Juniper Networks QFX5200 Ethernet Switches

High-density 25GbE and 100GbE fixed switches for leaf- and lean-spine deployments.

The QFX5200 switches provide a line-rate, low-latency platform for building large spine and leaf, IP-fabric data center networks. This switch offers flexible 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, 50GbE, and 100GbE interfaces for server and intrafabric connectivity. You can take advantage of its deployment versatility to future-proof your network investment.

To meet today’s business demands, both software and hardware must work together as part of a unified network. The QFX5200 switches provide the foundation of the underlying data center infrastructure for Contrail Networking, a platform that enables automated policies and life-cycle management of data center fabrics. Contrail Networking abstracts the network connectivity using virtual overlays across legacy and cloud-native workloads running servers attached to QFX Series switches.


Choose from three QFX5200 models:

  • QFX5200-48Y: This 1 U 48x25GbE switch has 6x100GbE uplink ports for connecting to the spine, making it an ideal choice for 25GbE access or leaf deployments with a 100GbE spine. Additionally, it’s backward compatible, as 25GbE access ports can be configured to 10GbE, and the 100GbE uplink ports can be configured to 40GbE.
  • QFX5200-32C: This 1 U 32x100GbE switch has 3.2 Tbps of throughput. Ideally suited for leaf deployments in IP fabric networks, it offers line-rate, high-density quad small form-factor pluggable (QSFP+) and QSFP28 ports. The switch supports 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, 50GbE, and 100GbE connections.
  • QFX5210-64C: With this 2 U 64x100GbE high-density switch, you can eliminate tiers, reducing cost and management complexity. It’s well-suited for lean-spine deployments.
  • QFX5220: The 32x400GbE switch in a compact 1-RU form factor, offering flexible 50GbE, 100GbE and 400GbE interfaces for server and inter-fabric connectivity. It provides deployment versatility and network investment for the 400GbE cloud transition. The QFX5220 is expected to be available in the first half of 2019.
