Optics and Cabling Options for Juniper EX2200 Switches
The soaring bandwidth requirements lift demand for ultra fast transmission speed, especially for high-performance business. Juniper EX2200 switches present an ideal option for access-layer deployments in branch offices and campus networks, delivering performance usually associated with more expensive products. EX2200 switches are low power, low acoustic 1U devices designed for wiring closet, making them an economical solution for low density access business needs. This article offers cabling and connectivity solution for Juniper EX2200 switches.
Juniper EX2200 Switches Overview
High-performance businesses demand high-performance networking solutions. Juniper Networks EX2200 Ethernet switches offer an economical, entry-level, stand-alone solution for access-layer deployments in branch and remote offices, as well as campus networks. 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.
Features and Highlights of Juniper EX2200 Switches
Featuring complete layer 2 and basic layer 3 switching capabilities, Juniper EX2200 switches satisfy the branch and low-density wiring closet connectivity requirements of today’s high-performance businesses. Four platform configurations are available offering 24 and 48 10/100/1000BASE-T ports with or without Power over Ethernet (PoE). Juniper EX2200 generally offers a compact, high-performance solution for supporting today’s converged network access deployments. The following are the main features of EX2200 switches:
Four front panel small form-factor pluggable transceiver (SFP) GbE uplink ports provide high-speed connectivity to aggregation layer switches or other upstream devices.
Uplink ports can be configured as Vitual Chassis interfaces and connected via standard GbE optics interfaces. The last two uplinks are preconfigured by default as Vitual Chassis ports.
Low power consumption, low acoustic fans, and a small 10-inch wide footprint enable flexible, environmentally friendly deployment.
Integrates with Juniper Networks Unified Access Control to provide per-user access control and policing.
Built-in web interface.
Juniper EX2200 Switches Architecture
The EX2200 occupies a single rack unit, delivering a compact solution for crowded wiring closets and access locations where space and power are at a premium. The EX2200 switch’s 10-inch depth and low acoustics also make it ideal for open office deployments. Each EX2200 switch supports four fixed front panel GbE uplink ports with pluggable optics (purchased separately) for high-speed backbone or link aggregation connections between wiring closets and upstream aggregation switches.
