Juniper Networks Wednesday unveiled a new line of switches, upgraded routers and made improvements to its physical and virtual security portfolio.

"The announcements today across our routing, switching, security and silicon portfolio reflect a major leap forward in both networking performance and automation," said Juniper CEO Rami Rahim in a statement.

At Juniper's 2015 Innovation Showcase Wednesday, the Sunnyvale, Calif.-based vendor took the wraps off a new line of spine switches, the QFX10000, to give data centers and cloud deployments of all sizes physical and logical scale, performance and better port density, according to the company.

Juniper did not respond to requests for more information on the new products by press time.

But one Juniper partner who attended the Innovation Showcase had high praise for the company's new road map.

"The new QFX10000 is definitely ground-breaking technology," said Jason Gress, president and co-founder of InterVision Systems Technologies. "[These are] considerable enhancements to what they're currently selling; it's going to be game-changing technology."

The QFX10000 is the first data center switch powered by Juniper's new Q5 chip built for telecommunications and cloud service providers that contains 10-, 40- and 100-Gigabit port density.

"We’ve done a lot with the Juniper QFX line, and we're excited about the 100-Ggigabit offering in the QXF10000," said Jeary Beals, partner development manager at Myriad Supply, a New York-based solution provider and Juniper Elite partner. "The 100-Gig switch is exciting because our customers have been asking about it more and more."
