Software release

  • 1-port: Junos OS Release 8.0 and later (Type 1)

  • 2-port (Type 2):

    • Junos OS Release 6.1 and later

    • Junos OS Release 7.3 and later in T640 routers connected to a TX Matrix router

For information on which FPCs support these PICs, see T640 PIC/FPC Compatibility.


  • One or two Gigabit Ethernet ports

  • Power requirement: 0.46 A @ 48 V (22 W)

  • Fine-grained queuing per logical interface

  • Model number for 1-Port Gigabit Ethernet IQ PIC: PB-1GE-SFP-QPP

    Model number for 2-Port Gigabit Ethernet IQ PIC: PB-2GE-SFP-QPP

Hardware features

  • High-performance throughput on each port at speeds up to 1 Gbps

  • Full-duplex mode

  • Large MTUs of up to 9192 bytes

Software features

  • Optical diagnostics and related alarms (Junos OS Release 8.2 and later)

  • Quality of service (QoS) per channel: weighted round-robin (WRR), random early detection (RED), weighted random early detection (WRED)

  • Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) support

  • 802.1q virtual LANs (VLANs)

  • VLAN stacking and rewriting

  • Flexible Ethernet encapsulation

  • MAC policing, accounts, and filters

  • Junos OS Release 7.0 or later is recommended to configure graceful Routing Engine switchover (GRES).

Cables and connectors

  • You can install any transceiver supported by the PIC.

  • SFP transceivers:

    • Duplex LC/PC connector (Rx and Tx)

    • Fiber-optic transceivers:

      • 1000Base-LH (model number: SFP-1GE-LH)

      • 1000Base-LX (model number: SFP-1GE-LX)

      • 1000Base-SX (model number: SFP-1GE-SX)

      • Optical interface specifications—see the Hardware Compatibility Tool at

      1000Base-BX (model number pairs: SFP-GE10KT13R14 with SFP-GE10KT14R13, SFP-GE10KT13R15 with SFP-GE10KT15R13, SFP-GE40KT13R15 with SFP-GE40KT15R13)—see the Hardware Compatibility Tool at

  • Copper transceivers:

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

    • 1000Base-T (model number: SFP-1GE-T)

    • Copper interface specifications—see the Hardware Compatibility Tool at

Note: Do not install SONET/SDH OC48c/STM16 SFPs in the Gigabit Ethernet port. The port will not recognize the SFP.


Status LED, one tricolor:

  • Off—Not enabled.

  • Green—Online with no alarms or failures.

  • Yellow—Online with alarms for remote failures.

  • Red—Active with a local alarm; router has detected a failure.

Note: The green status LED is lit on the 2-port Gigabit Ethernet IQ PIC when at least one port is online.

Port LEDs, one per port:

  • Off—Port is down.

  • Green—Link is established.
