Using the JUNOS Software to Configure a T1600 Router Within a Routing Matrix

A routing matrix composed of a TX Matrix Plus router and T1600 routers supports the same chassis configuration statements as a standalone router (except ce1, ct3, mlfr-uni-nni-bundles, sparse-dlcis, and vtmapping). By including the lcc statement at the [edit chassis] hierarchy level, you configure PIC-specific features, such as framing, on specific T1600 routers. In addition, a TX Matrix Plus router has two more chassis configuration statements, online-expected and offline.

To configure a T1600 router that is connected to a TX Matrix Plus router, include the lcc statement at the [edit chassis] hierarchy level:

[edit chassis]lcc number;

number can be 0 through 3.

To configure a T1600 router within a routing matrix, include the following statements at the [edit chassis lcc number] hierarchy level:

[edit chassis lcc number]fpc slot-number { # Use the hardware FPC slot numberpic pic-number {atm-cell-relay-accumulation;atm-l2circuit-mode (cell | aal5 | trunk trunk);framing (sdh | sonet);idle-cell-format {itu-t;payload-pattern payload-pattern-byte;}max-queues-per-interface (8 | 4);no-concatenate;}offline;online-expected;q-pic-large-buffer {large-scale;}

Note: For the FPC slot number, specify the actual hardware slot number (numbered 0 through 7) as labeled on the T1600 router chassis. Do not use the corresponding software FPC number shown in the TX Matrix Plus Router Chassis and Interface Names.

For information about how to configure the online-expected and offline configuration statements, see Configuring the JUNOS Software to Enable the TX Matrix Plus Router to Generate an Alarm If a T1600 Router Stays Offline.
