Services Processing Cards

Services Processing Cards (SPCs) are common form-factor module (CFM) cards that provide the processing power to run integrated services such as firewall, IP Security (IPsec), and intrusion detection and prevention (IDP). All traffic traversing the services gateway is passed to an SPC to have services processing applied to it. Traffic is intelligently distributed by Network Processing Cards (NPCs) to SPCs for services processing, including session setup based on policies, fast packet processing for packets that match a session, encryption and decryption, and Internet Key Exchange (IKE) negotiation.

  • If a CFM slot is not occupied by a card, you must install a blank panel to shield the empty slot and to allow cooling air to circulate properly through the device.
  • The ONLINE button on the SPC does not perform any function and is currently not supported.

Figure 67 shows an SPC that can be used on an SRX1400 Services Gateway.
