EX2200 Ethernet Switches Frequently Asked Questions

What is the EX2200?
The Juniper Networks EX2200 line of fixed-configuration Ethernet switches is a highly cost-effective gigabit Ethernet (GbE) access
switch for branch offices and campus networks.

What models of the EX2200 line are available?

Four platform configurations are available, offering 24 and 48 10/100/1000BASE-T ports with and without Power over Ethernet
(PoE). Each model also includes four fixed front-panel small form-factor pluggable transceiver (SFP) GbE uplink ports.

Where will the EX2200 switches be deployed?

The EX2200 switches are designed for branch offices and low-density wiring closet environments requiring high performance, low
latency, high availability, and energy efficiency. Additionally, the EX2200 is ideal for open office environments such as workgroups,
retail locations and classrooms due to its low acoustic signature and small footprint.

What are the competitive advantages of the EX2200 switches compared to similar platforms?
The EX2200 line of Ethernet switches delivers a level of functionality and performance normally associated with higher cost
solutions, including the following:
10/100/1000BASE-T interfaces at a price point where other vendors offer 10/100BASE-TX
True 24+4 and 48+4 configuration, so users do not have to sacrifice fixed 10/100/1000BASE-T ports for uplinks
Wire-rate performance on all ports
Low power consumption (<2W/port), low-acoustic fans and a small 10-inch-deep footprint enable flexible, environmentally
friendly deployment
Hardware-based access control lists for high-performance implementation and integration of access security, such as Juniper
Networks Unified Access Control (UAC)
Support for IEEE802.3at PoE+
Support for Layer 2 protocols as well as Layer 3 protocols such as RIP and static routing as part of the base license
Ease of deployment with features like USB support and DHCP download of image and configuration files for mass
Advanced class-of-service features including eight hardware queues as well as policing and shaping
Juniper Networks Junos operating system ensures consistent control plane feature implementation
Modular Junos software prevents a switch reboot if a single protocol feature fails

EX2200 Ethernet Switches FAQs: March 2010

Does the EX2200 offer 802.3at Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+)?
The EX2200 24- and 48-port PoE EX2200 switches support 802.3af standards-based PoE for powering networked devices such as
telephones, video cameras, and wireless LAN (WLAN) access points in converged networks. The EX2200 PoE switches are also
capable of supporting 802.3at standards-based PoE+ for powering networked devices like multiple radio IEEE 802.11n wireless
access points and video phones that may require more than the 15.4 watts available with IEEE 802.3af.

Does the EX2200 support GbE connectivity?

In addition to the 24 and 48 ports of 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ-45 interfaces, the EX2200 provides four front-panel SFP GbE uplink
ports for high-speed connectivity to aggregation layer switches or other upstream devices.

Does the EX2200 support 10GbE connectivity?

No. The EX2200 line is designed for low-density environments, such as small wiring closets and branch offices, where 10Gbps
Ethernet uplinks are typically not required. The EX3200 and EX4200 lines offer modular uplinks with up to two 10Gbps interfaces
for customers requiring 10GbE uplinks.

Can the EX2200 switches support Layer 3 Features?

The EX2200 switches support static routes as well as RIP as part of the base license. An optional enhanced license for supporting
additional Layer 3 protocols such as OSPF and PIM-SM/SSM/DM is currently on the roadmap.

Does the EX2200 line support Virtual Chassis technology?

The EX2200 is a low-cost, standalone, fixed configuration Ethernet switch and does not support Virtual Chassis technology.

How do the features of the EX2200 line compare to the EX3200 and EX4200 lines?
The EX2200 is an entry-level Ethernet switch designed for low-density wiring closets and branch office locations. The EX2200 may
be positioned in the majority of these locations where densities are not expected to exceed 48 ports. However, requirements such as
advanced routing protocols (OSPF, IPv6, BGP), DC power supplies, 10GbE uplinks and/or field-replaceable power and fans are best
served by the EX3200 line of Ethernet switches.
The EX4200 line of Ethernet switches should be positioned for locations requiring greater than 48 ports or the highest availability with
redundant power and fans.

Does the EX2200 make the EX3200 line obsolete?

No, EX2200 line of switches does not obsolete the EX3200 switches. The EX3200 line is still the entry-level EX Series solution for
users requiring 10GbE uplinks, DC power supplies, field-replaceable power and fans, and advanced routing protocols (OSPF, IPv6,
BGP etc.).

What is the warranty for the EX2200 line?

The EX2200, just like the EX3200 and EX4200 switches, offers a limited lifetime hardware warranty that provides return-to-factory
switch replacement for as long as the original purchaser owns the product. Power supplies and fan trays are covered for a period of
five years. For complete details, please visit www.juniper.net/support/warranty/.

Do the EX2200 switches have NEBS support certification?

Network Equipment Building System (NEBS) compliance is a requirement for an equipment to be used in central office by access
providers including Local Exchange Carriers (LECs), Competitive Access Providers (CAPs), Competitive Local Exchange Carriers
(CLECs), Internet Service Providers (ISPs), and Access Service Providers (ASPs). NEBS is scheduled to be supported on EX2200 in
2H, 2010.

When will the EX2200 switches be TIC and JITC certified?

The Test integration center (TIC) and Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) are United States military organizations that test
technology that pertains to multiple branches of the armed services and government. The EX2200 switches are scheduled to undergo
TIC and JITC testing with Junos 10.4 in Q4, 2010.

Do the EX Series switches meet the federal governments Common Criteria EAL 3 requirements?
The Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation (abbreviated as Common Criteria or CC) is an international
standard (ISO/IEC 15408) for computer security certification. The EX2200 series switches are scheduled for EAL 3 certification with
the Junos 10.4 release.

What are the plans for the EX2200 switches to comply with the Trade Agreement Act (TAA) or the Foreign
Military Financing (FMF) program?
The TAA and FMF regulations require government agencies to purchase products manufactured only in specific countries. TAA- and
FMF-compliant versions of EX2200 are scheduled to be available in Q2, 2010.

What ships with the EX2200 switches?
