MX2008 Interface Modules

 

MX2000 Adapter Card (ADC) Description

The MX2000 routers are compatible with all Trio-based MPC line cards; However, because the MX2000 routers use a newer-generation Switch Fabric Board (SFB) with faster bandwidth, smaller form-factor MPCs must use a special Line Card Adapter (ADC). The ADC is merely a shell that accepts line cards in the front and converts power and switch fabric in the rear. ADCs install vertically in the front of the router.

The following MPCs require an ADC:

  • MPC1E

  • MPC2E

  • MPC3E

  • MPC5E

  • MPC7E

Note

When a slot is not occupied by a combined ADC and MPC, you must insert a blank panel to fill the empty slot and ensure proper cooling of the system.

ADCs are hot-removable and hot-insertable. Figure 1 shows the ADC supported on MX2000 routers.

MX2008 Modular Port Concentrator Description

The Modular Port Concentrators (MPCs) provide packet forwarding services. An MPC installs into an adapter card, which in turn connects to the backplane. Modular Interface Cards (MICs) provide the physical interfaces and install into the MPCs. The user can install up to two MICs of different media types on the same MPC as long as the MPC supports those MICs.

An adapter card is required only for those MPCs that support adapter card. Not all the MPCs require an adapter card.

Note

The MX2008 router also supports fixed-port MPCs.

MICs receive incoming packets from the network and transmit outgoing packets to the network. During this process, each MIC performs framing and high-speed signaling for its media type. Each MPC is equipped with up to four Junos Trio chipsets, which perform control functions tailored to the MPC’s media type.

The MX2008 router supports up to 10 MPCs. For power requirements, see Calculating AC Power Requirements for MX2008 Routers and Calculating DC Power Requirements for MX2008 Routers.

The router has 10 dedicated line-card slots for MPCs. MPCs install vertically in the front of the router. The dedicated slots are numbered 0 though 9 (left to right). An MPC can be installed in any line-card slot. The user can install any combination of MPC types in the router.

When an MPC slot is not occupied by an MPC or an adapter card with MPC, a blank MPC panel needs to be installed.

MPCs are hot-removable and hot-insertable. When the user installs an MPC in an operating router, the RCB downloads the MPC software, the MPC runs its diagnostics, and enables the Packet Forwarding Engines housed on the MPC. Forwarding on other MPCs continues uninterrupted during this process.

Figure 2 shows a typical MPC supported on the MX2008 router. Figure 3 shows an MPC installed vertically in the MX2008 router. For more information about MPCs, see the MX Series Interface Module Reference.

MPC Components

Each MPC consists of the following components:

  • MIC card carrier, which includes two MIC slots (excludes the fixed-configuration MPC).

  • Fabric interfaces.

  • Two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces that allow control information, route information, and statistics to be sent between the Routing Engine and the CPU on the MPCs.

  • Up to four Junos Trio chipsets, which perform control functions tailored to the MPC’s media type.

  • Backplane connectors and power circuitry.

  • Online button located on the craft interface, which takes the MPC online or offline when pressed.

  • OK/FAIL LED on the MPC faceplate. For more information about LEDs on the MPC faceplate, see the MX Series Interface Module Reference.

MX2008 Modular Port Concentrator LEDs

One bicolor LED located on the craft interface above the MPC, displays the status of the MPC. For more information about the MPC LEDs on the craft interface, see MX2008 Component LEDs on the Craft Interface.

Each MPC also has LEDs located on the faceplate. For more information about LEDs on the MPC faceplate, see the “LEDs” section for each MPC in the MX Series Interface Module Reference.

MX2008 MPC Terminology

Regardless of whether you are holding an MPC vertically or horizontally, this information uses the same terms for all four edges of the MPC (see Figure 4):

  • Faceplate—Edge of the MPC that has connectors into which you insert the SFP or XFP transceivers

  • Connector edge—Edge opposite the faceplate; this edge has the connectors that attach to the midplane

  • Top edge—Edge at the top of the MPC when it is vertical

  • Bottom edge—Edge at the bottom of the MPC when it is vertical

Figure 4: MPC Edges
MPC Edges

MX2008 Modular Interface Card Description

The Modular Interface Cards (MICs) install into the Modular Port Concentrators (MPCs) and provide the physical connections to various network media types. MICs allow different physical interfaces to be supported on a single MPC. You can install MICs of different media types on the same MPC as long as the MPC supports those MICs.

MICs receive incoming packets from the network and transmit outgoing packets to the network. During this process, each MIC performs framing and high-speed signaling for its media type.

MICs are hot-removable and hot-insertable. The user can install up to two MICs in each MPC.

MX2008 Modular Interface Card LEDs

Each MIC has LEDs located on the faceplate. For more information about LEDs on the MIC faceplate, see the “LEDs” section for each MIC in the MX Series Interface Module Reference.

MX2008 Ports and Interfaces

In the physical part of the interface name, a hyphen (-) separates the media type from the MPC number (represented as an FPC in the CLI), and a slash (/) separates the logical PIC and port numbers:

type-fpc/pic/port

  • type—Media type, which identifies the network device. For example:

    • ge—Gigabit Ethernet interface

    • so—SONET/SDH interface

    • xe—10-Gigabit Ethernet interface

    For a complete list of media types, see Interface Naming Overview.

  • fpc—Slot in which the MPC is installed. On the MX2008 router, the MPCs are represented in the CLI as FPC 0 through FPC 9.

  • pic—Logical PIC on the MIC. The number of logical PICs varies depending on the type of MIC.

  • port—Port number.

Note

The MIC number is not included in the interface name.

The MX2008 supports up to ten MPCs that install vertically and are numbered from left to right.

The following sample CLI output displays an MPC (MPCE Type 2 3D) installed in MPC slot 9.

user@host> show chassis hardware

There is one MIC MRATE (MRATE-12xQSFPP-XGE-XLGE-CGE) installed into the MPC, MIC 0 (top slot), and one MIC MRATE (MRATE-12xQSFPP-XGE-XLGE-CGE) installed into the MPC, MIC 1 (bottom slot). Each MIC is logically divided into two PICs in the CLI.

The port numbers on the MICs correspond to the port number in the interface. See the MX Series Interface Module Reference for more information about specific MICs.

The sample show interfaces terse command below shows the MIC interfaces details.
