Product Review

The Juniper QFX10000-60S-6Q line card offers a high port density, supporting up to 60 1GbE/10GbE ports and a combination of 6 40GbE QSFP+ or 2 100GbE QSFP28 ports, catering to diverse network demands. However, its power consumption is relatively high, with a typical requirement of 365W and a reserved power of 455W, potentially increasing operational costs. Additionally, its substantial buffer size of 8GB and support for jumbo frames up to 9,216 bytes enhance data transmission efficiency, making it suitable for environments requiring high throughput and low latency.


The Juniper QFX10000-60S-6Q is a highly versatile line card designed to meet the demands of modern data centers and high-performance computing environments. This line card offers a mix of 1GbE/10GbE and 40GbE/100GbE port densities, making it suitable for a wide range of networking tasks. With its 60-port configuration for 1GbE/10GbE SFP/SFP+ and additional support for six 40GbE QSFP+ or two 100GbE QSFP28 ports, it provides flexibility for network design and expansion. The hardware dimensions are precisely 17.2 inches in width, 1.89 inches in height, and 20.54 inches in depth, with a weight of 21.4 pounds (9.7 kg). This compact size and weight make it easy to handle and install in standard networking racks without requiring excessive space. Key hardware specifications include a maximum 10GbE port density of 84, allowing for significant network expansion and connectivity. For higher bandwidth requirements, it supports up to six 40GbE ports or two 100GbE ports, offering ample capacity for data-intensive applications. The line card comes with an 8GB buffer to ensure smooth data processing and minimize packet loss during peak loads. Power efficiency is a critical consideration in network design, and the Juniper QFX10000-60S-6Q addresses this with a typical power consumption of 365W and a reserved power of 455W. This balance between performance and power usage helps reduce operating costs.
  • Jumbo frames support up to 9,216 Bytes, enhancing data transmission efficiency for large data packets.
  • Each port features eight output queues, allowing for sophisticated traffic management and prioritization.
