Cables and connectors


You can use the Hardware Compatibility Tool to find information about the pluggable transceivers supported on your Juniper Networks device.

The list of supported transceivers for the MX Series is located at;=All&pf;=MX+Series.


To extend the life of the laser, when a MIC is not being actively used with any valid links, take the MIC offline until you are ready to establish a link to another device. For information about taking a MIC offline, see the request chassis pic offline command in the CLI Explorer.


OK/FAIL LED, one bicolor:

  • Green—MIC is functioning normally

  • Red—MIC has failed

LINK LED, one tricolor per port:

  • Off—Not enabled

  • Green—Online with no alarms or failures

  • Yellow—Online with alarms for remote failures

  • Red—Active with a local alarm; router has detected a failure
