Juniper EX2300-C Compact Ethernet Switch – 12 Ports – Manageable – Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet – 10/100/1000Base-T, 10GBase-X – 3 Layer Supported – Modular – Twisted Pair, Optical Fiber – 1U High – Rack-mountable, Magnetic Mount, Wall Mountable, Desktop – Lifetime Limited WarrantyProduct Overview
The Juniper Networks EX2300-C Ethernet Switch offers an economical, entry-level solution in a compact, fanless form factor for access layer deployments in branches, retail, and workgroup environments
To simplify network operations, the EX2300-C is hardware-ready1 to act as a satellite device to support a Juniper Networks Junos Fusion Enterprise deployment, which can combine several wiring closets into one logical management platform. For smaller deployments, the EX2300 also supports Juniper Networks Virtual Chassis technology, allowing up to four interconnected switches to be managed as a single logical device, delivering a scalable, pay-as-you-grow solution for expanding networks
The Juniper Networks® EX2300-C Ethernet Switch delivers a compact, silent, and power-efficient platform for low-density branch deployments and commercial access or enterprise workgroup environments outside the wiring closet.
Featuring 12 10/100/1000BASE-T access ports and two 10GbE uplink ports with and without Power over Ethernet (PoE/PoE+) in a fanless design, the EX2300-C switches deliver a powerful solution for supporting services such as unified communications, IP telephony, closed circuit television (CCTV), and other applications in office, classroom, hospitality, and other space and wiring-constrained environments. The key features of the EX2300-C switch include:
- Multiple hardware configurations:
- 12 10/100/1000BASE-T access ports and two SFP+ 10GbE uplink ports
- 12 10/100/1000BASE-T PoE/PoE+ access ports and two SFP+ 10GbE uplink ports
- IEEE 802.3at (PoE+) compliance, allowing a variety of devices to draw power from the switch through the access ports
- Ability to participate as a satellite device in a Juniper Networks Junos® Fusion Enterprise fabric
- Virtual Chassis support, allowing up to four switches to be interconnected and managed as a single logical device (optional license required)
- Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) support for GbE access ports
- Compact design featuring fanless and noiseless operation
Architecture and Key Components
The fixed-configuration EX2300-C line of Ethernet switches delivers complete Layer 2 and basic Layer 3 switching capabilities to satisfy the low-density branch and low-density wiring closet connectivity requirements of today’s high-performance business needs. The EX2300-C models extend that reach into workgroup environments that reside outside the wiring closet, including branch offices, retail access applications, education, hospitality, and other locations where the switch is deployed in open areas inside a building.
Two versions are available. The EX2300-C-12T offers 12 front panel 10/100/1000BASE-T access ports and two SFP+ 10GbE uplink ports. The EX2300-C-12P offers 12 front panel 10/100/1000BASE-T IEEE 802.3af/IEEE 802.3at (PoE/PoE+) access ports, which can be used for powering networked devices such as telephones, video cameras, multiple radio IEEE 802.11ac wireless LAN (WLAN) access points, and videophones in converged network environments. In addition, the EX2300-C-12P has two SFP+ 10GbE uplink ports.
The uplink ports can be used to connect to higher-layer devices such as aggregation switches or routers. The uplink ports can also be configured as Virtual Chassis interfaces and connected via standard 10GbE interfaces. A fixed internal power supply ensures operational simplicity
