About the Juniper MX80

The Juniper MX80 Universal Routing Platform was released in 2011 by Juniper Networks Inc. as part of the MX3D series of universal routers. The MX 3D Series of routers were a continuation of the initial release of the MX Series of routers which launched in 2006. 

Popular with small businesses and enterprise level companies alike due to the flexibility offered by the platform, the Juniper MX80 Universal Routing Platform is a secure and versatile option that allows for a huge level of scalability.

With upgradeable software available from 20 Gbps to 80 Gbps, the MX80 is capable of handling up to four modular interface card slots and two fixed 10 Gigabit interfaces, which offers considerable flexibility when connecting to a network. Alongside this flexibility, the Juniper MX80 Universal Routing Platform is a relatively compact unit, allowing businesses to utilise the full capabilities of the platform without sacrificing floor space. 

The Juniper MX80 Universal Routing Platform runs on the Junos OS, which is the default operating system for all Juniper routers. By running the Junos Continuity plug-in and Unified In-Service Software Upgrade for Junos OS, network operators can ensure that when upgrading hardware and software there is minimal disruption to the network with the least amount of downtime possible. These upgrades are easy to set up and use, helping reduce ongoing support costs. 

End of life for the Juniper MX80 Universal Routing Platform was announced by Juniper on 30th June 2020 with OEM support for the MX80 scheduled to end on 30th June 2026. Despite the end of support being announced by the OEM, TXO will continue to repair and offer advice for this platform past the date issued by the OEM.
