Juniper Networks has launched a 10-port, 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) physical interface card for its T1600 Series core router, which will enhance the latter's value and flexibility.

The new 10x10GbE PIC will deliver the highest density of 10GbE interfaces on a core router, enabling customers to reduce costs and increase efficiency.

 
These interfaces can be used to aggregate client-facing access interfaces, or to provide efficient connectivity in and between virtualized routers.
 
Also, support for both 100GbE interfaces and high-density, lower-speed interfaces on a single router will be able to improve power, space and management efficiency.
