    Shall we determine the license on purchasing EX 4600   in other words is the license come by default with the device isn't the advanced feature license ?

    another inquiry: 

    Does its ports support POE or POE + ?  I think no please confirm 

    If we need to run some ports with speed 10/100/100 UTP which SFP will fit in this scenario as I can see each speed need a corresponding SFP especially in this model EX 4600..

    EX4600 comes with a basic license. In case you need features like BGP, MPLS, IS-IS or VXLAN, you need to purchase the license EX4600-AFL additionally. For MACsec, you need the license EX-QFX-MACSEC-AGG:



    No, EX4600 does not support PoE or PoE+.


    EX4600 just support the speeds 100m, 1g or 10g. 10m is not supported anymore:



    For copper connections, you need the appropriate Copper SFPs, like QFX-SFP-1GE-T. You can find all supported Transceivers here:

    As per your reply,

    Does the basic license help the switch to run as a layer three switch ? 

    regarding the SFPs, I checked the link before so I asked my question to assure that there are only 1 G copper which will be suitable for 10,100,1000 UTP  Am I Right ?

    Everything except BGP, MPLS, IS-IS or VXLAN works with the basic license. If you want to configure a family inet interface and use OSPF, this should work with the basic license.


    The 1G copper SFPs are only suitable for 100,1000. Please note that 10m is not supported in general on EX4600 platform (hardware limitation).

    You mean by 10 m through a SFP 10 G copper isn't supported right ?

    On this platform, 10m and 10g copper are not supported. Only 100m and 1g copper are supported.
