Software release

Junos OS Release 19.1R1 and later

Note: It is not possible to purchase a license that will enable you to upgrade from the MPC10E-10C-MRATE to the MPC10E-15C-MRATE.

Description

  • Weight: 20.4 lb (9.25 Kg)

  • Model number: MPC10E-15C-MRATE

  • Name in the CLI: MPC10E 3D MRATE-15xQSFPP

Hardware features

  • Fixed-configuration MPC with 10-Gbps, 40-Gbps, and 100-Gbps port speeds.

  • Line-rate throughput of up to 1.5 Tbps on MX240, MX480, and MX960 5G Universal Routing Platforms when installed with an enhanced midplane. If you are running Junos OS Release 19.1R1, you must have an enhanced midplane installed.

    Note: In the CLI, when you run the show chassis hardware command, the midplane description will say Enhanced <platform> Backplane.

  • Line-rate throughput of up to 800 Gbps on MX240, MX480, and MX960 5G Universal Routing Platforms when installed with a standard midplane. Support for the standard midplane starts in Junos OS Release 19.2R1.

    Note: In the CLI when you run the show chassis hardware command, the midplane description will say <platform> Backplane.

  • Contains the following port types:

    • QSFP28 ports—Port numbers 0/0 through 0/3, 1/0 through 1/3, and 2/0 through 2/3 (10-Gbps, 40-Gbps, and 100-Gbps port speeds supported).

    • QSFP56-DD ports—Port numbers 0/4, 1/4, and 2/4 (10-Gbps, 40-Gbps, and 100-Gbps port speeds supported).

  • The Processor Mezzanine Board (PMB) consists of a 1.6-GHz Intel Broadwell 8-core CPU, 100-GB SATA SSD, and two 16-GB ECC DDR4 DRAM modules.

  • Three Packet Forwarding Engines, each providing a maximum bandwidth of 500 Gbps.

  • Juniper Penta silicon for increased scaling for bandwidth, subscribers, and services.

  • Supports maximum transmission units (MTUs) from 256 bytes through 16,000 bytes for transit traffic, and from 256 bytes through 9500 bytes for host-bound packets.

  • To achieve maximum line-rate performance, the MPC’s fabric redundancy mode must be configured in increased bandwidth mode.

  • To achieve maximum performance, the following number of SCBE3-MX switch control boards must be installed in the system:

    • MX960—3 SCBE3-MX

    • MX240 and MX480—2 SCBE3-MX

  • Requires high-capacity power supplies and high-capacity fan trays used in MX Series routers.

  • On MX960 routers, the MPC10E-15C-MRATE is not supported in the line-card slots numbered 0, 1, and 11.

Software features

For more information about features supported on MPC10E, see Protocols and Applications Supported by the MPC10E.

Power requirements

The power numbers are measured using the following configuration:

  • IPv4 forwarding with 200-bytes packet size.

  • Line-rate traffic on all ports for 1.5 Tbps aggregate bandwidth.

  • All 15 ports are configured for 100-Gigabet Ethernet, with QSFP28 LR4 transceivers installed on all ports.

At different temperatures:

  • 104° F (40° C): 785 W

  • 77° F (25° C): 720 W

LEDs

OK/FAIL LED, one bicolor:

  • Green—MPC is functioning normally.

  • Red—MPC has failed.

Port LED:

  • Off—Port link is down with loss of signal.

  • Green—Port link is up with no alarms or failures.

  • Amber—Port link is down with alarms. Or the port has been administratively disabled through the CLI.

  • Red—A transceiver on the port is experiencing a fault.

Lane LED:

There are four Lane LEDs, which are shared by the network ports. The lane LEDs work with the Junos OS software to determine which port the Lane LEDs are displaying the status for.

The Lane LEDs are used for the following configurations:

  • When a network port is configured for 4 x 10-Gigabit Ethernet channelized interfaces with a breakout cable.

  • When a network port is configured for 4 x 25-Gigabit Ethernet channelized interfaces with a breakout cable.

See MPC and MIC Lane LED Scheme Overview for more details.

Cables and connectors

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 MX Series Supported Transceivers.

Note: Starting in Junos OS Release 19.3R1, the MPC10E-15C-MRATE supports 25-Gbps port speeds when the network port is configured for 4 x 25-Gigabit Ethernet channelized interfaces with a breakout cable. This configuration is only supported up to an ambient temperature of 104° F (40° C).

When operating the MPC10E-15C-MRATE in ambient temperatures above 104° F (40° C), only the following transceivers are supported:

  • QSFP-100G-CWDM4-ET

  • QSFP-100G-LR4-ET
