Juniper Networks Compact EX2200-C Ethernet Switch

Sorry, this product is no longer available, replaced by the EX2300-C-12T.



The Juniper Networks Compact EX2200-C Ethernet Switch offers an economical, entry level, simply connected solution in a compact, fanless form factor for access layer deployments in micro-branches, retail, and workgroup environments.

The EX2200 also supports Juniper Networks Virtual Chassis technology, allowing up to four interconnected switches to be managed as a single logical device, delivering a scalable, pay-as-you-grow solution for expanding networks.

The Juniper Networks® EX2200-C Ethernet Switch with Virtual Chassis technology delivers a compact, silent, and power efficient platform for low-density micro branch deployments and commercial access or enterprise workgroup environments outside the wiring closet.

Featuring 12 10/100/1000BASE-T access ports with and without Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) in a fanless design, the EX2200-C switches deliver a powerful solution for supporting services such as unified communications, IP telephony, closed circuit television (CCTV), and other applications in office, classroom, hospitality, and other space and wiring constrained environments. Two front panel, dual-purpose (10/100/1000BASE-T or 100/1000BASE-X) uplinks provide operational flexibility.

Architecture and Key Components

The fixed configuration EX2200 line of Ethernet switches delivers complete Layer 2 and basic Layer 3 switching capabilities to satisfy the low-density branch and low-density wiring closet connectivity requirements of today’s high-performance businesses. The EX2200-C models extend that reach into workgroup environments that reside outside the wiring closet, including micro branch offices, retail access applications, education, hospitality, and other locations where the switch is deployed in open areas.

Two models are available. The EX2200-C-12T-2G offers 12 front panel 10/100/1000BASE-T ports for connecting to networked devices. The EX2200-C-12P-2G includes support for the IEEE 802.3at PoE+ standard for powering networked devices such as telephones, video cameras, multiple radio IEEE 802.11n wireless LAN (WLAN) access points, and video phones in converged network environments.

The EX2200-C switches also include two front panel, small form-factor pluggable transceiver (SFP) GbE uplink ports, and two RJ-45 copper GbE uplink ports. Up to two of the uplink ports can be used simultaneously, providing the flexibility to connect to higher layer devices such as aggregation switches or routers over unshielded twisted pair (UTP) or fiber optic cabling. The uplink ports can also be configured as Virtual Chassis interfaces and connected via standard GbE optics interfaces; the last two are preconfigured by default as Virtual Chassis ports. A fixed internal power supply ensures operational simplicity.

Virtual Chassis Technology:

The EX2200-C supports Juniper’s unique Virtual Chassis technology, enabling up to four interconnected EX2200-C switches to be managed as a single logical device and delivering a scalable, pay-as-you-grow solution for expanding network environments.

While EX2200-C switches can be interconnected over any of the front-panel uplink ports, the last two ports are configured by default as Virtual Chassis ports, automating deployments when using standard GbE SFP transceivers (sold separately). These two ports can also be configured as GbE uplinks to aggregation devices by disabling the Virtual Chassis technology.

When deployed in a Virtual Chassis configuration, the EX2200-C switches elect a master and a backup switch based on a set of preconfigured policies or criteria. The master switch automatically creates and updates the switching and optional routing tables on all other Virtual Chassis switch members. Switches can be added to or removed from the Virtual Chassis configuration without service disruption.

EX2200-C Virtual Chassis configurations operate as highly resilient unified systems, providing simplified management using a single IP address, single telnet session, single command-line interface (CLI), automatic version checking, and automatic configuration. The EX2200-C switches are also capable of local switching, so packets coming into a port destined for another port on the same switch do not have to traverse the Virtual Chassis, increasing forwarding capacities.

EX2200-C Virtual Chassis configurations implement the same slot/module/port numbering schema as other Juniper Networks chassis-based products, providing true chassis-like operations. By using a consistent operating system and a single configuration file, all switches in a Virtual Chassis configuration are treated as a single device, simplifying overall system maintenance and management.

Features and Benefits:

The EX2200-C model switches include a number of features that make them ideal for low-density, open space deployments.

Compact Form Factor

At 10.6 inches wide and 9.4 inches deep, EX2200-C switches can be easily and discreetly installed on desktops, on or under shelves, or on walls. An optional magnetic mounting pad is available for securing the EX2200-C switches to metal surfaces. Rack mount kits are also available for installing the switches in standard 19 inch wiring racks. Wall mounting can be done using the flexible mounting slots on the bottom of the chassis to fix to the screws on the wall.

Dual-Purpose Uplinks

Two front panel, dual-purpose (10/100/1000BASE-T or 100/1000BASE-X) uplinks provide operational flexibility.

Silent Operation

The air-cooled EX2200-C switches do not require internal fans, resulting in a silent operating mode suitable for deployments in workgroup areas. The fanless design also reduces power consumption and improves mean time between failures (MTBF) by eliminating moving parts that can fail.

Low Power Consumption

The lack of an internal fan reduces the power consumed by the EX2200-C switches. The hardware has Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE)-capable ports (with software support available in a future release), providing low power consumption when network link is idle.

Simplified Operations

When deployed in a Virtual Chassis configuration, the EX2200-C dramatically simplifies network management. Up to four interconnected EX2200-C switches can be managed as a single device utilizing a single Junos OS image file and a single configuration file, reducing the overall number of units to monitor and manage. When the Junos OS is upgraded on the master switch in an EX2200-C Virtual Chassis configuration, the software is automatically upgraded on all other member switches at the same time.

Dedicated front panel RJ-45 and USB console ports offer flexible out-of-band management options, while a front panel USB port can be used to easily upload the Juniper Networks Junos® operating system and configuration files. A series of front panel LEDs offer system status information with a button that allows users to toggle through four different modes for reporting link status, link activity, PoE, and speed. A fixed internal power supply ensures operational simplicity.

Easy Provisioning

Auto-configuration and Auto-Image Install features allow the switches to be configured and imaged over the network using the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) message exchange process. These features eliminate the need to stage devices prior to deployment, dramatically reducing operational expenses. Auto-configuration and Auto Image Install allow new branches and retail stores to rapidly deploy their networks, and also enable software upgrades and security fixes to be performed at the touch of a button. An EZ touchless provisioning feature allows a DHCP server to push configuration details and software images to multiple switches at bootup.

Access Security

The EX2200-C switches fully interoperate with Juniper Networks Unified Access Control, which consolidates all aspects of a user’s identity, device, and location, enabling administrators to enforce access control and security down to the individual port or user levels. Working as an enforcement point within the UAC, the EX2200-C provides standards-based 802.1X port-level access control as well as L2-L4 policy enforcement based on user identity, location, and/or device. If access is granted, the switch assigns the user to a specific VLAN based on authorization levels.

The EX2200-C also provides a full complement of port security features, including DHCP snooping, dynamic ARP inspection (DAI), and media access control (MAC) limiting to defend against internal and external spoofing, man-in-the-middle, and denial-of- service (DoS) attacks.

In addition, the EX2200-C switches are hardware ready (with software support available in a future release) to support IEEE 802.1ae MACSec, providing support for data confidentiality, data integrity, and data origin authentication.

Video and VoIP Ready

The EX2200-C delivers a reliable platform for unifying enterprise communication by providing the highest levels of flexibility and features in its class for the most demanding converged data, voice, and video environments. The EX2200-C switches support plug-and-play deployment with industry-standard Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) and LLDP-Media Endpoint Discovery (LLDP-MED). LLDP-MED-based granular PoE management allows the EX2200-C switches to negotiate PoE usage down to a fraction of a watt on powered devices, enabling more efficient PoE utilization across the switch.

In addition, the EX2200-C supports rich quality-of-service (QoS) functionality for prioritizing data, voice, and video traffic. The switches support eight class-of-service (CoS) queues on every port, enabling them to maintain multilevel, end-to-end traffic prioritizations. The EX2200-C also supports a wide range of policy options, including strict priority, low latency, weighted random early detection (WRED), and shaped deficit weighted round-robin (SDWRR) queuing.

Easy Cable Management

A cable guard that affixes to the front of the switch holds attached cables in place and prevents them from being accidentally unplugged or otherwise removed.

Physical Security

Security slots on either side of the switch accept locking devices that physically secure switches, preventing them from being easily removed in open space or unsecured environments

PoE/PoE+ Power Budget

The EX2200-C-12P-2G switch supports the IEEE 802.3af PoE standard, as well as IEEE 802.3at PoE+. The 802.3af standard delivers up to 15.4 watts of Class 3 PoE per port, while the 802.3at PoE+ delivers up to 30 watts of power per port for supporting networked devices such as telephones, video cameras, IEEE 802.11n WLAN access points, and video phones that require more than 15.4 watts.

With a total PoE system budget of 100 watts, the 12-port EX2200- C-12P-2G can provide the full 15.4 watts of Class 3 PoE to a maximum of six ports simultaneously, and the full 30 watts of PoE+ to a maximum of three ports simultaneously. Attached devices draw the necessary power until the PoE power budget is exhausted.

Junos Operating System

The EX2200-C switches run the same Junos OS that is used by other Juniper Networks EX Series Ethernet Switches, as well as Juniper routers and Juniper Networks SRX Series Services Gateways. By using a common operating system, Juniper delivers a consistent implementation and operation of control plane features across all products.

Enhanced Limited Lifetime Warranty

The EX2200-C switches include an enhanced limited lifetime hardware warranty that provides next business day advance hardware replacement for as long as the original purchaser owns the product. The warranty includes lifetime software updates, advanced shipping of spares within one business day, and 24x7 Juniper Networks Technical Assistance Center (JTAC) support for 90 days after the purchase date. Power supplies and fan trays are covered for a period of five years.
