Preparing to Upgrade an Operational Standalone Router and Integrate it into a TX Matrix Plus Routing Matrix with 3D SIBs

 

This topic describes what you must do to prepare to upgrade and integrate your operational T640, T1600, or T4000 router into a TX Matrix Plus routing matrix with 3D SIBs. Only one operational T640, T1600, or T4000 router can be integrated into a TX Matrix Plus routing matrix with 3D SIBs. If you plan to later attach additional LCCs, they must be integrated into the TX Matrix Plus routing matrix while they are powered off. The operational standalone router must be the only line-card chassis (LCC) attached to the TX Matrix Plus switch-fabric chassis (SFC) during this procedure.

Note

During the integration of an operational standalone router with the routing matrix, the standalone router continues to pass traffic until it is rebooted. The traffic interruption during the reboot is comparable to the interruption that occurs during a Junos OS major upgrade.

Note

This topic does not describe the preparation required to upgrade an operational TX Matrix Plus routing matrix to 3D SIBs. See Preparing to Upgrade an Operational TX Matrix Plus Routing Matrix to 3D SIBs for more information.

To prepare to upgrade and integrate an operational standalone router into a TX Matrix Plus routing matrix with 3D SIBs:

  • Verify that you have the required hardware:

    • Routing Engines and Control Boards—The required Routing Engine model is RE-DUO-C1800-8G or RE-DUO-C1800-16G. The required Control Board model is LCC-CB.

    • LCC upgrade kit—You must order an upgrade kit for each router that you plan to upgrade, or order all the required hardware separately. See Line-Card Chassis Component Overview for information about the required hardware, and Upgrade Kits for TX Matrix Plus Routers and Line-Card Chassis for information about the hardware included in the upgrade kits.

      Note

      To complete the upgrade of a T640 standalone router to a T1600 or T4000 LCC, additional hardware and site preparation might be required. The operational upgrade procedure does not describe installing a new craft interface, applying a new agency label, or the site preparation required for new DC power supplies. See Overview of Upgrading a T640 Router to a T1600 Router for more information.

    • Cable management system—You can optionally order a new LCC rear cable management system (CBL-MGR-TXP-3D-LCC) for each LCC to organize the cables.

    • Required cables and transceivers to connect the SIBs—You can use either active optical cables (AOCs), which have integrated transceivers, or CXP transceivers and CXP cables. See Switching Plane Connections Between TXP-F13-3D SIBs and TXP-LCC-3D SIBs for information about the required connections.

    • Two straight-through Category 5 Ethernet cables to interconnect the TXP-CIP on the SFC and LCC-CB Control Boards on the LCC.

    • Additional DC power cables to connect the six-input DC power supplies, if the power supplies are being upgraded.

  • Install and power on an SFC with 3D SIBs. Ensure that the configuration size (CONFIG SIZE) of the SFC is set to 3. See Overview of Installing a TX Matrix Plus Router and Verifying the Configuration Size and Switch-Fabric Chassis Number Settings for more information.

  • Review all safety guidelines and warnings for both the SFC and T640, T1600, or T4000 router.

    Warning

    To avoid harm to yourself or the TX Matrix Plus routing matrix as you install and maintain it, you must follow the safety procedures for working with Internet routers, as well as the guidelines and warnings for working with and near electrical equipment. However, providing an exhaustive set of guidelines for working with electrical equipment is beyond the scope of this documentation.
