Configuring Chassis-Specific Features on a Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Plus Router

You can configure chassis-specific features on specific T1600 routers in a routing matrix with a TX Matrix Plus router:

Configuring PIC-Specific Features on a T1600 Router in a Routing Matrix

You can configure PIC-specific features, such as SONET/SDH framing, on specific T1600 routers in a routing matrix with a TX Matrix Plus router. To configure, include the lcc lcc-number statement at the [edit chassis] hierarchy level and specify the PIC-specific feature to configure.

[edit]chassis {lcc lcc-number {fpc slot-number { # Use the T1600 router FPC hardware slot number.pic pic-number {...pic-specific-configuration...}}}}

Note: When you include statements at the [edit chassis lcc lcc-number] hierarchy level, specify the actual FPC hardware slot number as labeled on the T1600 router chassis. Do not specify the corresponding global FPC number (0 through 31). Global FPC numbering, described in Global FPC Numbering for Interfaces in a Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Plus Router and in Displaying Chassis Physical Locations for a Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Plus Router, is used to specify the interface in a routing matrix.

Configuring an Alarm to Trigger if an LCC in the Routing Matrix Does Not Come Online

By default, the JUNOS Software allows all T1600 routers in the routing matrix to come online. Optionally, you can configure the TX Matrix Plus router to generate an alarm if the T1600 routers in the routing matrix do not come online.

To configure, include the online-expected statement at the [edit chassis lcc lcc-number] hierarchy level on the TX Matrix Plus router:

[edit]chassis{lcc lcc-number {online-expected;}}

If you do not include the online-expected statement at any [edit chassis lcc lcc-number] hierarchy level on the TX Matrix Plus router, no alarm triggers if any T1600 fails to come online.

Configuring an LCC in the Routing Matrix to Stay Offline

If you do not want a T1600 router to be part of the routing matrix, such as while you are performing maintenance on that LCC, you can configure the router to be offline.

To configure a T1600 router to be offline, include the offline statement at the [edit chassis lcc lcc-number] hierarchy level:

[edit]chassis {lcc lcc-number {offline;}}

When you are ready to bring the T1600 router back online, delete the offline configuration statement at the [edit chassis lcc number] hierarchy level.

Note: If you do not include the offline statement at any [edit chassis lcc lcc-number] hierarchy level on the TX Matrix Plus router, any T1600 router that is part of the routing matrix is allowed to come online.
