Additional Information

Chassis

One of the following:

  • EX2300-C-12T
  • EX2300-C-12P
  • EX2300-24T
  • EX2300-24P
  • EX2300-24T-DC
  • EX2300-48T
  • EX2300-48P

Switch chassis

Chassis Physical Specifications for EX2300 Switches

FPC (n)

Abbreviated name of the Flexible PIC Concentrator (FPC)

One of the following:

  • EX2300-C-12T
  • EX2300-C-12P
  • EX2300-24T
  • EX2300-24P
  • EX2300-24T-DC
  • EX2300-48T
  • EX2300-48P

Value of n is always 0.

The switch does not have actual FPCs. In this case, FPC refers to the switch itself.

Understanding Interface Naming Conventions on EX Series Switches

On EX2300 Virtual Chassis:

  • Member ID of the switch within the Virtual Chassis

n is a value in the range of 0 through 3.

In this case, the FPC number refers to the member ID assigned to the switch.

PIC (n)

Abbreviated name of the Physical Interface Card (PIC)

n is a value in the range 0 through 1.

The switch does not have actual PIC devices; see entries for PIC 0 through PIC 1 for the equivalent item on the switch

Understanding Interface Naming Conventions on EX Series Switches

One of the following:

  • 12x 10/100/1000 BASE-T
  • 24x 10/100/1000 BASE-T
  • 48x 10/100/1000 BASE-T
