EX9200-2C-8XS Line Card

The line cards in EX9200 switches combine a Packet Forwarding Engine and Ethernet interfaces in a single assembly. Line cards are field-replaceable units (FRUs) that you can install in the line card slots on the front of the switch chassis. Line cards are hot-insertable and hot-removable: You can remove and replace them without powering off the switch or disrupting switch functions.

Line Card Models

Table 27 shows the model number, description of the line card model, and the Junos OS release in which the line card was first supported.

Table 27: EX9200-2C-8XS Line Card



Junos OS Release Required


A line card with two 100-Gigabit Ethernet ports, each of which can house 100-gigabit C form-factor pluggable (CFP) transceivers; and eight 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports, each of which can house 10-gigabit small form-factor pluggable plus (SFP+) transceivers

Line Card Components

The EX9200-2C-8XS line card has:

  • Two 100-Gigabit Ethernet ports, each of which can house CFP transceivers. These ports support 100GBASE-LR4 and 100GBASE-SR10 transceivers.
  • Eight 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports, each of which can house SFP+ transceivers. These ports support 10GBASE-SR, 10GBASE-LR, 10GBASE-ER, and 10GBASE-ZR transceivers.
  • Two dust covers for the two 100-Gigabit Ethernet ports and eight dust covers for the eight 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports
  • Line card LED—An LED labeled OK/FAIL, which indicates the status of the line card. See Line Card LED in an EX9200 Switch.
  • LEDs for the ports—One LED on each port, the Link/Activity LED, which indicates the link status and activity on the port. See Network Port LEDs on Line Cards in an EX9200 Switch.

The ports are divided into two port groups. The four 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports labeled 0/0 through 0/3 and the 100-Gigabit Ethernet port labeled 1/0 form one port group. The four 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports labeled 2/0 through 2/3 and the 100-Gigabit Ethernet port labeled 3/0 form the other port group. The ports in each group share 120 gigabits of bandwidth. Thus, you can transmit up to 120 gigabits of traffic through a port group, without packet drop.
