    ES2-S1 GE-8 IOAs Overview

    The E120 and E320 routers support the ES2-S1 GE-8 IOA. Other E Series routers do not support the ES2-S1 GE-8 IOA.

    The ES2-S1 GE-8 IOA is offered in a halfheight size that enables you to configure it in either of the two IOA bays that are available for each slot. You can install the ES2-S1 GE-8 IOA in both IOA bays. For more information about installing IOAs, see the E120 and E320 Hardware Guide.

    The ES2-S1 GE-8 IOA has eight ports. The IOA can use either fiber-optic or copper SFPs. The IOA accepts up to four pairs (Tx/Rx) of LC-style fiber-optic connectors that support different optical modes and cabling distances. Alternatively, the IOA supports up to eight pairs of copper SFPs.

    Note: The ES2-S1 GE-8 IOA has a logical port, numbered port 8, that is reserved for the hardware multicast packet replication feature. For more information, see JunosE Multicast Routing Configuration Guide.

    The ES2-S1 GE-8 IOA pairs with either the ES2 4G line module (LM), ES2 10G LM, and the ES2 10G ADV LM to provide access services.

    ES2 4G LM Combination

    For more information about the ES2 4G LM, see Unresolved xref.

    When paired with the ES2 4G LM, you can combine the ES2-S1 GE-8 IOA in a slot with one of the following IOA types:

    • ES2-S1 OC3-8 ATM IOA
    • ES2-S1 OC12-2 ATM IOA
    • ES2-S1 OC12-2 POS IOA

    Table 3 lists the average data rate when combining an ES2-S1 GE-8 IOA in one adapter bay with the ES2-S1 OC3-8 ATM IOA, or the ES2-S1 OC12-2 ATM IOA, or the ES2-S1 OC12-2 POS IOA in another adapter bay. Because the OC3/STM1 and OC12/STM4 IOAs use less than half of the full bandwidth of the ES2 4G LM, the router allocates these IOAs as much bandwidth as they can use. The ES2-S1 GE-8 IOA uses any remaining bandwidth.

    Each OC12/STM4 port has a maximum theoretical bandwidth of 622 Mbps. Each OC3/STM1 port has a maximum theoretical bandwidth of 155 Mbps. Therefore, the OC12/STM4 IOAs have a maximum theoretical bandwidth of 1.244 Gbps and the OC3/STM1 IOA has an maximum theoretical bandwidth of 1.244 Gbps.

    Managing High-Density Ethernet

    With a 100 Gbps fabric configuration, the overall data rate for the ES2 4G LM with ES2-S1 GE-8 IOAs is 3.3 Gbps. With a 120 Gbps fabric configuration or a 320 Gbps fabric configuration, the overall data rate for the ES2 4G LM with ES2-S1 GE-8 IOAs is 3.8 Gbps. In both configurations, the line module becomes highly oversubscribed because of the IOA available wire rate. When paired with the ES2 4G LM, the data rate of the ES2-S1 GE-8 IOA is bandwidth limited with larger frames, and the packet rate is limited with smaller frames.

    Note: The overall data rate of the ES2-S1 GE-8 IOA is 0.1 Gbps less than other IOAs that pair with the ES2 4G LM because of fair bandwidth allocation across the eight ports.

    Currently, flow control using MAC pause frames is disabled on the ES2-S1 GE-8 IOA. The IOA does not transmit or receive pause frames.

    For more information about high-density Ethernet on E Series routers, see High-Density Ethernet Overview.

    ES2 10G LM Combination

    When paired with the ES2 10G LM, you can only combine the ES2-S1 GE-8 IOA in a slot with another ES2-S1 GE-8 IOA.

    With a 100 Gbps fabric configuration, the E320 router can accommodate up to 2 combinations of ES2 10G LMs and ES2-S1 GE-8 IOAs. You must install a combination in either of the turbo slots (slot 2 or slot 4). The 100 Gbps allocates 10 Gbps of overall bandwidth to each of these slots.

    With a 120 Gbps fabric configuration, the E120 router can accommodate up to 6 combinations of ES2 10G LMs and ES2-S1 GE-8 IOAs. You can install a combination in any of the line module slots, each of which is allocated 10 Gbps of overall bandwidth.

    With a 320 Gbps fabric configuration, the E320 router can accommodate up to 12 combinations of ES2 10G LMs and ES2-S1 GE-8 IOAs. You can install a combination in any of the line module slots, each of which is allocated 10 Gbps of overall bandwidth.

    Bandwidth and Line Rate Considerations

    Each ES2-S1 GE-8 IOA is connected to the ES2 10G LM through a 5 Gbps bus. Therefore, the aggregate bandwidth of any IOA is limited to 5 Gbps.

    Table 4 lists the average data rate on the ES2-S1 GE-8 IOA when installed in E120 and E320 routers with one ES2 10G LM installed.

    Managing High-Density Ethernet

    When installed in an E120 or an E320 router with any SRP module combination, the overall data rate for the ES2 10G LM with one ES2-S1 GE-8 IOA is limited to 5 Gbps. The overall data rate for the ES2 10G LM with two ES2-S1 GE-8 IOAs is limited to 10 Gbps. In all configurations, the line module can become oversubscribed because of the IOA available wire rate (8 Gbps).

    Currently, flow control using MAC pause frames is disabled on the ES2-S1 GE-8 IOA. The IOA does not transmit or receive pause frames.

    ES2 10G ADV LM Combination

    You can combine an ES2–S1 GE-8 IOA in a slot only with another ES2–S1 GE-8 IOA when paired with the ES2 10G ADV LM.

    With a 120 Gbps fabric configuration, the E120 router can accommodate up to 6 combinations of ES2 10G ADV LMs and ES2-S1 GE-8 IOAs. You can install a combination in any of the line module slots, each of which is allocated 10 Gbps of overall bandwidth.

    With a 320 Gbps fabric configuration, the E320 router can accommodate up to 12 combinations of ES2 10G ADV LMs and ES2-S1 GE-8 IOAs. You can install a combination in any of the line module slots, each of which is allocated 10 Gbps of overall bandwidth.

    Bandwidth and Line Rate Considerations

    Each ES2-S1 GE-8 IOA is connected to the ES2 10G ADV LM through a 5 Gbps bus. Therefore, the aggregate bandwidth of any IOA is limited to 5 Gbps.
