24-Port Gigabit Ethernet XPIM Overview

 

The 24-Port Gigabit Ethernet XPIM is a double-high, double-wide LAN switch Gigabit-Backplane Physical Interface Module (GPIM) that uses two standard slots vertically and two standard slots horizontally. 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 24-Port XPIM must be installed in specific GPIM slot groupings as shown in Table 1.

The center GPIM slot bracket must be removed before installing a double-high, double-wide GPIM. See Installing a Double-High, Double-Wide Gigabit-Backplane Physical Interface Module on the SRX Series Services Gateway for details.

The earliest supported release on the 24-Port Gigabit Ethernet XPIM is Junos OS Release 9.5.

Note

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