    Overview of Preparing to Upgrade and Integrate an Operational T1600 Router

    Note: Only the first T1600 router you integrate with the TX Matrix Plus router can be operational. During the integration of an operational T1600 router with the TX Matrix Plus router, the T1600 router continues to pass traffic until it is rebooted. The traffic interruption during the reboot is comparable to the interruption that occurs during a Junos OS major upgrade.

    To prepare to upgrade and integrate an operational T1600 router:

    1. Verify that you have the required rear fan tray and power supplies. See Hardware and Software Requirements for a T1600 Router in a Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Plus Router.
    2. Order the hardware. See Upgrade Kits for TX Matrix Plus Routers and Line-Card Chassis.

      See the T1600 Core Router Hardware Guide PDF Document.

    3. Prepare the installation site for the T1600 router.

      See Overview of Preparing the Site for a TX Matrix Plus Router and the T1600 Core Router Hardware Guide PDF Document.

    4. Review all safety guidelines and warnings for both the TX Matrix Plus router and T1600 router.

      Warning: To avoid harm to yourself or the TX Matrix Plus router as you install and maintain it, you must follow the safety procedures for working with Internet routers, as well as the guidelines and warnings for working with and near electrical equipment. However, providing an exhaustive set of guidelines for working with electrical equipment is beyond the scope of this documentation.

      See General Safety Guidelines for Juniper Networks Devices and General Safety Warnings for Juniper Networks Devices.

    5. Verify that the fiber-optic array cables have been connected to the TX Matrix Plus router.

      See Connecting the Fiber-Optic Array Cables to the TXP-F13 SIBs.

    Note: Additional T1600 routers you integrate must be offline.
