MX2000-SFB3 Switch Fabric Board Description

 

The MX2000-SFB3 Switch Fabric Board creates a highly scalable and resilient “all-active” centralized switch fabric that delivers up to 4 Tbps of full-duplex switching capacity per line card slot for MX2010 and MX2020 routers. The MX2000-SFB3 along with the MX2K-MPC11E Modular Port Concentrator provides industry-leading 100-Gigabit Ethernet and 400-Gigabit Ethernet-ready port density. Figure 1 shows the MX2000-SFB3.

MX Series Router Platform Support

  • The MX2000-SFB3 supports MX2010 and MX2020 router platforms.

Prerequisites

  • Requires at least one MX2000-SFB3 switch fabric board.

  • Requires one of the following routing engines:

    • RE-MX2000-1800X4

    • REMX2K-1800-32G

    • REMX2K-X8-128G

    • REMX2K-X8-64G

Hardware Features

The MX2000-SFB3:

  • Delivers up to 4 Tbps of full-duplex switching capacity to each MPC in an MX2010 or MX2020 router.

  • Provides up to three fabric planes per Packet Forwarding Engine.

LED

The MX2000-SFB3 has one OK/FAIL LED that indicates status as follows:

  • Green—MX2000-SFB3 is online and functioning normally (OK status).

  • Red—MX2000-SFB3 has an error or failure (FAIL status).

  • Off—MX2000-SFB3 is offline.

The port LEDs under each SFB slot on the front panel of the device chassis indicate the online/offline status. These LEDs are labeled 0 through 7.

Safety, Environmental, and Security Features

  • The MX2000-SFB3 uses 48—V power systems and meets all safety requirements for 48—V isolated spacing.

  • MX2000-SFB3 is certified as an EMI emissions Class A device.

Upgrades

  • The memory storage devices in the MX2000-SFB3 are field-upgradable (I2CS, CPLD and the Super Controller FPGA).

  • The MX2000-SFB3 does not support smooth upgrades or downgrades for SFB or SFB2 fabric cards.

MX2020 and MX2010 SFB Slots

You can install up to eight MX2000-SFB3’s in MX2020 routers and MX2010 routers. The MX2000-SFB3’s install vertically into a fabric board slot on the front of the chassis in the slots labeled 0 through 7. If any slots are empty, you must install a slot cover.

Caution: If one of the MX2000-SFB3’s fails, do not remove it until you have a replacement MX2000-SFB3 or slot cover ready to install.

MX2000-SFB3 Power Zones

MX2020 routers support two power zones. Power is provisioned for an MX2000-SFB3 fabric card from one of the two power zones, based on the SFB3 slot number. The power is provisioned from the lower power zone for the MX2000-SFB3 fabric cards in slots 0-3. Similarly, the power is provisioned from the upper power zone for the MX2000-SFB3 fabric cards in the slots 4-7.

MX2010 routers support a single power zone; Therefore, power is provisioned from the same power zone for all the MX2000-SFB3 fabric cards, regardless of the SFB3 slot number.

System Power Requirements

  • DC Input Operating Range: -72 to -40 VDC

  • Maximum Power at 40 C° (72° F) + 6000 ft. (1829 m): 540 W (MX2020); 385W (MX2010)

Supported Routing Engines

The MX2000-SFB3 supports these routing engines:

  • RE-MX2000-1800X4

  • REMX2K-1800-32G

  • REMX2K-X8-128G

  • REMX2K-X8-64G

Supported Power Distribution Modules

The MX2000-SFB3 supports these power distribution modules:

  • MX2000-PDM-AC-WYE

  • MX2000-PDM-AC-DELTA

  • MX2000-PDM-DC

  • MX2K-PDM-AC-1PH

  • MX2K-PDM-OP-AC

  • MX2K-PDM-OP-DC

Supported Power Supply Modules

The MX2000-SFB3 supports these power supply modules:

  • MX2000-PSM-AC

  • MX2000-PSM-DC

Note: With the existing power supplies, an MX2020 can support a maximum of 14 MX2K-MPC11Es (seven in the top MPC slots and seven in the bottom MPC slots) while maintaining PSM redundancy in each zone. Likewise, the MX2010 with existing power supplies can support a maximum of six MX2K-MPC11Es and maintain PSM redundancy.

Interoperabilitly with MPC Line Cards

The MX2000-SFB3 interoperates with these MPCs:

  • MX2K-MPC11E

  • MPC6E

  • MPC8E

  • MPC9E

Interoperabilitily With Other Switch Fabric Boards

All fabric board types must be MX2000-SFB3. MX2010 routers and MX2020 routers don’t support a mixed fabric board type.

MX2K-MPC11E Support

The number of MX2K-MPC11E line cards that the MX2020 and MX2010 router chassis can support varies, depending upon the ambient temperature of the chassis and the PSM redundancy. Table 1 shows the number of MX2K-MPC11E line cards that are supported on the MX2020 router with fully populated, existing PDMs and PSMs (in redundant and non-redundant modes) at 40 C° (72° F) + 6000 ft. (1829 m).

MX2000-SFB3 Fabric Planes

  • There are 24 fabric planes when eight MX2000-SFB3’s are installed.

  • All eight MX2000-SFB3’s are required to support line rate traffic on the MX2K-MPC11E line card.

  • There is 7+1 MX2000-SFB3 redundancy with MPCE6, MPCE8, and MPCE9 line cards.
