EX9204 Switch Hardware Overview

Juniper Networks EX9204 Ethernet Switches provide high performance, scalable connectivity, and carrier-class reliability for high-density environments such as campus-aggregation and data-center networks. The EX9204 switch has a throughput of up to 1.6 terabits per second (Tbps) or up to 240 gigabits per second (Gbps) per slot full duplex. The EX9204 switch is a modular system that provides high availability and redundancy for all major hardware components, including Routing Engine modules (RE modules), Switch Fabric modules (SF modules), fan tray (with three redundant fans), and power supplies.

You can manage EX9204 switches by using the same interfaces that you use for managing other devices running the Juniper Networks Junos operating system (Junos OS)—the CLI, the Network and Security Manager (NSM), and Junos Space.

Software

Juniper Networks EX Series Ethernet Switches run Junos OS, which provides Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching, routing, and security services.


Chassis Physical Specifications

The EX9204 switch is five rack units (5 U) in size. Nine EX9204 switches can fit in a standard 48 U rack. Each EX9204 switch is designed to optimize rack space and cabling. See Figure 3, Figure 4, and Figure 5.

Host Subsystem

Switching and routing functionality, system management, and system control functions of an EX9204 switch are performed by the host subsystem. The host subsystem consists of a Routing Engine functioning together with a Switch Fabric.

An EX9204 is a 4-slot chassis that provides two dedicated slots—labeled 1 and 2—for line cards, one dedicated slot—labeled 0—for a host subsystem, and one multifunction slot—labeled 1|0—for either a line card or a host subsystem.

You can install either one or two host subsystems in an EX9204 switch. A base-configuration EX9204 switch has one host subsystem. A redundant-configuration EX9204 switch has a second host subsystem. For more information, see EX9204 Switch Configurations.

Line Cards

Line cards are field-replaceable units (FRUs) that you can install in the line card slots and in the multifunctional slot on the front of the switch chassis. All line cards are hot-removable and hot-insertable.

You can install up to three line cards in an EX9204 switch. Each EX9204 switch has two dedicated line card slots—labeled 1 and 2—and a multifunction slot—labeled 1|0—that you can use for either a line card or a host subsystem.

The line cards in EX9204 switches combine a Packet Forwarding Engine and Ethernet interfaces in a single assembly. Table 15 lists the line cards available for EX9204 switches.

Cooling System

The cooling system in an EX9204 switch is a field-replaceable unit (FRU). It consists of a hot-removable and hot-insertable fan tray. The fan tray contains three fans. The fan tray installs vertically on the right back of the chassis and provides side-to-side chassis cooling. See Cooling System and Airflow in an EX9204 Switch.

Power Supplies

Power supplies for the EX9204 switch are fully redundant, load-sharing, and hot-removable and hot-insertable FRUs. Each EX9204 switch chassis can hold up to four AC or up to two DC power supplies.

Table 16 shows the details of the power supplies available for EX9204 switches.

A base-configuration EX9204 switch ships with two low-line (100–120 VAC) AC power supplies or one high-line (200–240 VAC) AC power supply. An AC-powered, redundant-configuration EX9204 switch ships with four low-line (100–120 VAC) or two high-line (200–240 VAC) AC power supplies. See AC Power Supply in an EX9204 Switch.

A DC-powered, redundant-configuration EX9204 switch ships with two DC power supplies. See DC Power Supply in an EX9204 Switch.

Caution: Do not mix AC and DC power supplies in the same chassis.
