The Juniper MX-Series is a group of ethernet routers and switches designed and manufactured by Juniper Networks. It is the technology, which provides the new Juniper Penta Silicon packet forwarding engine along with 5G mobile focused software. It is offered in the form of new line cards for the MX960, MX480 and MX240 routers as well as the equally new MX10008 and MX10016 Universal Chassis.
In 2006, Juniper offered the first of the MX-series, the MX960, MX240, and MX480. The second generation routers, called MX “3D”, were first offered in 2009 and featured a new Trio chipset and IPv6 support. In 2013, the MX routers were enhanced to rise their bandwidth, and a virtualized MX 3D router, the vMX 3D, was offered in 2014. Utilizing the Juniper Extension Toolkit (JET), third party software can be unified into the routers.
In March 2013, Juniper offered the EX9200 switch, which isn’t part of the MX Series, but practices the same software and Trio chipset. A virtualized MX series 3D router, the vMX 3D, was presented in November 2014. A suite of updates were publicized in late 2015. New MPC line cards were presented, which have a throughput of up to 1.6 Tbit/s.
