    Nodal Management for Juniper Networks Routers and Switches

    PSM supports management of the following interfaces on Juniper Networks routers and switches:

    • MX Series router
      • 100GE interface on the 100-Gigabit DWDM OTN MIC with CFP2-ACO (MIC3-100G-DWDM)
      • 10GE interfaces on the 6x40GE + 24x10GE MPC5E (MPC5E-40G10G)
      • 10GE interfaces on the 6x40GE + 24x10GE MPC5EQ (MPC5EQ-40G10G)
      • 10GE interfaces on the 2x100GE + 4x10GE MPC5E (MPC5E-100G10G)
      • 10GE interfaces on the 2x100GE + 4x10GE MPC5EQ (MPC5EQ-100G10G)
    • PTX Series router
      • 100GE interfaces on the 100-Gigabit DWDM OTN PIC with CFP2-ACO (PTX-5-100G-WDM)
    • QFX Series switch
      • Ports on the QFX10000 6-port 200G DWDM card (QFX10000-6C-DWDM)

    PSM supports this same set of interfaces for service activation. See Optical Services for more information.

    Note: These interfaces must already exist. You cannot use PSM to create these interfaces.

    The following management functions are supported:

    Editing an Interface

    Use this procedure to edit an interface on a port on an MX Series or PTX Series router or QFX Series switch.

    This procedure uses the MX Series router as an example but applies equally to MX Series and PTX Series routers and QFX Series switches. There might be slight differences between devices but the general procedure is the same.

    1. Expand an MX Series or PTX Series router or QFX Series switch in the Network tree to show the shelves in that router or switch.

    2. Expand a shelf to show the slots in that shelf.

    3. Expand a slot to show the MICs/PICs in the MPC/FPC in that slot.

    4. Expand a MIC/PIC to show the ports for that MIC/PIC.

    5. If you are configuring a QFX10000 6-port 200G DWDM card (QFX10000-6C-DWDM) on a QFX Series switch, you need to configure the modulation scheme and the optical signal parameters at the port level because the OTU4 signals are modulated within the optical signal on the containing port.

      If you are configuring any other interface, go to 7.

      To configure the modulation scheme and the optical signal parameters on the port, right click the port and select Optical>Edit.

      The following window appears:

    6. Configure the physical attributes:
      • Modulation - Select the modulation scheme.
      • For the other physical parameters, see 10 and 11.

      Proceed to the next step to configure the interface parameters.

    7. Expand a port to show the interfaces for that port.

    8. Right-click a provisioned interface and select Interface >Edit.

      The Edit Interface dialog appears.

      Figure 1: Edit Interface (OTU4)

      Edit Interface (OTU4)

      Note: The Physical panel does not appear here for interfaces where the optical signal is configured at the port level.

    9. Configure the general interface attributes:
      • Type - The type is automatically set based on the interface and cannot be changed.
    10. Configure the protocol attributes. Protocol attributes vary depending on the protocol.
      • FEC - Specify the type of Forward Error Correction (FEC) from the drop-down menu.
      • Transmitted SAPI - Specify the transmit Source Access Point Identifier in the Trail Trace Identifier (TTI) panel or click the Auto Set button. When you click the Auto Set button, PSM automatically configures the SAPI with the IP address and interface name encoded in hexadecimal format. For example, a SAPI of 10.161.33.106-et-1/0/0 is automatically encoded and stored on the device as 0AA1216A010000, where:
        • characters 1 through 8 (0AA1216A) represent the IP address
        • characters 9 and 10 (01) represent the slot
        • characters 11 and 12 (00) represent the PIC/MIC
        • characters 13 and 14 (00) represent the port

        Note: If you specify the SAPI explicitly without using Auto Set and the SAPI is in the IP address and interface name format, PSM automatically encodes the SAPI in hexadecimal format and stores the resulting string on the device. If the SAPI is not in the IP address and interface name format, PSM stores the string as entered without encoding.

      • Expected Receive SAPI - Specify the expected receive SAPI in the TTI panel.

        Note: If the SAPI is in the IP address and interface name format,PSM automatically encodes the SAPI in hexadecimal format and stores the resulting string on the device. If the SAPI is not in the IP address and interface name format, PSM stores the string as entered without encoding.

    11. Configure the physical attributes.
      • Grid - Specify the frequency grid. This cannot be changed for most transceivers.
      • Channel Name, Wavelength, or Frequency - Specify the desired channel, the desired wavelength, or the desired frequency. Setting one field automatically sets the others. This can only be specified for tunable transceivers.
      • Loopback - Not supported.
      • Laser Enabled - Not supported.
      • TX Power - Specify the transmit power of the laser.
      • LOS Alarm Threshold - Specify the Loss of Signal (LOS) threshold above which an alarm is raised.
      • LOS Warning Threshold Specify the LOS threshold above which a warning is issued.
    12. When you are finished, click OK.

      The PSM server sends the configuration request to the router or switch. You can monitor the status of the request through the View >Server >Tasks window. The new provisioning appears in PSM a short while after the task completes successfully.

    Enabling or Disabling a Port

    Use this procedure to administratively enable or disable a supported port on an MX Series or PTX Series router or QFX Series switch.

    This procedure uses the MX Series router as an example but applies equally to MX Series and PTX Series routers and QFX Series switches. There might be slight differences between devices but the general procedure is the same.

    1. Expand an MX Series or PTX Series router or QFX Series switch in the Network tree to show the shelves in that router or switch.

    2. Expand a shelf to show the slots in that shelf.

    3. Expand a slot to show the PICs or MICs in that slot.

    4. Expand a PIC or MIC to show the ports.

    5. Enable or disable a port as follows.
      1. To enable a provisioned port, right click the port and select Admin State >Enable.
      2. To disable a provisioned port, right click the port and select Admin State >Disable.

    Viewing Interface PMs on an MX Series or PTX Series Router or QFX Series Switch

    Use this procedure to view current interface PMs on an MX Series or PTX Series router or QFX Series switch.

    This procedure uses the MX Series router as an example but applies equally to MX Series and PTX Series routers and QFX Series switches. There might be slight differences between devices but the general procedure is the same.

    1. Expand an MX Series or PTX Series router or QFX Series switch in the Network tree to show the shelves in that router or switch.

    2. Expand a shelf to show the slots in that shelf.

    3. Expand a slot to show the PICs or MICs in that slot.

    4. Expand a PIC or MIC to show the ports.

    5. Expand a port to show the interfaces for that port.

    6. Right-click a provisioned interface and select Interface PMs >View.

      The Interface Current PM window appears:

      The PMs are listed for the interface selected.

      Note: This window shows a snapshot of the PM counts. The counts do not update automatically in this window. To see the latest counts, click the Refresh button.

    7. To select what columns to display, right-click anywhere in the headings row to bring up a column selection window.

      Check or uncheck column headings as desired.

    8. To sort the PMs based on column values, click on the column heading that you want to sort.
    9. To export the PM data to a CSV file, click Export and save the file.
