Juniper answers the core network call

Let the core routing upgrade wars begin.

Entering the core routing networking ring is Juniper with a new capability that will enable customers to upgrade their existing T-Series routing gear to support 250 Gbps full duplex slot capacity. Leveraging a new in-house chipset design, Juniper says the upgrade will be able to deliver 4 Tbps of capacity in a half-rack system.  

Available for purchase early next year, the proposed upgrade is likely the first attack on Cisco's proposed MSC 120 core router that claims to support 120 Gbps per-slot. It would also surpass core networking platforms from both Alcatel-Lucent and Huawei--who have advertised support for 100 Gbps per-slot capacity.
