QFX10008 and QFX10016 Modular Ethernet Switches

High-density, modular, data center spine and core switches, powered by custom silicon.

The QFX10000 switches offer a highly scalable network foundation for supporting today’s most demanding data center and multicloud environments. Using our custom silicon Q5 ASICs, the high-performance, versatile QFX10000 switches scale from 3 to 96 Tbps of throughput, providing the capacity you need for long-term investment protection.

Designed to serve as the foundation for a variety of data center fabrics, the QFX10008 and QFX10016 help you lower TCO, simplify network deployments, and reduce management overhead. The switches offer architectural flexibility, so you’ll never be locked into a proprietary solution. It enables the QFX10000 switches to operate in diverse network environments, including EVPN-VXLAN, Layer 3 spine-and-leaf Clos network fabrics, Layer 2 and Layer 3 networks with multichassis link aggregation group (MC-LAG), and Junos Fusion.

To meet your business demands, both software and hardware must work together as parts of a unified network. The QFX10000 switches provide the foundation of the underlying data center infrastructure for Contrail Networking. This platform 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.

The QFX10000 Ethernet switches come in two models:

  • QFX10008: 13 U chassis that supports up to 8 line cards.
  • QFX10016: 21 U chassis that supports up to 16 line cards

Both QFX10000 modular chassis can accommodate any combination of the following QFX10000 Ethernet line cards:

  • QFX10000-30C-M: 30x100GbE/40GbE MACsec-enabled line card.
  • QFX10000-30C: 30x100GbE/40GbE port line card.
  • QFX10000-36Q: 36x40GbE or 12x100GbE port line card.
  • QFX10000-60S-6Q: 60x1GbE/10GbE port line card with 6 port 40GbE/2 port 100GbE.
  • QFX10000-12C-DWDM: 6x200Gbps per line card; 1.2 Tbps per line card.
