EX4500 Ethernet
with Virtual Chassis
Product Overview
The Juniper Networks EX4500 line
of Ethernet switches delivers a
scalable, high-performance platform
for supporting high-density 1 gigabit
per second (Gpbs) and 10 Gbps data
center top-of-rack as well as data
center, campus, and service provider
aggregation deployments.
Product Description
Featuring up to 48 wire-speed 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) ports in a two rack unit (2U)
platform, the Juniper Networks® EX4500 Ethernet Switch delivers Layer 2 and Layer 3
connectivity to networked devices such as servers and other switches. The EX4500 base
switch provides 40 fixed 10GbE pluggable ports that can also support GbE connectors for
added flexibility. Two optional high-speed uplink modules offer four additional 10GbE small
form-factor pluggable transceiver (SFP+) ports each for connecting to upstream devices.
By targeting high-density 10GbE top-of-rack and aggregation deployments in the
data center, campus, and service provider environments, EX4500 switches perfectly
complement the Juniper Networks EX Series Ethernet Switch product family: the Juniper
Networks EX2200 line and EX3200 line designed for low-density access deployments;
the EX4200 line designed for data center and campus GbE access and aggregation
deployments; and the EX8200 line of Ethernet switches designed for data center and
campus core and aggregation environments.
Virtual Chassis Technology
The EX4500 supports Juniper Networks’ unique Virtual Chassis technology, which enables
up to 10 interconnected switches to operate as a single, logical device with a single IP
address. When deployed in a Virtual Chassis configuration, the EX4500 switches are
connected over a 128 Gbps backplane using Virtual Chassis interconnect cables. EX4500
switches can also be interconnected using a link aggregation (LAG) of up to eight SFP+
10 GbE line-rate links, allowing switches to reside in different locations. Interconnected
switches are monitored and managed as a single device, enabling enterprises to separate
physical topology from logical groupings of endpoints and allowing more efficient
resource utilization.
In the data center, using Virtual Chassis technology at the top of rack or end of row to
aggregate servers provides flexibility in the deployment of uplinks. Rather than requiring
redundant links for each physical switch to ensure high availability, redundant links
are only needed for each Virtual Chassis group. EX4500 and EX4200 switches may be
combined within a single Virtual Chassis configuration to support environments where
both GbE and 10GbE servers are present.

and compact solution for aggregating 10GbE uplinks. Its feature
set provides simplicity, scalability, availability, adaptability and
The EX4500 offers redundant cooling and is available with
redundant power supplies. A Virtual Chassis configuration – with
several EX4500 switches – provides redundant routing engines
and a network fabric. In addition, the EX4500 offers many other
features that increase the availability of your network, including
Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Equal-cost multipath (ECMP),
link aggregation group (LAG), links distributed across multiple
slots, Graceful Routing Engine switchover (GRES), graceful
protocol restart, and Quality of Service (QoS) to prioritize timesensitive data.
modularity to your network.
Virtual Chassis on the EX4500 brings important simplification
features to the campus aggregation layer. It eliminates the need
for Spanning Tree, VRRP, complex routing, or VLAN configuration,
therefore simplifying the management of the network. The
EX4500 with Virtual Chassis reduces the number of virtual
devices to manage and can even lead to a reduction in the number
of network tiers. A single Virtual Chassis configuration can also
span multiple nodes, reducing the need for uplinks and limiting the
need for larger and more expensive nodes on superior tiers.
With Juniper Networks Junos® operating system shared across
the entire EX Series platform and the EX4500 positioned in the
top-of-rack and campus aggregation, the short learning curve
enables you to quickly manage a complete architecture from one
common set of instructions and one pane of glass. In addition,
a single EX4500 can support up to 48 10GbE ports at line rate,
enabling you to scale even in the most demanding environments.
In addition, Virtual Chassis technology makes it easy to scale
while reducing the complexity of managing a larger network; by
Adaptable and Modular
As your business grows, your needs change and your network needs
to evolve. With its small form factor (2RU) and complete switch
features (with a supervisor, up to 48 10GbE ports, available in one
box), the EX4500 can be easily redeployed in different environments
and physical layouts. The dual-speed interfaces of the EX4500
enable you to transition your environments from GbE to 10GbE. The
capacity of your EX4500 switch can easily be virtually increased by
simply adding more switches to the Virtual Chassis configuration,
without increasing the number of switches you have to manage. The
modularity of an EX4500 with Virtual Chassis is clearly comparable
to the adaptability of a modular switch.

Campus Deployments
The EX4500 also offers an economical, power efficient and
compact solution for aggregating 10GbE uplinks from access
devices in building and campus deployments (see Figure 3).
The switch’s dual-speed interfaces also support environments
transitioning from GbE to 10GbE.
The EX4500 easily meets enterprise core switch requirements,
delivering wire-speed performance on every port, full device
redundancy, support for Layer 3 dynamic routing protocols such
as RIP and OSPF, and a comprehensive security and quality-ofservice (QoS) feature set.
Data Center Deployments
The EX4500 Ethernet Switch is designed for demanding data center
applications where high performance, high availability, and energy
efficiency are key requirements (see Figure 1). Operating at wire
speed, the EX4500 switches deliver 714 Mpps throughput and a data
rate of 960 Gbps (full duplex) for both Layer 2 and Layer 3 protocols.
An industry first and only, EX4500s can be interconnected in a Virtual
Chassis configuration that also includes EX4200s, creating a single
logical switch that offers a variety of port and density options for
mixed server environments.
Flexible deployment options enable the EX4500 to support backto-front and front-to-back cooling, which ensures consistency
with server designs for hot and cold aisle deployments. Front- and
rear-facing configuration options ensure closer proximity to server
ports, optimizing performance and keeping cable lengths short and
manageable. The EX4500 is also very environmentally conscious,
drawing less than eight watts per port under maximum load.
For small data centers, the EX4500, in a Virtual Chassis
configuration, is ideally deployed as the aggregation/core
switch, aggregating 10GbE uplinks from EX4200 Virtual Chassis
configurations in the access layer (see Figure 2).
Customers introducing 10GbE into their racks will be able to use
the EX4500 to add 10GbE-attached servers, iSCSI, and networkattached storage (NAS) with minimal impact to the current
switching infrastructure.
The EX4500 also includes hardware support for the Data
Center Bridging (DCB) feature set, also referred to as Converged
Enhanced Ethernet (CEE). DCB is a collection of individual
IEEE standards that allow for Ethernet-based I/O and network
convergence, including support for FCoE.
10GbE DCB and I/O Convergence Deployments
The EX4500 is a full IEEE DCB- and T11 FC-BB-5-based FCoE
Transit Switch, delivering a high-performance solution for
converged server edge access environments. As an FCoE Transit
Switch, the EX4500 provides a pure IEEE DCB-converged access
layer between FCoE-enabled servers and an FCoE-enabled Fibre
Channel SAN (see Figure 4).
The EX4500 also supports FC Initiation Protocol (FIP) snooping,
which provides perimeter protection to ensure that the presence
of an Ethernet layer does not impact existing SAN security
policies. The FCoE Transit Switch functionality, along with Prioritybased Flow Control (PFC) and Data Center Bridging Exchange
(DCBX), are included as part of the default software; no additional
licenses are required.
Junos Operating System
The EX4500 runs the same Juniper Networks Junos operating
system that is used by other EX Series Ethernet Switches, as
well as all Juniper Networks routers and Juniper Networks SRX
Series Services Gateways. By utilizing a common operating
system, Juniper Networks delivers a consistent implementation
and operation of control plane features across all products.
To maintain that consistency, Junos OS adheres to a highly

disciplined development process that uses a single source code,
follows a single quarterly release train, and employs a highly
available modular architecture that prevents isolated failures from
bringing down an entire system.
These attributes are fundamental to the core value of the
software, enabling all Junos OS-powered products to be updated
simultaneously with the same software release. All features are
fully regression tested, making each new release a true superset
of the previous version; customers can deploy the software
with complete confidence that all existing capabilities will be
maintained and operate in the same way.
Management Options
Energy Efficient
Consuming less than eight watts per 10GbE interface, the EX4500
offers a low power solution for 10GbE top-of-rack, end-of-row,
