MX2008 Chassis

 

MX2008 Chassis Description

The router chassis is a rigid sheet metal structure that houses all the other router components (see Figure 1, Figure 2, and Figure 3). The MX2008 Universal Routing Platform with standard cable managers and EMI cover measures 42  in.  (106.68 cm) high, 19  in.  (48.26 cm) wide, and 30.90  in.  (78.49 cm) deep (from the front-mounting flanges to the rear of the chassis). An extended cable manager extends the total depth to 36.82  in. (93.53 cm). The chassis can be installed in a standard 19-in.  open-frame or four-post rack, or an enclosed cabinet.

Note

There must be a minimum of 24 rack units (U) of usable rack space when installing the MX2008 router into a rack.

Note

If you are installing the MX2008 router into a network cabinet, make sure that no hardware, device, rack, or cabinet component obstructs the 24  U rack space from access during installation.

The chassis includes the following features (see Figure 1, Figure 2, and Figure 3).

  • Front-mounting flanges for mounting in a four-post rack or cabinet.

  • Center-mounting metal brackets for center-mounting in an open-frame rack (optional).

Caution

Before removing or installing components, attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) strap to an ESD point, and place the other end of the strap around your bare wrist. Failure to use an ESD strap could result in damage to the hardware components.

Warning

The router must be connected to earth ground during normal operation.

The MX2008 router is 24 rack units (U) tall. One router can be installed in an open-frame rack, four-post rack, or cabinet. The MX2008 router has 10 dedicated line-card slots, which means a maximum of 10 Modular Port Concentrators (MPCs) including adapter cards and Modular Interface Cards (MICs) can be installed on MX2008. ADCs provide housing to MPCs. The MPCs attach to the adapter cards, which in turn connect to the backplane. Up to 2 MICs can be installed in each MPC. Fully populated, the MX2008 router supports up to 20 MICs. The MX2008 host subsystem consists of two Routing and Control Boards (RCBs). The RCB is an integrated board and a single FRU that provides Routing Engine and Control Board functionality and supports virtualization. The router contains 8 SFBs that provide 7+1 redundancy.

One router can be installed in a 24  U or taller open-frame or four-post rack if the rack can support the combined weight, which can be greater than 664.8  lb (301.55 kg).

Note

The dimensions also include the cable managers and EMI cover.

MX2008 Backplane Description

The MX2008 router consist of a signal backplane and a power backplane that connect PSMs and PDMs to the chassis. The adapter cards are carrier cards used to house the MPCs. The MPCs install into the bottom card-cage signal backplanes from the front of the chassis and mate to the signal backplane to connect to the Enhanced Switch Fabric Boards (SFB2s) and the Routing and Control Boards (RCBs). The backplane connects 10 line cards to 8 SFBs and 2 RCBs. The SFBs and RCBs are installed at the top of the chassis from the front. The cooling system components also connect to the signal backplane. The PSMs install into the power backplane, and the PDMs mate to the power backplane.

The backplanes performs the following major functions:

  • Data path—Data packets are transferred across the signal backplane between the MPCs through the fabric ASICs on the SFBs.

  • Power distribution—The router PDMs relay power from the feeds to the input of the PSMs through the power backplane. In addition, the output power from PSMs is distributed to the components of the chassis (MPCs, SFBs, and RCBs), using the power backplane.

  • Control/management path—The backplanes provides management and control path connectivity among the various system components.

MX2008 Component Redundancy

A fully configured router is designed so that no single point of failure can cause the entire system to fail. Only a fully configured router provides complete redundancy. All other configurations provide partial redundancy. The following major hardware components are redundant:

  • Host subsystem—The host subsystem consists of two Routing and Control Boards (RCBs). The RCB is an integrated board and a single FRU that provides Routing Engine and Control Board functionality. The router can have one or two host subsystems. If two host subsystems are installed, one functions as the master and the other functions as the backup. If the master host subsystem (or either of its components) fails, the backup can take over as the master.

  • DC power system—The MX2008 DC power system (-48 V and 240 V China) is made up of three components: nine power supply modules (PSMs), two power distribution modules (PDMs), and a power midplane. For telecom (48 VDC) power supplies the power system distributes power from a pool of 22.5 KW (20 KW for non-redundant PSMs and 2.5 KW reserved for PSM redundancy). This pool provides power to the whole chassis including the ten line-card slots, two fan trays, and critical FRUs. These critical FRUs consist of two RCBs and eight SFBs located in the top portion of the chassis.

  • Power distribution modules (PDMs)—In the DC configuration, each system provides N+1 PSM redundancy along with N+N feed redundancy. The power feeds from different sources need to be connected to different PDMs. If feeds that connect to one PDM fail in a redundant configuration, the other feed starts to provide full power.

    Note

    Depending on the voltage of the DC feeds, power can be drawn from both feeds. The feed with higher voltage provides more power. If the difference between the voltages is sufficient, then the higher voltage feed provides all the power. When the voltages are exactly the same, equal power is drawn from both feeds.

    A total of two PDMs can be installed into a router. Each DC PDM operates with up to nine separate feeds of either 60-A or 80-A current limit. The 240 V China DC PDMs have nine feeds and do not have a switch selection. The capacity of these feeds is relayed to system software through a switch located on the DC PDM.

    The MX2008 router supports two types of three-phase power system PDMs. The three-phase delta and three-phase wye. Individual phases are taken from three-phase feeds to individual PSMs. One feed provides power to six PSMs, while the second input feed provides power to the remaining three PSMs (supporting a total of nine PSMs).

  • DC power feed redundancy—The MX2008 DC power system is feed redundant. Each PSM can be connected to two separate feeds from different sources that are used to provide feed redundancy. There are two PDMs per power subsystem that carry nine feeds each. Feeds from one power source must be connected to one PDM and feeds from the other power source must be connected to the second PDM of the power subsystem (see Figure 5).

    Figure 5: DC Power System Feed Redundancy
    DC Power System Feed
Redundancy

    Each PSM has a set of two DIP switches located on the faceplate. These DIP switches are used to indicate whether a user wants to connect one feed to the power system, two feeds, or none. These DIP switches provide critical information to the power management system to help generate alarms in case of a feed failure or a wrong connection. Each PDM has an LED per feed indicating whether the feed is active or not, or whether the feed is connected properly. See MX2008 DC Power Supply Module (-48 V) Description.

  • Universal power system—The MX2008 supports connection of a high-voltage second-generation universal (HVAC/HVDC) power system.

    High-Voltage Second-Generation Universal (HVAC/HVDC) PDMs—The universal PDM accepts either an HVAC or HVDC input. You can install a total of two PDMs into a router. Each universal PDM operates with nine feeds of a 30-A current limit. Each universal PSM is capable of delivering 3400 W of power with-dual feeds and 3000 W of power with a single-feed. In this configuration, each subsystem provides N+1 output PSM redundancy along with N+N feed redundancy. The power feeds from different sources need to be connected to different PDMs. If feeds that connect to one PDM fail in a redundant configuration, the other feed provides full power. For high-voltage second-generation universal (HVAC/HVDC) power system, both input power feeds are active and share the load when present.

    Figure 6 illustrates the power distribution from the universal (HVAC/HVDC) PDMs to the universal (HVAC/HVDC) PSMs.

    Figure 6: MX2010 Router Universal (HVAC/HVDC) Power Subsystem Feed Redundancy
    MX2010 Router Universal
(HVAC/HVDC) Power Subsystem Feed Redundancy
  • AC power system—The MX2008 supports connection of three-phase and single-phase AC power systems.

    There are two types of three-phase power systems: the three-phase delta and three-phase wye. The AC power going to the PSMs is split into three individual phases—each PSM works on a single phase. This means the power system works independent of the kind of AC feed is connected. You can connect one or two feeds, depending on the power system configuration (number of PSMs, redundancy, and so on). Each phase from each of the two feeds is distributed among one or two PSMs (one feed has each phase going to two PSMs, and the other feed has each phase going to a single PSM). See Figure 8 and Figure 9.

    The single-phase AC PDM provides an AC input power interface to the PSM through the system power midplane. Up to nine PSMs can be connected to a single-phase AC PDM. Each single-phase AC PDM accepts seven or nine AC power cords from a single-phase AC source. Each AC input is independent and feeds one PSM. See Figure 7.

    Figure 7: Power Distribution from Single-Phase Feed Delta PDM to the AC PSMs

    Figure 9: Power Distribution from Three-Phase Feed Wye PDM to the AC PSMs
    Power Distribution
from Three-Phase Feed Wye PDM to the AC PSMs

    The AC power system is feed redundant—each PSM takes in two AC feeds and uses one of the two. One AC feed is active at a time. If one feed fails, the PSM automatically switches over to the other feed without disrupting system function (see MX2008 AC Power Supply Module Description).

  • AC power requirements—Table 4 shows the MX2008 current requirements for the three-phase delta and wye power feeds.

    15 A

    Note

    This is the minimum required to provide 2.5 KW per PSM. Based on facilities guidelines, you should overprovision the MX2008 router. The two numbers listed in the current columns reflect the distribution of phases from the feed to PSM. For example, from one feed each phase goes to two PSMs and from the other feed each phase goes to only one PSM.

  • Power supply modules (PSMs)—All nine AC, DC, 240 V China, or universal HVAC/HVDC PSMs in a system share the load. If one PSM fails in a redundant configuration, the remaining eight PSMs provide power to FRUs. Up to nine PSMs might be required to supply power to a fully configured router. Nine PSMs supply power to the two RCBs (active and redundant), eight SFBs, ten MPCs, and two fan trays (active and redundant).

  • Cooling system—The cooling system has a total of two fan trays—which are controlled and monitored by the host subsystem. The fan trays are at the bottom and are used to cool RCBs, SFBs, and ten line cards. If a fan fails or the temperature rises above the temperature threshold, the speed of the remaining fans is automatically adjusted to keep the temperature within the acceptable range (see MX2008 Cooling System Description).

Note

The MX2008, MX2010, and MX2020 routers support the same power modules (AC/DC or HVAC/HVDC PSMs and PDMs).

MX2008 Field-Replaceable Units

Field-replaceable units (FRUs) are router components that can be replaced at the customer site (see Table 5). Replacing most FRUs requires minimal router downtime. The router uses the following types of FRUs:

  • Hot-removable and hot-insertable FRUs—You can remove and replace these components without powering off the router or disrupting the routing functions.

  • Hot-pluggable FRUs—You can remove and replace these components without powering off the router, but the routing functions of the system are interrupted when the component is removed.

    Note

    Before you replace most host subsystem components, such as the RCBs, you must take the host subsystem offline.

Table 5 lists the FRUs for the MX2008 router.

MX2008 Cable Manager Description

The MX2008 router supports the following cable managers:

Note

The MX2008, MX2010, and MX2020 routers support the same cable managers.

Standard Cable Manager

The standard cable manager consists of the following components:

  • Card-cage cable manager—MX2000-CBL-MID

  • Lower cable manager—MX2000-CBL-BTM-S

  • DC power cable manager—MX2000-DC-CBL-MGR-S

  • Cable manager for the DC PDM (240 V China) and the universal (HVAC/HVDC PDM)—MX2K-HV-CBL-MGR

The lower cable manager (see Figure 12) is located just below the lower card cage, has a removable cover that is secured by two captive screws with access to rows used for routing and securing the cables away from the front of the Modular Port Concentrators (MPCs) and Modular Interface Cards (MICs) (see Figure 13).
