Using the Junos OS to Configure a T640 Router Within a Routing Matrix


A routing matrix composed of a TX Matrix router and T640 routers supports the same chassis configuration statements as a standalone router (except ce1, ct3, mlfr-uni-nni-bundles, sparse-dlcis, and vtmapping). By including the lcc statement at the [edit chassis] hierarchy level, you configure PIC-specific features, such as framing, on specific T640 routers. In addition, a routing matrix has two more chassis configuration statements, online-expected and offline.

To configure a T640 router that is connected to a TX Matrix router, include the lcc statement at the [edit chassis] hierarchy level:

number can be 0 through 3.

To configure a T640 router within a routing matrix, include the following statements at the [edit chassis lcc number] hierarchy level:


For the FPC slot number, specify the actual hardware slot number (numbered 0 through 7) as labeled on the T640 router chassis. Do not use the corresponding software FPC number shown in T640 to Routing Matrix FPC Conversion Chart.
