The EX4550 Ethernet switch offers 32 wire-speed GbE or 10 GbE pluggable ports in a compact one rack unit base platform. The expansion modules increase the EX4550’s density to 48 wire-speed GbE or 10 GbE ports, delivering 480 Gbps of layer 2 and layer 3 connectivity.
The EX4550 switches offer an economical, power-efficient and compact solution for aggregating 10 GbE uplinks from access devices in core data center and building deployments. The switches easily meet enterprise core switch requirements by delivering wire-speed performance on every port, full device redundancy and dual-speed GbE and 10 GbE interfaces. The EX4550 switche includes support for Layer 3 dynamic routing protocols such as RIP and OSPF, MPLS services such as layer 2 and layer 3 VPNs, and a comprehensive quality-of-service (QoS) feature set.
Both switches also support Juniper’s unique Virtual Chassis technology, dramatically reducing complexity and introducing a new level of flexibility for data center top-rack or end-row server aggregation
