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

Description

  • 40 autonegotiating 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, or 1000BASE-T Megabit Ethernet ports

  • Power requirement: 0.85 A @ 48 V (41 W)

  • Weight: 1.9 lb (0.9 kg)

  • Model number: MIC-3D-40GE-TX

  • Name in the CLI: 3D 40GE TX

Hardware features

  • Dual-wide MIC that installs into 2 slots.

    For information on how to install dual-wide MICs, see the Installing Dual-Wide MIC topic in the respective MX Series Router Hardware Guide.

  • High-performance throughput on each port at speeds of 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, or 1000 Mbps

  • Up to 40-Gbps of full-duplex traffic

  • Autonegotiation between Gigabit Ethernet circuit partners

  • Maximum transmission units (MTUs) of up to 9192 bytes

Software features

  • Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) support

  • IEEE 802.1Q virtual LANs (VLANs) support

  • Remote monitoring (RMON) EtherStats

  • Source MAC learning

  • MAC accounting and policing—Dynamic local address learning of source MAC addresses

  • Flexible Ethernet encapsulation

  • Multiple tag protocol identifiers (TPID)

Interfaces

Syntax: ge-fpc/pic/port where:

  • fpc: Slot in the router where the MPC is installed.

  • pic: The ports on the MPC are divided into four logical PICs numbered 0, 1, 2, and 3.

  • port: 0 through 9

For example, ge-2/3/0 is the interface for port 0 in logical PIC 3 on the MPC installed in slot 2.

Figure 2, Figure 3, and Figure 4 illustrate the port numbering for the Tri-Rate MIC installed in the MX960, MX480, and MX240, respectively.

Cables and connectors

  • Connector: Four-pair, Category 5 shielded twisted-pair connectivity through an RJ-45 connector

  • Pinout: MDI, MDI crossover

  • Maximum distance: 328 ft (100 m)

Caution: Do not use RJ-45 cables with strain-relief boots exceeding 1.5 mm from the bottom of the connector. Cable boots that exceed this measurement can damage the port.

LEDs

OK/fail LED, one bicolor:

  • Green—MIC is functioning normally.

  • Red—MIC has failed.

Link LED, one green per port:

  • Off—No link.

  • On steadily—Link is up.
