    Installing an SRX5400 Services Gateway Transceiver

    Transceivers that are installed in an MIC or SPC. Transceivers are hot-insertable and hot-removable. Removing a transceiver does not interrupt the functioning of the card, but the removed transceiver no longer receives or transmits data.

    Note: We strongly recommend the use of Juniper Networks transceivers. We cannot guarantee correct operation if other transceivers are used. The transceiver type can be different in each port, as long as a supported part number is used.

    To install a transceiver:

    1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
    2. Take each transceiver to be installed out of its electrostatic bag and identify the slot on the component where it will be installed.
    3. Verify that each transceiver is covered by a rubber safety cap. If it is not, cover the transceiver with a safety cap.
    4. Carefully align the transceiver with the slots in the component. The connectors should face the component.
    5. Slide the transceiver until the connector is seated in the component slot. If you are unable to fully insert the transceiver, make sure the connector is facing the right way.
    6. Close the ejector handle of the transceiver.
    7. Remove the rubber safety cap from the transceiver and the end of the cable. Insert the cable into the transceiver.
    8. Verify that the status LEDs on the component faceplate indicate that the transceiver is functioning correctly.
