16-Port Gigabit Ethernet XPIM Overview

 

The 16-Port Gigabit Ethernet XPIM is a double-high, single-wide LAN switch Gigabit-Backplane Physical Interface Module (GPIM) that uses two standard slots vertically. It is available with or without Power over Ethernet (PoE) support. The PoE GPIMs provide ports that supply electric power over the same ports that are used to connect network devices. For more information about PoE, see Power over Ethernet Support on SRX Series Services Gateway Interfaces.

The 16-Port Gigabit Ethernet XPIM must be installed in one of the following 20-Gigabit slots on the services gateway:

  • SRX550—Slot 3 or 6

    Note

    The 16-Port Gigabit Ethernet XPIM is supported on both slot 3 and slot 6 of the SRX550 Services Gateway. However, the performance (bandwidth) in slot 3 will be limited as it has a 10G back link.

  • SRX650—Slot 2 or 6

Note

Only the SRX650 Services Gateway supports hot-swappable functionality for GPIMs. The SRX550 Services Gateway does not support hot-swappable functionality for GPIMs.

The earliest supported release on the 16-Port Gigabit Ethernet XPIM is Junos OS Release 9.5.
