Description: Juniper EX Series EX2300-24T - Switch - L3 - managed - 24 x 10/100/1000 + 4 x Gigabit SFP / 10 Gigabit SFP+ - desktop, rack-mountable
Mfr Part #: EX2300-24T
The Juniper Networks EX2300 Ethernet Switch offers an economical, entry-level, standalone solution for access layer deployments in branch and remote offices, as well as enterprise campus networks. To simplify network operations, the EX2300 is hardware-ready to act as a satellite device to support a Juniper Networks Junos Fusion Enterprise deployment, which can combine several wiring closets into one logical management platform. For smaller networks, up to four EX2300 switches can be interconnected in a Virtual Chassis configuration, allowing them to be managed as a single switch. The Juniper Networks EX2300 line of Ethernet switches offers a compact, high-performance solution for supporting today's converged network access deployments. Each EX2300 switch includes an ASIC-based Packet Forwarding Engine (PFE) with an integrated CPU to consistently deliver wire-rate forwarding, even with all control plane features enabled. The PoE-enabled EX2300 switch includes a maximum system budget of 740 Watts to deliver up to 30 Watts to select ports.
- Juniper Networks Junos Fusion Enterprise allows more than 100 EX2300 switches to be configured as satellite devices that connect to EX9200 core aggregation devices
- Virtual Chassis technology enables up to four interconnected EX2300 switches to form a single logical device
- Flexible 4x1GbE SFP/10GbE SFP+ uplinks provide high-speed connectivity to aggregation layer switches or other upstream devices
- 24 10/100/1000BASE-T ports
- Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) support is provided on 1GbE ports
- Complete Layer 2 and basic Layer 3 switching capabilities are available
- Simplified management uses Juniper Networks Junos Space Network Director and J-Web GUI
- High availability
To avoid the complexities of the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) without sacrificing network resiliency, the EX2300 employs a redundant trunk group (RTG) to provide the necessary port redundancy and simplify switch configuration. It also supports cross-member link aggregation, which allows redundant link aggregation connections between devices in a single Virtual Chassis configuration, providing an additional level of reliability and availability.
- Converged environments
The EX2300 provides the highest levels of flexibility and features in its class for even demanding converged data, voice, and video environments, delivering a reliable platform for unifying enterprise communications. To ease deployment, the EX2300 supports the industry-standard Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) and LLDP-Media Endpoint Discovery (LLDP-MED) protocol, enabling the switches to automatically discover Ethernet-enabled devices, determine their power requirements, and assign virtual LAN (VLAN) membership. LLDP-MED-based granular PoE management allows the EX2300 to negotiate PoE usage down to a fraction of a watt on powered devices, enabling more efficient PoE utilization across the switch. In addition, the EX2300 supports rich quality-of-service (QoS) functionality for prioritizing data, voice, and video traffic. The switches support eight class-of-service (CoS) queues on every port, enabling them to maintain multilevel, end-to-end traffic prioritizations. The EX2300 also supports a wide range of policy options, including strict priority, low latency, weighted random early detection (WRED), and shaped-deficit weighted roundrobin (SDWRR) queuing.
Working as an enforcement point in Access Policy Infrastructure, the EX2300 provides both standards-based 802.1X port-level access control for multiple devices per port, as well as Layer 2-4 policy enforcement based on user identity, location, device, or a combination of these. A user's identity, device type, machine posture check, and location can be used to determine whether access should be granted and for how long. If access is granted, the switch provides access to the network based on authorization attributes sent by the authentication server. The switch can also apply security policies, QoS policies, or both, or it can mirror user traffic to a central location for logging, monitoring, or threat detection by intrusion prevention systems. The EX2300 also provides a full complement of integrated port security and threat detection features, including Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) snooping, dynamic ARP inspection (DAI), and media access control (MAC) limiting to defend against internal and external spoofing, and man-in-themiddle and denial of service (Dos) attacks.
- Junos Space
Juniper also offers a comprehensive suite of network management tools that provide a smart, simple, and open approach for automating the deployment and operation of a Juniper infrastructure. These tools are based on a single network application platform called Juniper Networks Junos Space, an open, programmable application platform for hosting network infrastructure and operational applications across the entire management life cycle of the network. Explicitly designed to allow partners and customers to build and deploy smart, simple, and easy-touse applications, Junos Space provides multiple management and infrastructure applications for managing Juniper resources and assets, including inventory management, device and interface configuration, automated software management and deployment, and event-driven fault management. These platform applications are embedded within the core product, allowing users to control any part of their environment when used in conjunction with multiple add-on applications. Junos Space supports a full portfolio of applications for automating network infrastructure and operations covering the campus LAN and data center network environments.
