MX-SPC3 Services Card
The MX-SPC3 Services Card is supported on MX240, MX480, and
MX960 routers. It provides additional processing power to run the
Next Gen Services.
It contains two Services Processing Units (SPUs) with 128 GB of memory per SPU. Line cards such as DPCs, MICs, and MPCs intelligently distribute all traffic traversing the router to the SPUs to have services processing applied to it (see Figure 1).
You can install the MX-SPC3 in any of the slots that are not reserved for Switch Control Board (SCB). If a slot is not occupied by a card, you must install a blank panel to shield the empty slot and to allow cooling air to circulate properly through the device.
Services Processing Card (SPC) with two SPUs of 256 GB memory.
