ACX500 Universal Metro Router

Hardened router with integrated GPS receiver and security.

The ACX500 is a small form factor, hardened fanless router that delivers up to 6 Gbps throughput. It comes with an integrated software-enabled GPS receiver and supports a rich set of security, timing, and synchronization features. Additionally, ACX500 has been certified for indoor and outdoor use for utilities and railways. It is ideal for small cell, LTE-Advanced mobile backhaul deployments, as well as use cases in the industrial environment.

Three compact form factors are available:

  • ACX500 for indoor deployment
  • ACX500-O and ACX500-O-PoE for outdoor deployment

The temperature-hardened ACX500 indoor model provides four copper 10/100/1000 Mbps ports and two fiber 1 Gbps ports, while the environmentally hardened ACX500-O and ACX500-O-PoE outdoor models provide three copper ports and three fiber ports. Both the ACX500 and the ACX500-O-PoE support Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE++), with a power budget of 80 watts.


The ACX500 also supports Juniper Networks Junos operating system, extensive Layer 2 and Layer 3 features, IP/MPLS with traffic engineering support, rich network management, fault management, service monitoring, and Operation, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) capabilities. Using the Junos SDK, it is easy to customize the provisioning and integration of third-party apps and tools.

ACX500 Features


Support for IPsec, Network Address Translation (NAT), and IEEE 802.1ae MACsec delivers an extra layer of security by giving access solely to allowed elements.

Timing and Synchronization

Most comprehensive clocking technologies include GPS receiver, GM, BC, OC, and TC.

Zero Touch Deployment (ZTD)

Rapid, remote zero touch deployment improves operational efficiency using Junos Space Connectivity Service Director.

PoE++ Enabled

The PoE++ enabled ACX500, with a power budget of 80 W, can readily power small cells or microwaves.

Environmentally Hardened Design

Environmentally hardened design with passive cooling is ideal for outdoor and industrial deployment use cases.

RFC2544 (Generation and Reflection)

RFC2544-based testing gives operators the flexibility to confirm whether a node is ready for service once configured with ZTD.

Traffic Shaping

Hierarchical quality-of-service (HQoS) support allows the ACX500 to shape traffic for each linear configured microwave link.

Junos SDK

Junos SDK makes it easy to customize provisioning and integration with third-party apps and tools.
