PTX10000 Routing and Control Board Components and Descriptions

 

The PTX10008 and PTX10016 host subsystem comprises the Routing and Control Board (RCB). The RCB is an integrated board and a single FRU that provides Routing Engine (RE) and Control Board (CB) functionality. The RE performs all route-processing functions, whereas the CB performs chassis control and management plane functionality. The RCB provides control plane functions. You can install one or two RCBs on the router. Each RCB functions as a unit.

PTX10000 Routing and Control Board Description

The PTX10000 Routing and Control Board (RCB) is responsible for system management in a PTX10008 or a PTX10016 router (see Figure 1). The chassis can run with one or two RCBs. The base configurations ship with one RCB that can be expanded with a second RCB for a fully-redundant system. When two RCBs are installed, one functions as the master and the second as a backup. If the master RCB is removed, the backup becomes the master if GRES is configured.

PTX10008 and PTX10016 routers support the following Routing Engines:

  • JNP10K-RE0

  • JNP10K-RE1

  • JNP10K-RE1-LT

  • JNP10K-RE1-128G

Routing and Control Board Functions

The Routing and Control Board integrates the control plane and Routing Engine functions into a single management unit. Each RCB provides all the functions needed to manage the operation of the modular chassis:

  • System control functions such as environmental monitoring

  • Routing Layer 2 and Layer 3 protocols

  • Communication to all components such as line cards, Switch Interface Boards (SIBs), and power and cooling

  • Transparent clocking

  • Alarm and logging functions

Routing and Control Board Components

Each RCB consists of the following internal components:

  • Quad-core 2.5 GHz CPU

  • 32 gigabytes SDRAM

  • SATA SSD

Other standard interfaces are shown in Figure 3.

PTX10000 Routing and Control Board LEDs

The PTX10000 Routing and Control Boards (RCBs) have four types of LED indicators (see Figure 5).

PTX10000 Management Port LEDs

The two management ports on the RCB of a PTX10008 router and a PTX10016 router have LEDs that indicate link status and link activity. These two ports, located on the RCB panel between the clocking connections and the USB port, are both labeled MGMT. The left management port is for 10/100/1000 BASE-T connections, and the right port is for 10/100/1000 BASE-T and small form-factor pluggable (SFP) 1000 BASE-X connections (see Figure 8). The copper (RJ-45) port has separate LEDs for status and activity. The fiber (SFP) port has a combination link and activity LED.
