The MX2008 addresses an extensive array of applications, including core, edge, and converged edge and core applications. Its ultra-high density and performance make it suitable for diverse uses such as residential and business services, Data Center Interconnect (DCI), SDN gateway, and services routing.

Long-Term Investment Protection

Designed to deliver outstanding scale for long-term traffic growth, the MX2008 provides a future-proof solution. Its support for the same MPCs used across various MX Series platforms ensures a seamless upgrade path for users with evolving network requirements.

Advanced Power Design

Emphasizing energy efficiency, the MX2008 incorporates advanced power-saving features. This not only contributes to containing operational expenditure but also aligns with high standards of energy efficiency in today’s environmentally conscious landscape.


The MX2008 integrates seamlessly with standards-based SDN controllers like the Contrail Cloud Platform. This SDN readiness positions the MX2008 as an efficient gateway between physical and virtual network elements, aligning with the evolving landscape of software-defined networking.


The carrier-grade MX2008 Universal Routing Platform is strategically positioned as a high-performance networking solution, specifically tailored for service providers and cloud operators anticipating significant growth in traffic, subscribers, and services. This SDN-ready platform, neatly condensed within a compact 24 rack units, stands out for its remarkable combination of high density, capacity, and throughput.

With its robust architecture and the inclusion of the Modular Port Concentrator 11E (MPC11E) line card, the MX2008 achieves an impressive throughput of 40 Tbps. This capability supports dense multirate interfaces, accommodating 100GbE, 200GbE, or 400GbE—all within a single chassis. The MX2008’s exceptional density and performance make it an ideal solution for a spectrum of applications, spanning edge, core, and converged edge and core scenarios.

Designed to cater to diverse application scenarios, the MX2008 excels in areas such as business VPNs, next-generation broadband multiplay, and high-volume Internet and data center internetworking. It demonstrates its adaptability by addressing the evolving landscape of mobile services through the incorporation of sophisticated timing and virtualization capabilities.

The MX2008 sets a new standard for network availability by incorporating a comprehensive suite of resiliency features. These include N+1 fabric redundancy, control plane redundancy, N+N power feed redundancy, and N+1 power supply module redundancy. Furthermore, the innovative Virtual Chassis technology not only supports chassis-level redundancy but also enables the efficient management of two routers as a unified element.
