PTX10004 Routing and Control Board Components and Descriptions

The Routing and Control Board (RCB) is an integrated board and a single field-replaceable unit (FRU) that provides Routing Engine and Control Board (CB) functionality. The Routing Engine performs all route-processing functions, whereas the CB performs chassis control and management plane functionality. The RCB provides control plane functions. You can install one or two RCBs on the router. Each RCB functions as a unit.

PTX10004 Routing and Control Board Description

The PTX10004 Routing and Control Board (RCB) is responsible for system management (see Figure 1). The chassis can run with one or two RCBs. We ship the base configuration with one RCB, and you can expand the configuration with a second RCB for a fully redundant system. When two RCBs are installed, one functions as the primary RCB and the second as a backup. If the primary RCB is removed, the backup RCB becomes the primary if graceful Routing Engine switchover (GRES) is configured.

PTX10004 routers support the following Routing Engines for systems running standard Junos OS.

The following RCBs run on PTX10004 systems:

  • JNP10K-RE1-E (64 GB, standard)

  • JNP10K-RE1-E128 (128 GB, spare)

Figure 1: JNP10K-RE1-E and JNP10K-RE1-E128JNP10K-RE1-E and JNP10K-RE1-E128

Routing and Control Board Functions

The RCB integrates the control plane and Routing Engine functions into a single management unit. Each RCB provides all the functions needed to manage the operation of the modular chassis:

  • System control functions such as environmental monitoring

  • Routing Layer 2 and Layer 3 protocols

  • Communication to all components such as line cards, Switch Interface Boards (SIBs), and power and cooling

  • Transparent clocking

  • Alarm and logging functions

Routing and Control Board Components

Each RCB consists of the following internal components:

  • 10 Core 2.2 GHz CPU

  • 64 GB SDRAM or 128 GB SDRAM

  • 2x 200GB M.2 SSD

Other standard features are shown in Figure 2.

PTX10004 Management Port LEDs

The two management ports on the RCB of a PTX10004 have LEDs that indicate link status and link activity. These two ports, located on the RCB panel between the clocking connections and the USB port, are both labeled MGMT. The left management port (RJ-45) is for 10/100/1000 BASE-T connections, and the right port (SFP) is for 10/100/1000 BASE-T and small form-factor pluggable (SFP) 1000 BASE-X connections (see Figure 5). The copper (RJ-45) port has separate LEDs for status and activity. The fiber (SFP) port has a combination link and activity LED.
