Scale for Future Investments

Expanding up to an impressive 12 Tbps, the MX960 ensures lasting investment protection by accommodating 24 400GbE interfaces and 120 100GbE interfaces. This scalable infrastructure paves the way for long-term adaptability to evolving network needs.

Comprehensive Service Integration

The MX960 seamlessly integrates a diverse set of services, ranging from carrier-grade NAT (CGNAT) to stateful firewall and deep packet inspection. This integration caters to a broad spectrum of applications while fostering efficient network and service consolidation.

SDN Empowerment

With innate SDN capabilities, the MX960 seamlessly integrates with standards-based SDN controllers like the Contrail Cloud Platform. This positions the MX960 as an ideal anchor point for service chains, encompassing both physical and virtual elements. The result is a highly elastic, automated, and customized service delivery.

Encryption without Compromise

Fueled by the cutting-edge Juniper Penta silicon, the MX960 comes equipped with embedded MACsec and IPsec encryption, ensuring robust security without sacrificing performance. This built-in encryption feature adds an extra layer of protection to your network data.

Edge-Centric Threat Intelligence

Leveraging SecIntel, Juniper’s security intelligence feed, the MX960 enables the identification and blocking of malicious traffic. Through customizable policies configured on the MX router, this threat intelligence extends coverage to command-and-control (C&C) servers, offering dynamic security through custom whitelists and blacklists.


The MX960 Universal Routing Platform, enriched with SDN capabilities, has demonstrated its effectiveness in the most extensive service provider, cable, mobile, and data center networks globally. Boasting a remarkable 12 Tbps of system capacity, it occupies just one-third of a standard telco rack. Supporting high-density interfaces, including 10GbE, 40GbE, 100GbE, and 400GbE, alongside traditional SONET/SDH, ATM, and PDH connectivity, the MX960 offers versatile solutions.

This high-performance MX960 is a powerhouse, featuring scalable routing, switching, security, and service functionalities. It drives revenue-generating applications, facilitates network consolidation, and enables service convergence. Notable attributes encompass support for Flexible Ethernet (FlexE), a diverse array of Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPN services, advanced broadband network gateway (BNG) functions, and integrated routing, switching, and security services.

Driven by the robust Junos OS and the adaptable Juniper Penta silicon, the MX960 is strategically deployed in mission-critical service provider and enterprise networks globally. Its deployment aids network operators in fortifying their networks and businesses, ensuring swift adaptability to the ever-evolving market dynamics of the cloud era.
