  • Four fully programmable Junos Trio chipsets for increased scaling for bandwidth, subscribers, and services

  • One Junos Trio chipset per set of four ports

  • LAN-PHY mode at 10.3125 Gbps


    The 16x10GE 3D MPC does not support WAN-PHY mode.

Software features


Syntax: xe-fpc/pic/port where:

  • fpc: Slot in the router where the MPC is installed

  • pic: Grouping of 4 ports, numbered 0 through 3

  • port: 0 through 3

For example, xe-1/3/3 is the interface for the last port (labeled 3/3) on an MPC installed in slot 1.

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.


The 16x10GE 3D MPC does not support WAN-PHY mode.


SFPP-10G-CT50-ZR is not NEBS compliant when plugged into the MPC-3D-16XGE-SFPP. If the ambient air temperature exceeds 55°C (131°F), Junos OS disables the transmitter, which takes the optical transceiver offline.


OK/FAIL LED, one bicolor:

  • Steady green—MPC is functioning normally.

  • Blinking green—MPC is transitioning online or offline.

  • Red—MPC has failed.

Enable/disable LED, one bicolor per port:

  • Green—Port is enabled.

  • Yellow—Port is not functioning normally.

  • Off—Port is disabled.

The enable/disable LEDs are labeled in groups of four:

  • 0/0 through 0/3

  • 1/0 through 1/3

  • 2/0 through 2/3

  • 3/0 through 3/3
