Juniper EX 4200 / 3200 / 3300 as Router?



  • Hello,

    can someone tell me about the performance and options on the EX Series Switches to use them as Router?

    I have a small network of 50 Servers. The data volume is not over 1Gbit/s atm ist about 100Mbit/s. The Idea to have a Router in 1 U is very nice and I dont have the money to buy a MX80 (5,20,40). I know that the Performance from the MX Series is much higher than an EX 4200.

    But is the EX 4200/3200/3300 enouth to Route BGP announce an AS make some Vlan’s?

    Is an EX Switch compareable with an m7i from the Performance?



  • Hi,

    I’ve got good experiences with EX3200 as routers. We use six of them as backbone routers with up to 4 virtual routers, all in seperated OSPF areas. I don’t have experience with BGP.

    gr,
