Juniper Open Networking, Cloud-Optimized Switch



The OCX1100 open networking switch is designed for large cloud builders looking to capitalize on innovations derived from real-world massive scale data center customer environments and backed by the industry-recognized Open Compute Project (OCP) Foundation.

The OCX1100 combines the power of Juniper’s hardened, carrier-class Junos operating system software with cloud-optimized, open source switching hardware built on commercially sourced components. Featuring an OCP-submitted design, the OCX1100 ensures customers are running a consistent and open hardware platform.

By offering a single-source solution, the OCX1100 offers customers the economies of an open hardware design while providing a level of support and reliability not typically available with other white box solutions.

  • Cloud-optimized solution delivers a cost effective, open-source switching solution for large-scale cloud deployments where cost is more important than advanced feature sets.
  • Open architecture based on Open Computing Platform (OCP) design specifications, allowing customers to leverage the open source hardware design community.
  • Superior reliability from a combination of carrier-class Junos operating system with an open-source hardware architecture that’s also a cost-effective switching solution.
  • Single-source solution of the OCX1100 virtually eliminates integration and support risk for customers.
  • Consistent operating environment of Junos on the cloud-optimized OCX1100 switch lowers the learning curve for customers who already use Juniper switches, routers or security appliances in other parts of their network.
