EX9200-6QS 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 28 shows the model number, description of the line card model, and the Junos OS release in which the line card was first supported.

Table 28: EX9200-6QS Line Card



Junos OS Release Required


A line card with six 40-Gigabit Ethernet ports, each of which can house 40-gigabit quad small form-factor pluggable plus (QSFP+) transceivers; and 24 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports, each of which can house 10-gigabit small form-factor pluggable (SFP+) transceivers

14.2R1 or later

Caution: Junos OS Release 14.2R1 supports the EX9200-6QS line card except for one specific configuration. See the Junos OS 14.2R2 Release Notes PDF Document for Known Issue PR1068396 to determine whether that configuration applies to your switch and which release to use if the configuration does apply.

See Figure 23.

Line Card Components

The EX9200-6QS line card has:

  • Six 40-Gigabit Ethernet ports, each of which can house QSFP+ transceivers. These ports support 40GBASE-LR4 and 40GBASE-SR4 transceivers. Starting with Junos OS for EX Series switches, Release 15.1 R3, these ports support the JNP-QSFP-40G-LX4 transceiver.
  • 24 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports, each of which can house SFP+ transceivers. These ports support 10GBASE-SR, 10GBASE-LR, 10GBASE-ER, and 10GBASE-ZR transceivers.
  • Line card LED—An LED labeled OK/FAIL, which indicates the status of the line card. See Line Card LED in an EX9200 Switch.
  • Network port LED—One LED on each network 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 six 40-Gigabit Ethernet ports labeled 2/0 through 2/2 and 3/0 through 3/2 form one port group. The twenty-four 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports labeled 0/0 through 0/11 and 1/0 through 1/11 form the other port group. The ports in each group share 240 gigabits of bandwidth. Thus, you can transmit up to 240 gigabits of traffic through a port group, without packet drop.
