PTX10000 Chassis

 

The PTX10000 chassis houses the hardware components. The chassis components include the fan trays, optional cable management system, and the status LED panel.

PTX10000 Field-Replaceable Units

Field-replaceable units (FRUs) are router components that you can replace at your site. The router uses these types of FRUs:

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

  • Hot-pluggable—You can remove and replace these components without powering off the router, but the routing function is interrupted until you replace the component.

Table 1 lists the FRUs and their types for the PTX10000 routers.

Hot-insertable and hot-removable.

Routing and Control Board (RCB)

Redundant configuration:

  • Master RCB is hot-pluggable.

  • Backup RCB is hot-insertable and hot-removable.

Base configuration:

  • Removal of the RCB causes the router to shut down. You can install a replacement RCB in the second slot. The system restarts to elect a master and backup. If necessary, you can switch the master and backup using the request chassis routing-engine master switch command.

See PTX10008 Components and Configurations and PTX10016 Components and Configurations.

Switch Interface Boards (SIBs)

SIBs are hot-insertable and hot-removable. We recommend that you take SIBs offline before removing them to avoid traffic loss while the router fabric is being reconfigured. For example:

user@router> request chassis sib (offline | online) slot slot-number offline

Line cards

Hot-insertable and hot-removable. We recommend that you take line cards offline before removing them. For example:

user@router> request chassis fpc slot slot-number offline

Optical transceivers

See PTX10000 Optical Transceiver and Cable Support for the Junos OS release in which the transceivers were introduced.

Hot-insertable and hot-removable.

Note

Line cards are not part of the base or redundant configuration. You must order them separately.

Note

If you have a Juniper Care service contract, register any addition, change, or upgrade of hardware components at https://www.juniper.net/customers/support/tools/updateinstallbase/. Failure to do so can result in significant delays if you need replacement parts. This note does not apply if you replace an existing component with the same type of component.

PTX10000 Status Panel LEDs

The status panel of the PTX10008 and PTX10016 has two purposes:

  • Shows the overall status of the chassis

  • Indicates the type of power bus internal to the chassis

Some chassis ship with an enhanced power bus to support the power needs of higher wattage line cards.

The status panel indicates the chassis status through a set of five bi-color LEDs. See Figure 1 for a chassis status panel with the original power bus.

Figure 1: Status Panel
Status Panel

Other chassis also have the same set of five bi-color LEDs, but also have an azure blue line to indicate the enhanced power bus (see Figure 2).

Table 2 describes the status panel LEDs.

PTX10000 Optional Equipment

The PTX10000 line of modular chassis routers supports the cable management system as an optional equipment:

PTX10000 Cable Management System

The PTX10000 cable management system (see Figure 3) enables you to route optical cables away from the line card ports for better airflow through the chassis. Using this optional system also makes it easier to use cable ties or strips to organize the cabling.

Figure 3: PTX10000 Cable Management System
PTX10000 Cable Management
System

The cable management system is comprised of a set of handle extensions and a tray that snaps to the extensions (see Figure 4) for an individual line card. The handle extensions can be used with or without the cable tray. It is not necessary to remove the handle extensions if you want to remove a line card.

Cables are draped across or under the handle extensions and then secured with cable wraps (see Figure 5).
