Product Review

The Juniper MX960-PREMIUM2-DC-ECM offers high system throughput of 10.56 Tbps and flexible connectivity options, supporting up to 440 1GbE, 440 10GbE, 132 40GbE, and 44 100GbE interfaces, making it suitable for high-density networking environments. However, its significant power draw of 6670 W and side-to-side airflow requirement demand careful consideration in data center power and cooling planning. Additionally, the chassis occupies 16 rack units and supports only three systems per rack, which may limit deployment options in space-constrained environments.


The Juniper MX960-PREMIUM2-DC-ECM is a high-capacity, DC-powered networking platform designed for high-performance applications. This 14-slot chassis includes a midplane and supports redundant configurations for its routing engines, switch control board with enhanced cable management (SCBEs), and power supplies, ensuring high availability and reliability for critical network infrastructure. This platform occupies 16 rack units and can fit up to three systems per rack. It provides 11 modular port concentrator (MPC) slots, with each slot capable of delivering up to 480 Gbps of bandwidth. This scalability allows the MX960-PREMIUM2-DC-ECM to achieve a system throughput of 10.56 terabits per second (Tbps), supporting a wide range of interface types and speeds. - Maximum 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) interfaces: 440 - Maximum 10 GbE interfaces: 440 - Maximum 40 GbE interfaces: 132 Furthermore, the device supports up to 44 100GbE interfaces, including 22 100GbE and 88 10GbE Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) interfaces, enhancing its capability for high-density, high-speed optical transport. The system's total capacity matches its throughput at 10.56 Tbps, making it suitable for demanding data center and service provider environments. Dimensions of the MX960-PREMIUM2-DC-ECM are 17.37 inches in width, 27.75 inches in height, and 23 inches in depth, with a fully loaded weight of 334 pounds and an unloaded weight of 150 pounds. Its default memory configuration includes 2x16 MB NOR flash storage and 64 GB of DDR4 RAM, supplemented with 2x50 GB solid-state drives (SSDs) for storage. Key components that come with the platform include power supplies, redundant routing engines (REs), and fans. The MX960-PREMIUM2-DC-ECM operates on a DC power input ranging from -40 to -72 V DC, with a typical power draw of 6670 watts. It features side-to-side airflow for cooling, ensuring optimal performance within an operating temperature range of 32° to 104°F and an operating humidity range of 5% to 90%. The device is designed to operate at altitudes up to 10,000 feet. In summary, the Juniper MX960-PREMIUM2-DC-ECM stands out for its: - High system throughput and capacity of 10.56 Tbps, supporting a wide range of interface speeds. - Scalable design with 11 MPC slots, accommodating up to 440 1GbE or 10GbE interfaces, 132 40GbE interfaces, and 44 100GbE interfaces. - Reliable and redundant architecture with dual routing engines, power supplies, and enhanced cable management, housed in a compact 16 RU form factor. This platform is engineered to meet the requirements of the most bandwidth-intensive applications, delivering exceptional performance and reliability for service providers and large enterprise networks.
