Juniper Networks PTX3000

Converged Supercore router for space- and power- constrained environments.

The PTX3000 is a dense, ultra-compact 8 Tbps core router that is highly optimized to meet the service provider challenges of space and power. We designed this router to support IP/MPLS applications, including Internet backbone, peering, label-switched routing, metro packet optical, regional cores, space-constrained central offices (COs), and colocation facilities.

An eight-slot router occupying 22 rack units, the PTX3000 supports up to eight FPCs, each providing one PIC. It delivers the best of IP and optical worlds, offering the flexibility of a full-featured IP network with the reliability, performance, and scale of optical transport in a single collapsed router.

Featuring 300 mm ETSI-compliant depth, 8 Tbps of forwarding capacity, and less than half a watt per Gbps power consumption, the PTX3000 achieves new limits of efficiency. Compared to similar products, the PTX3000 outperforms the competition by two to six times on efficiency metrics of power, cooling, and space. At the same time, it delivers very dense, fully integrated photonics and coherent dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) 100GbE transport. Fault, configuration, accounting, performance, and security management (FCAPS) support for PTX3000 DWDM interfaces is provided by proNX Service Manager.

With the PTX3000, service providers gain enormous scalability and reduced cost in an ultra-compact form factor.
