M7i Flexible PIC Concentrators (FPCs) Description


Flexible PIC Concentrators (FPCs) house the PICs that connect the router to network media (for information about PICs, see M7i PICs Description). On the M7i router, each FPC is built in (it cannot be removed from the chassis as on other M Series routers). The networking and services interfaces in the M7i router are grouped onto two logical FPCs by the router, (see Figure 1). PICs are located on FPC 0. On FPC 1 the FIC is located in slot 3 and the built-in tunnel interface is located in slot 2. If the ASM is installed on the CFEB or CFEB-E, it is located on slot 2 with the built-in tunnel interface.
