Ethernet's flexibility, cost effectiveness, and proven interoperability, along with a continuous stream of enhancements have made it a widely adopted form of connectivity - from data centers and peering at Internet exchange points to the growing trend of metropolitan Ethernet access. The Juniper Networks portfolio of Ethernet interfaces is broad, supporting various port densities of 10/100 Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, and 10-Gigabit Ethernet on the M-series and T-series platforms.
Juniper Networks has further enhanced its portfolio with the advent of Ethernet Intelligent Queuing (IQ) Physical Interface Cards (PICs). These advanced PICs are based on the Q Performance Processor (QPP), a custom high-performance ASIC designed to deliver granular per-VLAN quality-of-service (QoS) capabilities along with extensive instrumentation and diagnostics on a per-VLAN and per-MAC address basis.
Gigabit Ethernet PICs provide 1 Gbps per link, supporting a number of different applications.
