1. Routers Types
Juniper routers are primarily available in the following
- 1. E-Series,
- 2. J-Series,
- 3. M-Series, and
- 4. T-Series.
However, here we discuss overview of different series
of routers and architecture and functioning of a typical
M-Series router. A Juniper router runs JUNOS™ networking
software and supports Internet Protocols. The following
discussion would enable us to understand the hardware and
software components of a Juniper router in more detail.
E-Series Routers: The E-series network router support
a suite of Internet routing protocols, including BGP-4,
IS-IS, OSPF, and RIP. E-series edge routers ideal for service
providers that operate high-capacity POPs.
The E-series family of Broadband Services Routers provide
large bandwidth capacities and advanced QoS capabilities,
and designed to act as the aggregation point where service
providers accept and authenticate remote connections from
The E-series family provides bandwidth capacity options
from 5, 10, or 40 Gbps up to 100 and 320 Gbps and supports
high-port density WAN interfaces in a compact package.
Interface options include OC-3/STM-1, OC-12/STM-4, OC-48/STM-16,
Fast Ethernet, and Gigabit Ethernet, as well as channelized
DS-1, DS-3, E1, and E3.
