- Expansion module
The NG-MPC2 uses the latest programmable Junos Trio chipset, which features an upgraded CPU and increased memory to provide powerful routing, switching, and services capabilities, including line-rate forwarding, hierarchical quality of service (QoS), integrated video quality assurance, flow monitoring, load balancing, and Network Address Translation (NAT). Both modules support a complete set of Juniper Networks Junos operating system-based Layer 2, Layer 2.5, and Layer 3 features, and both host two Modular Interface Cards (MICs) for flexible high-density Ethernet and time-division multiplexing (TDM) network connectivity.
The NG-MPC2 also supports Junos Continuity, a DevOps-style enhancement to the Junos OS that enables the introduction of new hardware into the MX Series routers by simply loading device drivers and support software, avoiding the need to update the entire OS and restart the router. Junos Continuity helps users avoid costly qualification testing and downtime while introducing new hardware to the network faster.
