Juniper Gets Rugged with New Router

Juniper Networks this week announced its latest entrant into the ruggedized space: the LN2600 router. The LN2600 joins the existing LN1000 in Juniper's ruggedized lineup. The LN2600 is a new platform for Juniper, but LN2600similar in some respect to an existing Juniper SRX appliance.

"While the LN2600 leverages existing Juniper technologies and JUNOS, it is a net-new Juniper platform," Robert Grasby, senior product marketing manager for the enterprise business unit at Juniper, told Enterprise Networking Planet.

The LN2600 packs 8 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces inside of its 1U form factor. From a security perspective, the LN2600 resembles the SRX in its Stateful Packet Firewall, IPsec VPN encryption, and integrated IPS.
