Expansion Module for the PTX10001


The PTX10001 has one bay on the port panel for an optional expansion module. For instructions on replacing an expansion module, see Maintaining a PTX10001 Expansion Module.

The PTX10001 supports the JNP10001-16C-PIC expansion module.


The JNP10001-16C-PIC expansion module provides 16 additional QSFP28 ports. The QSFP28 ports support 10-Gbps, 40-Gbps, and 100-Gbps port speeds.

Figure 1 shows the JNP10001-16C-PIC ports and LEDs.

The JNP10001-16C-PIC network ports support:

  • 100 Gbps QSFP28 transceivers

  • 40 Gbps QSFP+ transceivers

  • 100 Gbps active optical cables (AOC)

  • 40 Gbps AOC

  • QSFP28 direct attach copper (DAC) cables

  • QSFP+ DAC cables

  • QSFP+ direct attach copper break out (DACBO) cables

  • QSFP28 DACBO cables


  • Weight: 3.2 lb (1.45 kg)

  • Power requirement: 200 W

  • Name in the CLI: 16xQSFP28 Macsec TIC

Hardware features

  • Sixteen 100-Gigabit Ethernet ports that support quad small form-factor pluggable (QSFP28) transceivers

  • The ports are numbered 0 through 15.

  • Each port can be configured as a 100-Gigabit Ethernet port, 40-Gigabit Ethernet port, or as four 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports (by using a breakout cable).

Software features

  • Supports rate selectability at the port level.

  • By default, the ports are configured as 100-Gigabit Ethernet ports.

  • Supports remote port identification.

  • Supports Media Access Control Security (MACsec)

Cables and connectors

Tip: You can use the Hardware Compatibility Tool to find information about the pluggable transceivers supported on your Juniper Networks device.


  • OK/FAIL LED, one bicolor:

    • OFF—The expansion module is offline.

    • Green—The expansion module is online.

    • Red—The expansion module is in a power failure state.

  • Port LED:

    • Off—Link is not plugged in.

    • Green—Link is up.

    • Amber—Link is down due to loss of signal or it is configured down.

    • Red—Link is down.

  • Lane LEDs:

    • Off—No demand for diagnosis or the lane number does not apply to the selected port.

    • Green—Lane is up.

    • Amber—Link is down due to loss of signal or it is configured down.

    • Red—Link is down.
