Routing Matrix with TXP-T1600-3D Configuration

 

A routing matrix with the TXP-T1600-3D configuration consists of two types of chassis: a Juniper Networks TX Matrix Plus Router and Juniper Networks T1600 Core Routers.

  • TX Matrix Plus router—A routing matrix contains only one Juniper Networks TX Matrix Plus router. In a routing matrix, a TX Matrix Plus router is also referred to as the switch-fabric chassis (SFC). In the Junos OS command-line interface (CLI), sfc 0 is used to refer to the TX Matrix Plus router. For information about installing and connecting to a TX Matrix Plus router, see the TX Matrix Plus Router Hardware Guide  .

  • T1600 router—In the TXP-T1600-3D configuration, a routing matrix can contain up to eight T1600 routers, numbered from 0 through 7. A T1600 router in a routing matrix is also referred to as a line-card chassis (LCC). In the Junos OS CLI, lcc 0 through lcc 7 are used to refer to T1600 routers in a TXP-T1600-3D configuration. For information about connecting a T1600 router in a routing matrix, see the TX Matrix Plus Router Hardware Guide  .

To enable the TXP-T1600-3D configuration in the Junos OS CLI, the LCC mode on the SFC must be set to t1600. By default, the LCC mode is set to t1600. If the mode is not the set to t1600 (due to previous configurations), you can set the LCC mode to t1600, by including the set lcc-mode lcc lcc-number mode t1600 statement at the [edit chassis] hierarchy level.

In a routing matrix, the TX Matrix Plus router controls all the connected T1600 routers, as shown in Figure 1.
