TX Matrix Plus TXP-CIP Description

 

TXP-CIP Slots

The TX Matrix Plus router contains two connector interface panels—one for each Routing Engine—that install vertically below the host subsystem into the front right of the chassis in the slots labeled CIP0 and CIP1.

TXP-CIP Components

Figure 1 shows the TXP-CIP.

Each TXP-CIP houses:

  • Ports for connections to the LCC control plane, SFC control plane, and other devices.

    Note

    The SFC control plane ports are reserved for future use.

  • Alarm relay contacts

  • Three LEDs—ACTIVE, OK, FAIL— that indicate the status of the TXP-CIP

  • ACT and SPEED port LEDs for the LCC CTRL PLANE ports 0 through 15

  • Port LEDs for the reserved ports 16 and 17

  • ACT and LINK port LEDs for the SFC CTRL PLANE ports XGE0 through XGE4

The TXP-CIPs are hot-removable and hot-insertable.

TXP-CIP Ports

LCC Control Plane Ports

Control plane connections to the line-card chassis (LCC)in the routing matrix are provided by sixteen 10/100/1000 Base-T copper RJ-45 LCC control plane ports labeled LCC CTRL PLANE 0 through 15 on the TXP-CIP. UTP Category 5E Ethernet cables connect the LCC CTRL PLANE ports in the TXP-CIP in slot CIP0 to the LCC-CB in slot CB0, and the TXP-CIP in slot CIP1 to the LCC-CB in slot CB1 in each LCC. For more information about connecting TXP-CIPs to LCC-CBs, see Control Plane Connections from the TX Matrix Plus Router to the Line-Card Chassis.

Note

The ports labeled 4 through 15 on a TXP-CIP are reserved for future use.

JSC Port

Each TXP-CIP contains a copper RJ-45 port, labeled 17, which can be connected to a JCS1200 Control System. See the JCS1200 Control System Hardware Guide for more information.

Reserved Ports

Each TXP-CIP contains a copper RJ-45 port, labeled 16, which is reserved for future use.

SFC Control Plane Ports

Each TXP-CIP contains five 10-Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ ports labeled SFC CTRL PLANE XGE0 through XGE4.

Note

These ports are reserved for future use.

TXP-CIP Alarm Relay Contacts

Each TXP-CIP has two alarm relay contacts—labeled RED ALARM and YELLOW ALARM (see Figure 1), located on the bottom of the TXP-CIP. You can connect the TX Matrix Plus router to external alarm-reporting devices by attaching wires to the alarm relay contacts.

Note

If your TX Matrix Plus router contains two host subsystems, we recommend that you connect each relay contact on each TXP-CIP to a separate reporting device.

The terminal blocks that plug into the alarm relay contacts are supplied with the TX Matrix Plus router. They accept wire of any gauge between 28-AWG and 14-AWG (0.08 and 2.08 mm2), which is not provided. Use the wire gauge appropriate for the external device you are connecting.

Whenever a system condition triggers either the red or yellow alarm on the craft interface, the corresponding alarm relay contacts are also activated. The alarms on the TXP-CIP in slot CIP0 correspond to the Routing Engines installed into the TXP-CB in slot CB0. The alarms on the TXP-CIP in slot CIP1 correspond to the Routing Engines installed into the TXP-CB in slot CB1.
