The scalable EX4500 line of Ethernet Switches offers economical, power-efficient, high-performance platforms for enterprise campus and data center top-of-rack deployments, as well as for service provider environments.
The 2 U EX4500 has 40 wire-speed dual GbE/10GbE ports with full Layer 2 and Layer 3 support. Optional high-speed uplink modules include eight additional 10GbE ports. The 1 U EX4550 has 32 wire-speed GbE/10GbE ports with two expansion slots for optional modules that increase port densities to 48. The EX4550 supports Layer 3 dynamic routing protocols, such as RIP and OSPF, MPLS services, such as Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPNs, MACsec on all ports, and a comprehensive quality-of-service (QoS) feature set.
Both the EX4500 and EX4550 support Juniper’s Virtual Chassis technology and can be deployed with EX4200 Switches in the same Virtual Chassis configuration to support environments where both GbE and 10GbE servers are present.
