Juniper Networks announced last week a new, high-end switch aimed at large enterprises that fills out its extensive switching platform and provides solution providers with products to meet the needs of customers of any size.

Chris Spain, vice president of product management and technical marketing in Juniper's Ethernet products group, says that with the launch of Juniper's new EX 8216 switch, solution providers now have a solution specifically built to handle customers' needs for increased performance and simplicity in cloud computing deployments.

The EX 8200 line, which includes the 16-slot EX8216 and the eight-slot EX8208, delivers extremely high port density, power efficiency and scalability that customers need for their cloud computing environments and to support next-generation Web 2.0 applications, he says, for customers of any size.

"We now have a comprehensive switching platform for solution providers so they can cover very large enterprises, enterprises with branch offices, midmarket companies and even SMBs," Spain says. "This offering tops off the portfolio and allows our partners to reach all the way up to the largest enterprises."
