We wouldn’t be able to give any sort of answer without knowing your current and future requirements. Each model has its own throughput classes, and sometimes a full on MX router isn’t required.

Just out of curiosity, what would you recommend using for a core router/switch from Juniper?


Datasheets show them all as very nice and powerful devices (although they do use a lot of rack space and side to side airflow is painful) but I’m just wondering here what most people use and how good or bad of an experience you have with it 😊
