    SRX5600 and SRX5800 Services Gateway Card Terminology

    Regardless of orientation, this information uses the same terms for all four edges of the card (see Figure 1):

    • Faceplate—Edge of the card that has connectors to which you connect cables or sockets in which you insert SFP or XFP transceivers.
    • Connector edge—Edge opposite the faceplate; this edge has the connectors that attach to the midplane.
    • Top edge—Edge at the top of the card when it is vertical.
    • Bottom edge—Edge at the bottom of the card when it is vertical.

    Note: This terminology applies to SPCs, IOCs, and SCBs in addition to Routing Engines and port modules.
