Pronto 3290 Switch
There are 6 Juniper Routers available in the lab, two M7i Multiservice Edge routers and four J6350 Enterprise Service routers.
The router architectures separate control operations from packet forwarding operations, which helps to eliminate processing and traffic bottlenecks. Control operations in the router are performed by the Routing Engine, which runs Junos OS to handle routing protocols, traffic engineering, policy, policing, monitoring, and configuration management.
Application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) enable the router to forward data at the high speeds. Forwarding operations in the router are performed by the Packet Forwarding Engine, which consists of hardware, including ASICs, designed by Juniper Networks.
M7i Edge Routers
The M7i Multiservice Edge Router is a routing system that provides ATM, channelized, Ethernet, IP services, and SONET/SDH interfaces for large networks and network applications, such as those supported by Internet service providers (ISPs).
The router accommodates upto four Physical Interface Cards (PICs). In addition to the PICs, the Fixed Interface Card (FIC) provides two Fast Ethernet ports. The built-in tunnel interface on the Compact Forwarding Engine Board (CFEB) and Enhanced Compact Forwarding Engine Board (CFEB-E) provides tunneling services.
J 6350 Service Routers
The J6350 is a modular router for enterprises running desktops, servers, VoIP, CRM/ERP/SCM applications. The J6350 Modular Router offers six PIM slots for additional LAN/WAN connectivity, Avaya VoIP Gateway, and WAN acceleration.
The router accommodates upto six Physical Interface Cards (PICs). In addition to the PICs, the Fixed Interface Card (FIC) provides 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports.
