One of the most popular routers in the enterprise and service provider market is the Juniper MX Series. The industry is moving to high-speed, high port-density Ethernet-based routers, and the Juniper MX was designed from the ground up to solve these challenges.
This book is going to show you, step-by-step, how to build a better network using the Juniper MX—it’s such a versatile platform that it can be placed in the core, aggregation, or edge of any type of network and provide instant value. The Juniper MX was designed to be a network virtualization beast. You can virtualize the physical interfaces, logical interfaces, control plane, data plane, network services, and even have virtualized services span several Juniper MX routers. What was traditionally done with an entire army of routers can now be consolidated and virtualized into a single Juniper MX router.
