The MX2010 router supports service provider core, converged core and edge, and edge applications, and enables a wide range of business and residential and services, including high-speed transport and VPN services, next-generation broadband multiplay services, and high-volume Internet data center internetworking.

The MX2010 chassis provides redundancy and resiliency. All major hardware components including the power system, the cooling system, the Control Board and the switch fabrics are fully redundant.

The MX2010 router is 34 rack units (U) tall. One router can be installed in an open-frame rack, four-post rack, or cabinet. The MX2010 router has 10 dedicated line-card slots which means a maximum of 10 Modular Port Concentrators (MPCs) including adapter cards (ADCs), and Modular Interface Cards (MICs), a host subsystem consisting of 2 Control Board with Routing Engines (CB-REs), and 8 Switch Fabric Boards (SFBs).

Up to 2 MICs can be installed in each MPC. Fully populated, the MX2010 router supports up to 20 MICs.

For a list of the supported MPCs, and MICs, see the MX Series Interface Module Reference.
