ACX5048 and ACX5096 Chassis

Management Panel of an ACX5000 Router

The management panel of the ACX5000 router is found on the Field Replaceable Unit (FRU) end of the router as shown in Figure 1 for 1 U ACX5048 router and Figure 2 for the 2 U ACX5096 router.

See Figure 3 and Figure 4 for FRUs and management panel detail.

The management panel consists of the following components:

  • Status LEDs

    • ALM–Alarm

      • Unlit indicates the router is halted or that there is no alarm.

      • Red indicates a hardware fault, such as a power failure or a system shutdown due to system over-heating.

      • Amber indicates a major or minor alarm.

    • SYS–System

      • Unlit indicates the router is powered off or halted.

      • Solid green indicates that Junos OS for ACX Series is loaded on the router.

    • ID–Identification or beacon

      • Unlit indicates the beacon feature is not enabled.

      • Blinking blue indicates the beacon feature is enabled. This feature is enabled using the request chassis beacon command.

  • Router product number

  • Management Ports C0 and C1

  • USB port for image updates.

  • Console port (RJ-45) to support RS-232 serial ports.

Port Panel of an ACX5048 Router

The port panel of the ACX5048 supports up to a maximum of 72 logical 10 GbE ports when operating as a standalone router. Forty-eight physical ports(0 through 47) support 10 Gbps small form-factor pluggable plus (SFP+) transceivers. These ports can be configured as access ports. All 48 of these ports can be used for SFP+ transceivers or SFP+ direct attach copper (DAC) cables. You can use 1-Gigabit Ethernet SFP, 10-Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ transceivers and SFP+ direct attach copper cables in any access port.

The remaining 24 logical ports are available for six 40 GbE ports (48 through 53) that support up to six quad small-form factor pluggable plus (QSFP+) transceivers or QSFP+. Each QSFP+ socket can operate either as a single 40 Gbps port or as a set of 4 independent 10 Ggps ports using QSFP+ breakout cables. The 40 GbE ports can be configured as either access ports or as uplinks.

CAUTION:

Do not place a copper transceiver in an access port directly above or below another copper transceiver. Internal damage to the access ports and router can occur. We recommend either using the top port row exclusively, or bottom port row exclusively, for copper transceivers.

Port Panel of an ACX5096 Router

The port panel of the ACX5096 router consists of 96 small form-factor pluggable plus (SFP+) and 8 quad small-form factor pluggable plus (QSFP+) ports. Physical ports(0 through 95) support 10 Gbps SFP+ transceivers and normally are configured as access ports. The eight 40-Gigabit ports (96 through 103) support QSFP+ transceivers and are normally configured as uplinks or Virtual Chassis ports (VCPs). Although the 104 physical ports of the ACX5096 would map to 128 logical ports using channelization, only 104 logical ports are supported.

This topic describes:

Router Ports

The ACX5096 ports, (0 through 95) support:

  • 1 Gbps SFP transceivers

  • 10 Gbps SFP+ transceivers

  • 10 Gbps direct attach copper (DAC) cables

Ports 96 through 104 support:

  • 40 Gbps QSFP+ transceivers

Additionally ports 96 and 100 support:

  • QSFP+ direct attach copper (DAC) cables

  • QSFP+ to SFP+ direct attach copper break out (DACBO) cables

  • QSFP+ to SFP+ fiber break out cables

All 96 of these ports can be used for SFP+ transceivers or SFP+ direct attach copper (DAC) cables. You can use 1-Gigabit Ethernet SFP+, 10-Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ transceivers and SFP+ direct attach copper cables in any access port.

CAUTION:

Do not place a copper transceiver in an access port directly above or below another copper transceiver. Internal damage to the access ports and router can occur. We recommend either using the top port row exclusively, or bottom port row exclusively, for copper transceivers.

Channelizing Interfaces

The port panel of an ACX5096 supports up to a maximum of 104 logical 10 GbE ports that can be distributed over 96 small form-factor pluggable plus (SFP+) and 8 quad small-form factor pluggable plus (QSFP+) transceivers . Because of an 104 port restriction, only two of the eight QSFP+ can be channelized. Depending on how you set the system mode for channelization, the behavior of channelization for the QSFP+ changes. The following system modes are available for the ACX5096 router:

  • Non-oversubscribed

    All 96 SFP+ ports on the router (PIC 0) are supported. In this mode, the eight QSFP+ ports are not supported and cannot be channelized. There is no packet loss for packets of any size in this mode.

  • Default mode

    All 96 SFP+ ports on the router (PIC 0) are supported. QSFP+ ports 96 and 100 can be channelized. If ports 96 and 100 are channelized, the interfaces on ports 97, 98, 99, 101, 102, and 103 are disabled.

Chassis Status LEDs on an ACX5000 Router

The ACX5000 routers has four status LEDs on the FRU side of the chassis, next to the management ports (see Figure 7).

A major hardware fault has occurred, such as a temperature alarm or power failure, and the router has halted. Power off the ACX5000 router by setting the AC power source outlet to the OFF (O) position, or unplugging the AC power cords. Correct any voltage or site temperature issues, and allow the router to cool down. Power on the ACX5000 router and monitor the power supply and fan LEDs to help determine where the error is occurring.
