Product Review

The Juniper MX960-PREMIUM2-DC offers high system throughput up to 10.56 Tbps across 11 MPCs, supporting diverse configurations with up to 440 1GbE, 440 10GbE, 132 40GbE, and 44 100GbE interfaces, including DWDM options, catering to large-scale deployments. However, its considerable size, requiring 16 rack units and weighing up to 334 lbs when fully loaded, limits the number of systems per rack to three, potentially posing challenges for space-constrained environments. The product benefits from dual routing engines and switch control board engines (SCBEs) for redundancy, but its significant power draw of 6670 W and side-to-side air flow requirement demand careful consideration of cooling and power infrastructure in the data center.
