You can use the show version command to see the version of Junos OS for EX Series switches loaded on the switch.

Line Card Components

The EX9200-12QS line card has:

  • Twelve rate-selectable Gigabit Ethernet ports. All ports can operate at 10-Gbps and 40-Gbps speeds. The ports are configured to operate at 10-Gbps speed by default. The ports labeled 0/2, 0/5, 1/2, and 1/5 (see Figure 8) can operate at 100-Gbps speed also. You can configure the port speed by using the following command:

    user@host# set chassis fpc fpc-slot pic pic-number pic-mode pic-speed number of ports number-of-active-physical-ports
    • You can configure a port to operate at 10-Gbps speed. If you configure the ports to operate at 10-Gbps speed, each port operates as four 10-Gbps interfaces.

    • You can configure a port to operate at 40-Gbps speed and install a 40-gigabit QSFP+ transceiver in the port.

    • You can configure the ports labeled 0/2, 0/5, 1/2, and 1/5 (see Figure 8) to operate at 100-Gbps speed and install 100-gigabit QSFP+ transceivers in these ports.

  • Twelve dust covers for the ports

  • Line card LED—An LED labeled OK/FAIL, which indicates the status of the line card. See Line Card LED in an EX9200 Switch.

  • Network port LED—Four LEDs for each network port, the Link/Activity LED, which indicates the link status and activity on the port. See Network Port LEDs on Line Cards in an EX9200 Switch.

    There are four LEDs labeled 0, 1, 2, and 3 for each port (see Figure 8). If a port is configured to operate at 10-Gbps speed, four 10-Gbps interfaces are created and the LEDs labeled 0, 1, 2, and 3 for that port becomes operational. Each of these LEDs indicates the link/activity on each interface on the corresponding port. If a port is configured to operate at 40-Gbps speed, the LED labeled 0 for that port becomes operational. If the ports labeled 0/2, 0/5, 1/2, and 1/5 are configured to operate at 100-Gbps speed, the LED labeled 3 for each of these ports becomes operational.

You can find the list of transceivers supported on the EX9200-12QS line card at the Hardware Compatibility Tool page for the EX9200-12QS line card.

The ports are divided into two port groups. The six ports labeled 0/0 through 0/5 form one port group, PIC 0. The six ports labeled 1/0 through 1/5 form the other port group, PIC 1. The ports in each group share 240 gigabits of bandwidth. Thus, you can transmit up to 240 gigabits of traffic through a port group without packet drop.

EX9200-15C Line Card

The line cards in EX9200 switches combine a Packet Forwarding Engine and Ethernet interfaces in a single assembly.

Line Card Components

The line card has:

  • 32 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports, each of which can house SFP+ transceivers

  • 32 dust covers for the ports (shipped in an accessory bag)

  • Line card LED—An LED labeled OK/FAIL, which indicates the status of the line card. See Line Card LED in an EX9200 Switch.

  • LEDs for the ports—One LED on each port, the Link/Activity LED, which indicates the link status and activity on the port. See Network Port LEDs on Line Cards in an EX9200 Switch.

The ports are divided into two port groups of 16 ports each—the ports labeled 0/0 through 0/7 and 1/0 through 1/7 form one port group; the ports labeled 2/0 through 2/7 and 3/0 through 3/7 form the other port group. The ports in each group share 130 gigabits of bandwidth. Thus, you can transmit up to 130 gigabits of traffic through a port group, without packet drop.

EX9200-40T Line Card

The line cards in EX9200 switches provide packet forwarding services. They are field-replaceable units (FRUs) that you can install in the line card slots on the front of the switch chassis. Line cards are hot-insertable and hot-removable: You can remove and replace them without powering off the switch or disrupting switch functions.

Configuring Rate Selectability on an EX9200-12QS Line Card to Enable Different Port Speeds

Each of the six ports of PIC 0 and PIC 1 of an EX9200-12QS line card supports port speeds of 10 Gbps and 40 Gbps. Ports 2 and 5 of both the PICs also support port speed of 100 Gbps. Because the EX9200-12QS line card is rate-selectable, you can choose to configure all ports of each PIC to operate at the same supported speed or configure the ports of a PIC to operate at different supported speeds.

You configure rate selectability at the PIC level if you want all the ports of a PIC to operate at the same speed. That is, you can choose to configure a PIC to operate at a supported speed. For example, if you configure PIC 0 at 10-Gbps or 40-Gbps speed, all the ports of PIC 0 are enabled to operate at those speeds. If you configure PIC 0 at 100-Gbps speed, port 2 and port 5 are enabled to operate at 100-Gbps speed, and the other ports of PIC 0 are disabled.

You configure rate selectability on each port of a PIC if you want to operate different ports of the line card at different supported speeds. That is, you can configure each port to operate at a specified, supported speed.

Configuring Rate Selectability at the PIC Level

To configure rate selectability at the PIC level:

  1. In configuration mode, navigate to the [edit chassis fpc fpc-slot pic pic-number] hierarchy level.

    For example:

  2. Configure the pic-mode statement to set the operating speed for the ports of a PIC. You can choose from the options 10G, 40G, or 100G.

    For example:

  3. (Optional) You can choose to configure the number of ports that operate at the speed configured in Step 2.

    For example, to specify that six ports on PIC 0 operate at the speed specified in Step 2:

  4. Verify the configuration.
  5. Commit your configuration changes.
  6. Reset the PIC.

If the number-of-ports statement is not configured, all the ports that support the speed configured in Step 2 are enabled and the others are disabled. That is, the ports are enabled depending on whether or not they support the speed specified. Ports 0 through 5 are enabled if the speed specified is 10 Gbps or 40 Gbps; and ports 2 and 5 are enabled and the other ports of the PIC disabled if the speed specified is 100 Gbps. Table 17 lists the physical ports that are enabled when the number-of-ports statement is configured.

Configuring Rate Selectability at the Port Level

To configure rate selectability at the port level:

  1. In configuration mode, navigate to the [edit chassis fpc fpc-slot pic pic-number] hierarchy level.

    For example:

  2. To indicate the speed at which the ports operate, configure the speed statement for specific ports. The available options are 10g, 40g, and 100g.

    For example:

    Note

    All the six ports of PIC 0 and PIC 1 of an EX9200-12QS support 10-Gbps and 40-Gbps port speeds. However, only ports 2 and 5 of both the PICs support 100-Gbps speed.

  3. Verify the configuration.
  4. Commit your configuration changes.
  5. Reset the PIC.
Note

Note the following when you configure rate selectability on an EX9200-12QS line card:

  • When you boot the line card:

    • If rate selectability is not configured, all ports of the line card operate at the default speed as four 10-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces.

    • If rate selectability is configured with invalid port speeds, all ports for which invalid speeds were configured operate at the default speed.

    • If valid port speeds are configured, the ports operate at the configured speeds.

  • When you change an existing port-speed configuration, for the configuration to take effect, you must do either of the following:

    • Reset the PICs to which the configured ports belong, by using the request chassis pic pic-slot pic-slot-number fpc-slot fpc-slot-number (online | offline) command. Because resetting the line card takes several minutes and because it affects all the Packet Forwarding Engines, use this command to apply your configuration changes quickly.

    • Reset the line card

    An alarm is generated indicating the change in port-speed configuration.

  • When you change an existing port-speed configuration to an invalid port-speed configuration and commit the configuration, an alarm is generated indicating that the port-speed configuration is invalid. The port continues to operate at the existing port speed.

  • You cannot configure rate selectability at the PIC level and the port level simultaneously. Error messages are displayed when you try to commit such configurations.

  • If you configure rate selectability at the port level, logical interfaces are created only on the configured ports. No logical interfaces are created on the other ports.
