    Maintaining M40e FPCs


    Verify the condition of the FPCs.


    The router can have up to eight Flexible PIC Concentrators (FPCs) mounted vertically in the FPC card cage at the front of the chassis, as shown in M40e Chassis Description. To maintain FPCs, regularly:

    • Check the LCD on the craft interface and the LEDs on the craft interface directly above each FPC slot. The green LED labeled OK lights steadily when an FPC is functioning normally. For more information, see FPC LEDs and Controls on the M40e Craft Interface.
    • Issue the CLI show chassis fpc command to check the status of installed FPCs. As shown in the sample output, the value Online in the column labeled State indicates that the FPC is functioning normally:
