Juniper Networks’ Unite design is vital adult to a name, bringing some-more craving network rigging into a complement for simplified government and scaling.
The latest additions to a lineup are entry-level and midrange entrance switches that also embody other facilities for palliate of use.
Unite, introduced final year for a EX9200 core switches and other Juniper and third-party components, is designed to assistance enterprises spin their possess infrastructure into private clouds and couple those to open clouds in a hybrid architecture. It’s built around Junos Fusion Enterprise software, that collapses mixed network layers into one for easier management. That gives administrators a singular indicate of management.
The program uses a IEEE 802.1BR Bridge Port Extension standard, that extends a overpass and a government over a earthy enclosing to emanate a single-tier architecture. When it announced Unite, Juniper pronounced existent EX switches not some-more than 3 years aged could be partial of a architecture.
On Thursday, Juniper introduced dual entry-level entrance switches built to work with Unite: a 24-port EX2300 and a 12-port EX2300-C, a silent, compress chronicle with no fan that’s designed for open or still environments. Both have Gigabit Ethernet ports for joining to customer devices, with 10-Gigabit Ethernet uplinks to a rest of a network.
For midrange enterprises, it launched a EX3400, with 24 or 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports and both 10-Gigabit and 40-Gigabit uplinks. The EX3400 has surplus energy reserve and fans for hardware resiliency. Its 1Gbps and 10Gbps ports have hardware encryption.
All a new switches can be deployed as endpoints in a Junos Fusion Enterprise fabric. They also come with zero-touch provisioning for easy setup.
The new models all have bound configurations though can be logically total into Virtual Chassis configurations and managed as one. As many as 4 EX2300 or EX2300-C switches can be combined, and a EX3400s can be related into a Virtual Chassis of 10 switches.
The EX2300 will start during $1,600 and a EX3400 during $3,300. Both will start shipping in July.
