Product Description

Increasingly sophisticated technology users are seeking highly responsive and customizable cloud-like online experiences and services that align with their unique needs and interests, creating more traffic that consumes increasing amounts of network bandwidth.

Unfortunately, traditional hardware-centric edge routers lack the programmability and scale required to allow network operators to profitably meet these market demands, limiting their competitiveness, constraining their revenue and market share growth, and increasing their CapEx, OpEx, and TCO. To overcome these challenges, service providers and cloud operators need software-centric edge solutions that address current demand while offering investment-protecting evolution to emerging technologies such as mobility, Internet of Things (IoT), and the continued growth of cloud networking.

The Juniper Networks MX10000 line of Universal Routing Platforms-including the 13 U, 19.2 Tbps-capable MX10008 and the 21 U, 38.4 Tbps-capable MX10016-offers dense 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE modular solutions that support up to 2.4 Tbps per slot. This enables service providers and cloud operators to confidently build the best networks across data centers, business edge, and cloud markets. The MX10000 line shares common chassis components with equivalent Juniper Networks PTX Series Packet Transport Routers and QFX Series Switches; using specific software and line cards, the universal chassis can be successfully deployed as a core router, IP edge router, or switch, reducing the burden on network operators to qualify multiple platforms.

The MX10000 line of modular platforms is powered by the same programmable Juniper Trio chipset and the same Juniper Networks Junos® operating system that powers the rest of the Juniper Networks MX Series Universal Routing Platform portfolio, leveraging nearly two decades of Juniper R&D investments and innovations that have transformed the economics of networking. Leveraging common Packet Forwarding Engine (PFE) and software ensures complete feature consistency and a common operational and management framework. This consistency reduces the cost, risk, and complexity of network evolution, helping current MX Series customers rapidly qualify and deploy the MX10000 line of modular platforms.

Architecture and Key Components:

The MX10000 line of modular routers features a number of architectural elements. Dual redundant Routing Engines (REs) run Junos OS, where they manage all routing protocol processes, router interface control, and control plane functions such as chassis components, system management, and user access to the router. These processes run on top of a kernel that interacts with the PFE on the line cards via dedicated high-bandwidth management channels, providing a clean separation of the control and forwarding planes.

The MX10000 modular line cards currently support 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE interfaces, and are designed to support 400GbE interfaces in the future. The line cards are oriented horizontally in the front of the chassis, connecting directly to the vertical switch fabric cards in the rear of the chassis via orthogonal interconnects without requiring a midplane. This provides unparalleled investment protection by ensuring a smooth upgrade path to higher speed switch fabric cards as they become available. The midplane-less design also improves airflow with a front-to-back design.

To maintain uninterrupted operation, modular fan trays cool the line cards and REs with redundant, variable-speed fans. In addition, all MX10000 modular components are hot-swappable, and all central functions are available in redundant configurations, providing high operational availability by allowing continuous system operation during maintenance or repairs. The chassis’ universal design also allows them to be used independently for core, edge, or switching configurations.

Line Modular Hardware Components

Line Cards

The line cards for the MX10000 line of modular platforms are based on highly scalable, custom Juniper Trio silicon, making it the industry’s leading router for data center edge, core, peering, and aggregation applications. Each slot on the MX10008 and MX10016 supports 2.4 Tbps (4.8 Tbps half-duplex), while the line cards support multi-rate 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE interfaces.

The modular design of the MX10008 and MX10016 routers provides investment protection by allowing future upgrades. The PFEs offer 400 Gbps of WAN and fabric bandwidth. To achieve 2.4 Tbps forwarding performance, a total of six PFEs are implemented on each interface card. The PFEs provide ingress queuing with loopback stream optimization to avoid reading and writing packet tails when packets are sent to and received back from a loopback stream. The line cards also provide Operation, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) support with per-port Ethernet OAM counters, as well as packet memory, which uses Hybrid Memory Cube DRAM technology to reduce power usage, increase speed, and improve system density.


The MX10008 and MX10016 RE features a 10-core 2.2 GHz Intel processor with 64 GB memory and 2x200 GB solid-state drive (SSD) storage.


The MX10008 contains six power supply slots while the MX10016 contains ten power supply slots to provide complete flexibility for provisioning and redundancy. Each power supply has its own internal fan for cooling. The MX10000 modular line supports both AC and DC power supplies; however, AC and DC supplies cannot be mixed in the same chassis.

The first generation of AC power supplies on the MX10008 and MX10016 accept 200 to 240 volts alternating current (VAC) input, delivering 2700 watts of power to the chassis. The DC power supplies accept -40 to -72 volts direct current (VDC) input, delivering 2500 watts of power to the chassis. Each AC and DC power supply has two inputs for feed redundancy.

The second generation of AC/DC power supplies on the MX10008 and MX10016 delivers up to 5500 W per unit to the chassis, enabling dense 400GbE with optional lower-power settings.


The MX10000 line of modular chassis supports front-to-back cooling with air drawn in through perforations on the REs and the line cards in the front of the platform, while hot air exits through the rear of the chassis. The modular fan trays are accessible from the rear of the chassis.

Chassis Management

The MX10000 modular line delivers powerful Junos OS chassis management that allows environmental monitoring and field-replaceable unit (FRU) control. Chassis management provides a faster primary switchover, enhanced power budgeting with modular power management, reduced power consumption for partially populated systems, granular control over FRU power-on, single zone cooling with better fan speed control for reduced noise, and CPU leveling during monitoring intervals.

Simplified Management

The MX10000 modular line simplifies management based on the elegance and simplicity of Junos OS. Management applications can receive streaming telemetry data to provide robust protocol analytics for an SDN environment. Junos OS also supports OpenConfig, which today is a YANG-based data model that supports a variety of operator use cases.
