    MX Series PICs

    MX Series PIC Overview

    PICs provide the physical connection to various network media types. The PICs are inserted into a slot in a router. You can install PICs of different media types on the same router as long as the router supports those PICs.

    PICs receive incoming packets from the network and transmit outgoing packets to the network. During this process, each PIC performs framing and high-speed signaling for its media type. Before transmitting outgoing data packets, the PICs encapsulate the packets received. Each PIC is equipped with a media-specific ASIC that performs control functions tailored to the PIC's media type.

    Blank PICs resemble other PICs but do not provide any physical connection or activity. When a slot is not occupied by a PIC, you must insert a blank PIC to fill the empty slot and ensure proper cooling of the system.

    MX240, MX480, and MX960 3D Universal Edge Routers support 2 PICs per Flexible PIC Concentrator (FPC). The maximum number of supported PICs varies per router:

    • MX960 router—12 PICs
    • MX480 router—6 PICs
    • MX240 router—2 PICs

    High Availability Features

    High availability features include Routing Engine redundancy, graceful Routing Engine switchover (GRES), nonstop bridging, nonstop active routing, graceful restart for routing protocols, Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP), and unified in-service software upgrade (ISSU). Some high availability features are not supported by all platforms and all PICs. For more information, see theUnified ISSU System Requirements in the Junos OS High Availability Library for Routing Devices.

    FPCs Supported by MX240, MX480, and MX960 Routers

    An FPC occupies two slots when installed in an MX240, MX480, or MX960 router. The maximum number of supported FPCs varies per router:

    • MX960 router—6 FPCs
    • MX480 router—3 FPCs
    • MX240 router—1 FPC

    Table 1 lists FPCs supported by MX Series routers.

      Optical interface specifications—see SONET/SDH OC192/STM64 Optical Interface Specifications

    Note: To extend the life of the laser, when a PIC is not being actively used with any valid links, take the PIC offline until you are ready to establish a link to another device. For information about taking a PIC offline, see the request chassis pic offline command in the CLI Explorer.

    LEDs

    One tricolor LED per port:

    • Off—Not enabled
    • Green—Online with no alarms or failures
    • Yellow—Online with alarms for remote failures
    • Red—Active with a local alarm; router has detected a failure
