Overview of Converting a T640 Router

 

Before you integrate a T640 router with the TX Matrix router, you must convert the T640 router by replacing certain hardware and software components.

If your T640 router is not shipped from Juniper Networks with the hardware and software components required to connect it to a TX Matrix router, you must convert the router by performing the following tasks:

  1. Upgrade the software to Junos OS release 7.0 or later.

    See Upgrading the Junos OS in a T640 Router Before Integrating the Router into a Routing Matrix.

  2. Upgrade the firmware on the FPCs.

    See Upgrading the FPC Firmware in a T640 Router Before Integrating the Router into a Routing Matrix.

  3. Replace the standard rear fan tray with a different model required to cool the chassis.

    See Upgrading the Rear Fan Tray in a T640 Router Before Integrating the Router into a Routing Matrix.

  4. Integrate the T640 router with the TX Matrix router. Note

    The procedures for integrating a T640 router, including replacing theSIBs, are different for offline (not passing traffic) and operational (passing traffic) T640 routers. When you integrate an operational T640 router with the TX Matrix router, the T640 router continues to pass traffic until it is rebooted.

    See either Overview of Integrating an Operational T640 Router with the TX Matrix Router or Overview of Integrating an Offline T640 Router with the TX Matrix Router.
