Product Review

The Juniper CHAS-BP-MX240-S offers a high throughput capacity of 1.92 Tbps and supports a wide range of Ethernet configurations, accommodating up to 80 1GbE, 80 10GbE, 24 40GbE, and 8 100GbE connections, making it versatile for various networking needs. However, with a fully loaded weight of 130 lbs (59 kg) and a 5-RU rack size, its physical footprint and weight may pose challenges for space-constrained environments. Additionally, its typical power draw of 1860 W could be a consideration for operations looking to optimize energy efficiency.


The Juniper CHAS-BP-MX240-S, part of the MX Series 4-Slot MX240 Base Router Chassis, is designed for high-performance networking with a focus on scalability and reliability. This model provides a solid foundation for networks that require high throughput and flexibility in a compact form factor. With its specifications, the MX240 is suitable for a wide range of applications, from enterprise networks to service provider infrastructures. At the core of the MX240's capabilities is its support for up to 1.92 Tbps throughput, ensuring that data flows efficiently through the network without bottlenecks. The chassis includes one Switch Control Board (SCB) and offers four expansion slots, all of which are available for use. This allows for a high degree of customization and scalability, enabling the installation of additional modules to meet the evolving needs of the network. Connectivity options on the MX240 are robust, featuring a single RJ-45 console port and a 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet management port for straightforward configuration and management. The router's design facilitates a high-density setup, supporting up to nine systems per rack. This density is a testament to the MX240's efficient use of space, optimized for 5-rack units (RU) in height. The hardware is capable of accommodating 2 Modular Port Concentrators (MPCs), with each slot supporting up to 480 Gbps, allowing for a wide variety of network configurations. The MX240's flexibility is further highlighted by its support for a diverse range of Ethernet interfaces: - Maximum 1GbE ports: 80 - Maximum 10GbE ports: 80 - Maximum 40GbE ports: 24 - Maximum 100GbE ports: 8 These options ensure that the MX240 can handle the demands of high-speed networking environments, providing ample capacity for both current and future network requirements. The physical dimensions of the MX240 are tailored for easy integration into existing infrastructures, measuring 17.45 inches in width, 8.71 inches in height, and 24.5 inches in depth. The chassis weight varies depending on its configuration, from 52 lbs (23.6 kg) when unloaded to 130 lbs (59 kg) when fully equipped. Power efficiency is a key consideration in the design of the MX240. It operates on 100 to 240 V AC, with a typical power draw of 1860 W. This efficiency does not come at the expense of performance, making the MX240 an ideal choice for environments where operational costs are a concern.
  • Operating temperature range: 32°-104°F (0°- 40°C)
  • Operating humidity range: 5% to 90%
  • Maximum operating altitude: 10,000 ft (3048 m)
These environmental specifications ensure the MX240's reliability and durability in a variety of operating conditions, from standard office environments to more demanding settings. In summary, the Juniper CHAS-BP-MX240-S offers a powerful, scalable solution for high-demand networking environments. Its combination of throughput capacity, expansion options, and efficient design make it a versatile choice for organizations looking to build or expand their network infrastructure.
