Software release

  • Junos OS Release 15.1F5 with Junos Continuity

  • Junos OS release 16.1R1 and later

For information about which MPCs support this MIC, see MIC/MPC Compatibility. For information about which MICs are supported on MX Series routers, see MICs Supported by MX Series Routers.

Description

  • Twelve Gigabit Ethernet ports that support quad small form-factor pluggable plus (QSFP+) transceivers

  • Power requirement;

    • When installed into MPC8E: 1.250 A @ 48 V (60 W)

    • When installed into MPC9E, or into MPC8E operating in 1.6 Tbps upgrade mode (licensed feature): 1.771 A @ 48 V (85 W)

  • Weight: 3.9 lb (1.77 kg)

  • Model number: MIC-MRATE

  • Name in the CLI: MRATE-12xQSFPP-XGE-XLGE-CGE

Hardware features

  • The ports are numbered 0 through 11.

  • Twelve Gigabit Ethernet QSFP+ ports, each of which can be configured as a 40-Gigabit Ethernet port or as four 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports by using a breakout cable.

  • Eight out of the twelve ports can be configured as 100-Gigabit Ethernet ports. Port numbers 0 through 3, and 6 through 9 are the eight 100-Gigabit Ethernet ports.

  • When used in MX2K-MP8CE:

    • 4 ports out of the total 12 support 100-Gigabit Ethernet speed

    • Maximum aggregate port capacity across ports 0 through 5 should not exceed 240 Gbps

    • Maximum aggregate port capacity across ports 6 through 11 should not exceed 240 Gbps

  • When used in MX2K-MPC9E:

    • 8 ports out of the total 12 support 100-Gigabit Ethernet speed

    • Maximum aggregate port capacity across ports 0 through 5 should not exceed 400 Gbps

    • Maximum aggregate port capacity across ports 6 through 11 should not exceed 400 Gbps

Table 1 lists the configurable Gbps Ethernet port speeds for each port.

Software features

  • Supports rate selectability at the port level.

  • By default, the ports are configured as 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports.

  • Supports remote port identification.

Cables and connectors

Tip: You can use the Hardware Compatibility Tool to find information about the pluggable transceivers supported on your Juniper Networks device.

The list of supported transceivers for the MX Series is located at https://pathfinder.juniper.net/hct/category/#catKey=100001&modelType;=All&pf;=MX+Series.

LEDs

  • OK/FAIL LED, one bicolor:

    • Steady green—MIC is functioning normally.

    • Yellow—MIC has failed.

  • Link LED, one green per port (4 per QSFP+ cage):

    • Steady green—Link is up.

    • Off—Link is down or disabled.

    Each QSFP+ cage contains four LEDs, logically numbered from 0 through 3. These numbers help you identify the corresponding cable when a breakout cable (4x10 Gigabit) is connected to a port. On an installed MRATE MIC, the orientation of these LEDs is as follows: upper left 0, upper right 1, lower left 2, and lower right 3.
