ACX6160 Front Panel

ACX6160 Front Panel

The front panel of the ACX6160 contains network ports, port LEDs, console and management ports, and system status LEDs. You can manage the ACX6160 by using an open ROADM controller. Figure 1 shows the ACX6160 port panel. There are eight QSFP28 network ports and four line CFP2 ports on the front panel. Only four of the eight QSFP28 ports are currently supported (only the even ports of QSFP28, ports 0/0, 0/2, 0/4, 0/6 are supported). The system status LEDs that alert you to minor or major alarms or other issues with the transponder.

QSFP28 Network Ports

The ACX6160 has eight (client) network ports (0/0 through 0/7) that support QSFP28 transceivers. Currently (only the even ports of QSFP28, ports 0/0, 0/2, 0/4, 0/6 are supported). These transceivers provide a speed of 100 Gbps, through four 25-Gbps channels. The ports are configured as 100-Gigabit Ethernet ports by default.

CFP2-DCO Network Ports

The ACX6160 has four line CFP2 network ports (1/0 through 1/3) that support C form-factor pluggable type 2 transceivers.

ACX6160 Chassis Status LEDs

The ACX6160 has three status LEDs located on the left of the port panel, adjacent to the client port 0/0 (see Figure 2). The system status LEDs that alert you to minor or major alarms or other issues with the router, external clock synchronization ports.

Description

ALM–Alarm or beacon

Unlit

Off

The device is halted or there is no alarm.

Red

On steadily

A major hardware fault has occurred, such as a temperature alarm or power failure, and the device has halted. When such a fault occurs, power off the device. See Powering Off the ACX6160. Correct any voltage or site temperature issues, and allow the device to cool down. Power on the device and monitor the power supply and fan LEDs to help determine where the error is occurring.

Amber

On steadily

A minor alarm has occurred, such as a software error. When you see the ALM LED lit amber, power off the device. Powering Off the ACX6160. Power on the device and monitor the SYS status LEDs to ensure that Junos OS boots properly.

SYS–System

Unlit

Off

The device is powered off or halted.

Green

On steadily

Off

The device is powered on and Junos OS is loaded on the device.

ID–Identification

Unlit

 

The beacon feature is not enabled on the device.

Blue

Blinking

The beacon feature is enabled on the device. The beacon feature helps the administrator identify the device. This feature is not supported at this time.

ACX6160 Management and Console Port LEDs on the Front Panel

There are two management ports on the ACX6160, both ports are labeled MGMT. The RJ-45 management port is for 10/100/1000BASE-T connections and is located on the front panel. The other management port is located on the rear panel.

The RJ-45 port has separate LEDs for status and activity. Figure 3 shows the location of the LEDs.

Off

No link is established, there is a fault, or the link is down.

Amber

Blinking or flickering

A link is established, and there is link activity.

Status

Unlit

Off

Either the port speed is 10 Mbps or the link is down.

Green

On steadily

The port speed is 1000 Mbps.

ACX6160 Network Port LEDs

Each ACX6160 network port uses a single bicolored LED to indicate link status and activity. The circular LEDs are located underneath the QSFP28 and CFP2 ports. Figure 4 shows the location of the LEDs.
