Juniper Networks vMX 3D Universal Edge Router
- The vMX is a true MX Series 3D Universal Edge Router that is optimized to run as software on x86 servers. It helps service providers and enterprises quickly and economically leverage virtualization without compromising on features or performance.
- The vMX supports sophisticated routing services and applications, including vPE and vCPE, and is ideally suited for agile service introduction and modification for both service provider and enterprise applications.
- With its “pay as you grow” licensing model, the vMX reduces the risks associated with new market entry and service innovation, allowing network operators to start small, move fast and stay profitable.
- The vMX increases service agility by enabling network operators to quickly deploy and scale services by spinning up new routing instances on demand, and by supporting non-disruptive service introductions in parallel with current services. This approach eliminates the risk, complexity and delay associated with reconfiguring and requalifying the current infrastructure for new services.
“We are honored to win these prestigious awards for the QFX10000 and vMX. Having won awards annually at Interop Tokyo since 2007, we are glad to be recognized again for our continued focus on innovation, enabling us to create industry leading networking solutions that help our customers automate, scale and create ubiquitous networks that are empowering businesses and consumers to do more every day.”
