EX6210 Line Cards

 

Line Card Model and Version Compatibility in an EX6200 Switch

Three line cards are available for EX6200 switches. Table 1 shows the model numbers, the names of the line cards, and the Junos OS release in which the models were first supported.

Table 1: Line Card Models by Junos OS Release

Model number

Name

First Junos OS Release

EX6200-48P

48-port PoE+ line card

11.3R2

EX6200-48T

48-port RJ-45 line card

11.3R2

EX6200-48F

48-port SFP line card

13.2X50-D10

Ensure that all of the line cards in a switch are supported in the Junos OS release that you want to use.

48-Port RJ-45 Line Card in an EX6200 Switch

The line cards in EX6200 switches combine a Packet Forwarding Engine and Ethernet interfaces on a single assembly. They are field-replaceable units (FRUs) that can be installed in the line card slots on the front of the switch chassis. See Slot Numbering for an EX6210 Switch. The line cards are hot-insertable and hot-removable: You can remove and replace them without powering off the switch or disrupting switch functions. See Figure 1.

Line Card Components

The 48-port RJ-45 line card (see Figure 1) has:

  • Forty-eight 10/100/1000 Base-T Ethernet RJ-45 ports

  • Line Card LEDs—Two status LEDs labeled ON and ST on the faceplate that indicate the online and status information for the line card. See Line Card LEDs in an EX6200 Switch.

  • Network port LEDs—Two LEDs per network port that indicate the link/activity and status of each port. See Network Port LEDs in an EX6200 Switch.

48-Port PoE+ Line Card in an EX6200 Switch

The line cards in EX6200 switches combine a Packet Forwarding Engine and Ethernet interfaces on a single assembly. They are field-replaceable units (FRUs) that can be installed in the line card slots on the front of the switch chassis. See Slot Numbering for an EX6210 Switch. The line cards are hot-insertable and hot-removable: You can remove and replace them without powering off the switch or disrupting switch functions. See Figure 2.

Line Card Components

The 48-port SFP line card (see Figure 3) has:

  • Forty-eight 1-gigabit small form-factor pluggable (SFP) ports, which can house SFP transceivers

  • Line card LEDs—Two status LEDs labeled ON and ST on the faceplate that indicate the online and status information for the line card. See Line Card LEDs in an EX6200 Switch.

  • Network port LEDs—Two LEDs per network port that indicate the link activity and status of each port. See Network Port LEDs in an EX6200 Switch.

Line Card LEDs in an EX6200 Switch

The line cards in EX6200 switches have two status LEDs labeled ON and ST on the faceplate (see Figure 4, Figure 5, and Figure 6) that indicate the online and status information of the line cards.

Note

The 48-port PoE+ line card has an additional LED labeled PoE on the faceplate that indicates the PoE status of the line card (see Figure 5).
