Management Panel on ACX7024 Routers

The ACX7024 management panel is located on the front of the router along with the interface ports. Figure 1 shows the management panel components on an ACX7024 router.

The management panel on an ACX7024 router displays the router product number, and it consists of the following components:

  • Status LEDs—ALM, SYS, MST, and ID LEDs.

  • USB Type-C port for external GNSS dongle support.

  • USB Type-A port for image updates.

  • Management (MGMT) port—10/100/1000BASE-T port that uses an RJ-45 connector to connect to a management device for out-of-band management.

  • SMB connector ports that support 1-PPS and 10-MHz timing devices.

  • Console (CON) port—Uses an RJ-45 connector to connect to a console management device. Additionally, you can use the CON port as a GPS time of day (TOD) port. To connect to both console and a TOD device simultaneously, you must use a breakout cable.

    Note:

    If you connect to both console and a TOD device simultaneously using a breakout cable, make sure that you have not configured the log-out-on-disconnect statement at the [edit system ports console] hierarchy level.

  • Reset (RESET) button to reset the router.

Management Port LEDs on ACX7024 Routers

The ACX7024 has one management port that has separate LEDs to indicate link status and link activity. The port is located on the management panel and is labeled MGMT. Figure 2 shows the location of the LEDs.

Port Panel on ACX7024 Routers

You can configure the ACX7024 ports into 100GbE or 25GbE interfaces as follows:

  • Four 100GbE ports (ports 0 through 3) that support quad small form-factor pluggable 28 (QSFP28) transceivers. You can channelize these ports into four 25-Gbps interfaces using breakout cables and channelization configuration. These ports also support 40-Gbps speed, when you use QSFP+ optics. You can channelize these 40-Gbps ports into four 10-Gbps interfaces using breakout cables and channelization configuration.

  • Twenty-four 25GbE ports (ports 4 through 27) that operate at 25-Gbps speed with small form-factor pluggable 28 (SFP28) transceivers, 10-Gbps speed with SFP+ transceivers, or 1-Gbps speed with SFP transceivers.

    Note:

    If you configure Precision Time Protocol (PTP), no interfaces are created for port 27 and the port is disabled.

For more information about valid port configurations on ACX7024, see Port Checker Tool.

Network Port LEDs on ACX7024 Routers

Each ACX7024 network port has a single LED to indicate link status, activity on the link, or a fault condition. Figure 4 and Figure 5 show the location of the LEDs on an ACX7024 router.

Chassis Status LEDs on ACX7024 Routers

Each ACX7024 router has four status LEDs that indicate the system status. You can find these LEDs to the left of the USB ports (see Figure 6).

Description

ALM—Alarm LED

Unlit

Off

The router 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 router has halted. Switch off power to the router and unplug the power cords. Correct any voltage or site temperature issues, and allow the router to cool down. Power on the router, and monitor the power supply LEDs to determine where the error is occurring.

Blinking

Indicates a major and a minor alarm

 

Amber

On steadily

A minor alarm has occurred, such as a software error. Switch off power to the router and unplug the power cords. Power on the router, and monitor the status LEDs to ensure that Junos OS Evolved boots up properly.
