TX Matrix Plus Host Subsystem Description


The host subsystem provides the routing and system management functions of the TX Matrix Plus router. You can install one or two host subsystems on the TX Matrix Plus router. A host subsystem consists of a Routing Engine installed directly into a slot in a Control Board. To operate, each host subsystem functions as a unit; the Routing Engine requires the corresponding Control Board, and vice versa.


We recommend that you install two host subsystems for redundant protection. If you install only one host subsystem, we recommend that you install it in slot CB0.
