QFX10002 Line of Ethernet Switches
The QFX10002 fixed-configuration switches are very dense, highly scalable platforms designed for today’s most demanding data center, campus, and routing environments. They’re loaded with power and functionality, all housed in a compact, 2 U form factor.
Using our custom silicon Q5 ASICs, QFX10002 Switches feature a deep buffer with Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) to absorb network traffic spikes and reduce application latency. They support 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE in the same platform, providing the flexibility to transition to greater network capacity as traffic demands increase.
Manage your QFX10002 with the turnkey Juniper Apstra System that automates the entire network lifecycle to simplify design, deployment, and operations and provide closed-loop assurance.

The QFX10000 line of high-performance fixed core and spine switches delivers industry-leading scalability, density, and flexibility, helping cloud and data center operators build automated data center networks that provide superior long-term investment protection. Designed for a diverse set of deployment options, the QFX10000 switches allow data center operators to build cloud networks that best suit their deployment needs and easily evolve as requirements change over time.
Juniper Networks® QFX10002 fixed configuration switches offer 100GbE, 40GbE, and 10GbE options in a 2 U form factor. All switches support quad small form-factor pluggable plus transceiver (QSFP+) and QSFP28 ports for 40GbE and 100GbE speeds, respectively. With support for 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE in a single platform, the QFX10002 switches provide the foundation for today’s data center, delivering long-term investment protection for current and emerging requirements.
Built on custom, Juniper-designed Q5 ASICs, the high-performance, highly versatile QFX10002 switches scale up to 6 Tbps of throughput. These switches offer the industry’s highest 100GbE port density with deep buffers—up to 60 ports in a 2 U fixed form factor. The QFX10002 enables a simple, consolidated network design and allows customers to seamlessly evolve data center networks from existing 10GbE and 40GbE architectures to 100GbE to keep pace with evolving needs.
The QFX10002 switches are members of the QFX10000 line of Ethernet switches, which can be deployed in a number of different designs and fabrics for Layer 2 and Layer 3 networks, including multichassis link aggregation (MC-LAG), Junos Fusion, and EVPN/VXLAN-based configurations on IP fabric underlay. The open architecture ensures customers can build on top of Juniper Networks Junos® operating system to accelerate their pace of innovation. The QFX10000 switches also support Data Center Interconnect (DCI), critical to workload mobility and application availability.
For networks evolving to SDN, the QFX10000 switches can integrate with VMware NSX SDN controllers, giving users options for SDN systems. The QFX10000 performs both Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) L2 and L3 gateway functionality; the open, standards-based platform also interoperates with Open vSwitch Database (OVSDB) to support automated management and control capabilities.
