Juniper PTX5000 Packet Transport Router

The PTX5000 Packet Transport Router provides high-density 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE interfaces for large networks and network applications, addressing the needs of Internet service providers and high-volume content providers.

Occupying 36 rack units, the PTX5000 can be configured with up to eight FPCs, each capable of connecting two PICs that support a variety of network media types. The PTX Series architecture cleanly separates control operations from packet-forwarding operations, eliminating processing and traffic bottlenecks while enabling the Converged Supercore router to deliver extreme performance for both IP and MPLS.

The PTX5000 offers integrated 100GbE coherent dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) interfaces with optical transport network (OTN) framing at industry-leading densities. These advanced capabilities lay the foundation for multilayer convergence in the Converged Supercore architecture. The PTX5000 also delivers a full IP feature set, along with high-capacity express MPLS switching and multilayer packet transport manageability.
