SRX1500 Chassis

 

SRX1500 Services Gateway Chassis Overview

The SRX1500 Services Gateway chassis is a rigid sheet metal structure that houses all the other hardware components. The chassis weighs 15 lb. and measures 1.75 in. high, 17.5 in. wide, and 18.2 in. deep. The chassis installs in standard 600-mm deep (or larger) enclosed cabinets or 19-in. equipment racks.

Caution

Before removing or installing components of a functioning services gateway, 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 device.

The services gateway must be connected to earth ground during normal operation. The protective earthing terminal on the rear of the chassis is provided to connect the services gateway to ground. Additional grounding is provided to an AC-powered services gateway when you plug its power supply into a grounded AC power receptacle.

10/100/1000 Base-T ports

Twelve 10/100/1000 Base-T ports.

Top: 0/0, 0/2, 0/4, 0/6, 0/8, and 0/10

Bottom: 0/1, 0/3, 0/5, 0/7, 0/9, and 0/11

The ports have the following characteristics:

  • Use an RJ-45 connector.

  • Operate in full-duplex and half-duplex modes.

  • Support flow control.

  • Support autonegotiation.

The ports can be used to:

  • Function as front-end network ports.

  • Provide LAN and WAN connectivity to hubs, switches, local servers, and workstations.

  • Forward incoming data packets to the services gateway.

  • Receive outgoing data packets from the services gateway

2

100/1000 SFP ports

Four 1-Gigabit Ethernet small form-factor pluggable (SFP) ports for network traffic

Top: 0/12 and 0/14

Bottom: 0/13 and 0/15

3

1G/10G SFP+ ports

Four 1-Gigabit Ethernet/10-Gigabit Ethernet enhanced small form-factor pluggable (SFP+) ports for network traffic

Top: 0/16 and 0/18

Bottom: 0/17 and 0/19

4

WAN PIM slots

Two WAN PIM slots.

WAN PIMs are used to add WAN interfaces to the services gateway.

Note: The WAN PIMs are currently not available for ordering.

5

Power button

Use the Power button to shut down the services gateway. On a services gateway that has been previously shut down using the Power button, when the power button is pressed again the services gateway starts up.

6

Reset config button

Returns the services gateway to the factory-default configuration.

7

LEDs

Indicate component and system status and troubleshooting information at a glance. See Table 2.

8

Management port

Use the management (MGMT) port to connect to the device over the network.

9

Console port

  • Serial—Connects a laptop to the services gateway for CLI management. The port uses an RJ-45 serial connection, is configured as DTE, and supports the RS-232 (EIA-232) standard.

  • USB—Connects a laptop to the services gateway for CLI management through a USB interface. The port accepts a Mini-B type USB cable plug. A USB cable with Mini-B and Type A USB plugs is supplied with the services gateway. To use the mini-USB console port, you must download a USB driver to the management device from the Silicon Labs page.

10

USB port

The services gateway has one USB port that accepts a USB storage device.

11

HA control port

Dedicated Gigabit Ethernet SFP port to synchronize data and maintain state information in a chassis cluster setup.

12

ESD point

For personal safety, while working on the services gateway, use the ESD outlet to plug in an ESD grounding strap to prevent your body from sending static charges to the services gateway.

Note

For information on supported transceivers, see the Hardware Compatibility Tool. Note that the HA control port supports only the following transceivers:

  • EX-SFP-1GE-LH

  • EX-SFP-1GE-LX

  • EX-SFP-1GE-SX

  • EX-SFP-1GE-SX-ET

  • QFX-SFP-1GE-LX

  • QFX-SFP-1GE-SX

  • SRX-SFP-1GE-LH

  • SRX-SFP-1GE-LX

  • SRX-SFP-1GE-LX-ET

  • SRX-SFP-1GE-SX

  • SRX-SFP-1GE-SX-ET
