capacity, high fabric bandwidth, and flexible port density make it an ideal choice for enterprises and data centers looking to deploy a scalable, high-performance networking solution.
