Step 1: Begin

 

In this guide, we provide a simple, three-step path, to quickly get you up and running with your new AC-powered router. We've simplified and shortened the installation and configuration steps, and included how-to videos. You'll learn how to install the PTX10016 in a rack, power it up, and configure basic settings.

Meet the PTX10016 Packet Transport Routers

The Juniper Networks® PTX10016 packet transport router is a next-generation modular router that offers ultra-high system capacity in a 21 U platform. It provides 230.4 Tbps per chassis. The PTX10016 has 16 slots for line cards, allowing for a smooth transition from 10 GbE, 40 GbE, and 100 GbE networks to 400 GbE high-performance networks.

The PTX10016 routers come with either JNP10016-SF Switch Interface Boards (SIBs) or JNP10016-SF3 SIBs. If your PTX10016 has JNP10016-SF SIBs, it will come preinstalled with Junos® operating system (Junos OS). If your PTX10016 has JNP10016-SF3 SIBs, it will come preinstalled with Junos OS Evolved.

  • Front door kit that consists of one front door, one right base bracket, one left base bracket, two interchangeable latch brackets, eight Phillips flat-head mounting screws, and side EMI deflectors

    Note

    This guide does not cover how to install the line cards or the front door. For instructions, see the PTX10016 Packet Transport Router Hardware Guide.

  • Cover panels for the empty line card slots

  • An electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap

  • Protective earthing terminal lug

What Else Do I Need?

  • A mechanical lift rated for 1000 lb (453.6 kg)

  • 20 rack mount screws appropriate for your rack to secure the mounting tray to the rack

  • 12 rack mount screws appropriate for your rack to secure the chassis to the rack

  • Number 1, 2, or 3 Phillips (+) screwdriver, depending on the size of your rack screws

  • Number 2 Phillips (+) screwdriver

  • Management host such as a laptop or desktop PC

  • Serial-to-USB adapter (if your laptop or desktop PC doesn’t have a serial port)

  • Grounding cable: 6 AWG (13.3 mm²), minimum 90° C wire, or as permitted by the local code

    Caution

    Ensure that a licensed electrician has attached the grounding lug to the grounding cable that you supply. Using a grounding cable with an incorrectly attached lug can damage the router.

Install the PTX10016 in a Four-Post Rack

Before you start the installation, be sure to review the PTX10016 Site Preparation Overview, General Safety Guidelines and Warnings, and PTX10016 Chassis Lifting Guidelines. You must install the PTX10016 router in a restricted-access location.

Let's get going and start the installation!

  1. Wrap and fasten one end of the ESD grounding strap around your bare wrist, and connect the other end to a site ESD point.Caution

    If you’re mounting multiple units on a rack, mount the heaviest unit at the bottom of the rack and mount the other units from the bottom of the rack to the top in decreasing order of the weight of the units.

  2. Attach the mounting blades to the front rack posts by using eight rack mount screws appropriate for your rack and a screwdriver.
  3. From the rear of the rack, slide the mounting tray into the rear posts of the rack such that the mounting blades slide into the grooves on the mounting tray. Attach the tray to the rear rack posts by using six rack mount screws appropriate for your rack and a screwdriver.
  4. Check that the mounting tray is level.
  5. Attach the mounting blades to the tray with the 12 Phillips 8-32 x .375 in. flat-head screws.
    Caution

    Install line cards and other components in the chassis only after you mount the chassis securely.

  6. Remove the line card slot covers by grasping the handles and pulling the covers straight out. Store the covers.
  7. Load the router onto the lift, making sure it rests securely on the lift platform.
  8. Using the lift, align the router in front of the rack, centering it in front of the mounting tray.
  9. Lift the chassis approximately 0.75 in. (1.9 cm) above the surface of the mounting tray. Align the chassis as close as possible to the mounting tray.
  10. Carefully slide the chassis onto the mounting tray until the chassis flanges contact the rack rails. The mounting blades ensure that the holes in the chassis flanges line up with the holes in the rack rails.
  11. Attach the chassis to the rack by installing 12 rack mount screws through each open flange hole and rack hole.
  12. Move the lift away from the rack.
  13. Check the alignment of the router. The mounting screws on each side of the rack should line up, and the router should be level. Tighten the screws.
  14. Insert the safety restraint between the rear posts of the rack. It should rest on the top of the chassis and align with the holes in the rack.
  15. Attach the restraint to the rack by installing six rack mount screws through each open flange hole and rack hole. Tighten the screws.

Power On

Now that you've installed your PTX10016 in the rack, you're ready to connect it to power.

  1. Wrap and fasten one end of the ESD grounding strap around your bare wrist, and connect the other end of the strap to a site ESD point.
  2. Connect one end of the grounding cable to a proper earth ground, such as the rack.
  3. Remove the two screws over the two-hole protective earthing terminal at the rear of the chassis.
  4. Place the grounding lug attached to the grounding cable over the two-hole protective earthing terminal.
  5. Secure the grounding lug to the protective earthing terminal using the screws you removed in step 3.
  6. Dress the grounding cable. Be sure that the cable doesn’t block access to or touch other device components, and that it doesn’t drape where people could trip over it.
  7. Ensure that the power supplies are fully inserted into the chassis.
  8. If the AC power source outlet has a power switch, turn it off.
  9. Attach each power cable to a dedicated power source (A and B). Each power supply must be connected to a separate power source.
  10. Insert the Anderson connector at the end of each power cord into the power supply. The connector snaps and locks the cord into position.
  11. If the AC power source outlet has a power switch, turn it on.
  12. Set the three DIP switches on the power supply to indicate the number of input sources and to indicate high or low power. Set both enable switches to the On position when using both power source inputs. When not using source redundancy, set the unused source to the off (O) position. The LED turns red and indicates an error if a source input is not in use and the enable switch is on (|).
