Juniper Networks routing platforms meet a full range of networking needs from small branch offices to the largest TeraPop sites in the world. Table 4-1 outlines the different types of platforms. Chapter 10 helps you in deploying the routing platforms in your network.
The routing platforms support IPv4 and IPv6 addressing, all standard routing protocols, routing policy, multicast (traffic from one point that must go to many points), and MPLS VPNs. Additionally, the platforms offer stateful firewall, many types of tunneling and other security features, classification and accounting of traffic, and other services that require rich packet processing along with many High Availability features.
