ACX series universal metro routers

Backhaul access and aggregation routers for service providers and the enterprise.

ACX series routers simplify access and aggregation architectures by eliminating unnecessary layers and network overlays, dramatically reducing CapEx and OpEx. These MEF CE 2.0-compliant routers address a variety of use cases, including business Ethernet services, residential aggregation, small cell, mobile backhaul, and industrial field area networks. ACX series routers are environmentally hardened to ensure business continuity and network reliability.

Juniper Networks® ACX series Universal Access Routers are Juniper’s response to a shift in metro network architecture where the access and aggregation layer is extending the operational intelligence from the service provider edge to the access network. The ACX series simplifies access and aggregation architectures by eliminating unnecessary layers and network overlays, dramatically reducing CapEx and OpEx. Based on architectural simplification and cost reduction, service providers and enterprises can adopt the true universal access paradigm enabled by the ACX series. In addition to MEF CE2.0 compliance for supporting both Ethernet and IP/MPLS, the ACX series provides high capacity and scalability while delivering industry-leading performance with a range of port densities and interface types. Table 1 provides a snapshot of interfaces supported on each ACX Series model. The flexibility and upgradability (mix and match of interface types) make the ACX Series ideal for a wide range of use cases applications.
