PTX10016 Chassis

The PTX10016 chassis houses the hardware components. The chassis components include the fan trays, fan tray controllers, power supplies, Routing and Control Boards (RCBs), line cards, optional cable management system, and the status panel.

PTX10016 Field-Replaceable Units

Field-replaceable units (FRUs) are router components that you can replace at your site. The router uses the following types of FRUs:

  • Hot-insertable and hot-removable—You can remove and replace these components without powering off the router or disrupting the routing function.

  • Hot-pluggable—You can remove and replace these components without powering off the router, but the routing function is interrupted until you replace the component.

Table 1 lists the FRUs and their types for the PTX10016 routers.

Routing and Control Boards (RCBs)

Redundant configuration:

  • Primary RCB is hot-pluggable.

  • Backup RCB is hot-insertable and hot-removable.

Base configuration:

  • Removal of the RCB causes the router to shut down. You can install a replacement RCB in the second slot. The system restarts to elect a primary RCB and a backup RCB. If necessary, you can switch the primary and backup RCBs using the request chassis routing-engine master switch command.

See PTX10016 Components and Configurations.

Switch Interface Boards (SIBs)

SIBs are hot-insertable and hot-removable. We recommend that you take SIBs offline before removing them to avoid traffic loss while the router fabric is being reconfigured. Use the following command:

user@router> request chassis sib slot slot-number offline

Line cards

Hot-insertable. We recommend that you take line cards offline before removing them. Use the following command:

user@router> request chassis fpc-slot slot-number offline 

Optical transceivers

See PTX10016 Optical Transceiver and Cable Support for how to find detailed specifications and the Junos OS release in which the transceivers were introduced.

Hot-insertable and hot-removable.

Note:

Line cards are not part of the base or redundant configuration. You must order them separately.

Note:

If you have a Juniper Care service contract, register any addition, change, or upgrade of hardware components at https://www.juniper.net/customers/support/tools/updateinstallbase/. Failure to do so can result in significant delays if you need replacement parts. This note does not apply if you replace an existing component with the same type of component.

PTX10016 Status Panel

The status panel of the PTX10016 has two purposes:

  • Shows the overall status of the chassis

  • Indicates the type of power bus internal to the chassis

Some chassis ship with an enhanced power bus to future-proof the chassis for potential power growth.

The status panel indicates the chassis status through a set of five bicolor LEDs. See Figure 1 for a chassis status panel with the standard power bus.

Figure 1: Status Panel on Chassis with the Standard Power BusStatus Panel on Chassis with the Standard Power Bus

Other chassis also have the same set of five bicolor LEDs, but also have an azure blue line to indicate the presence of the enhanced power bus (see Figure 2).

Table 2 describes the status panel LEDs.

PTX10016 Optional Equipment

The PTX10016 routers supports the cable management system (JLC-CBL-MGMT-KIT) as optional equipment:

PTX10016 Cable Management System

You can use the PTX10016 cable management system (see Figure 3) to route optical cables away from the line-card ports for better airflow through the chassis. Using this optional system also makes it easier to use cable ties or strips to organize the cabling.

Figure 3: PTX10016 Cable Management SystemPTX10016 Cable Management System

The cable management system comprises a set of handle extensions and a tray that snaps to the extensions (see Figure 4) for an individual line card. You can use the handle extensions with or without the cable tray. You don’t need to remove the handle extensions if you want to remove a line card.

Cables are draped across or under the handle extensions and then secured with cable wraps (see Figure 5).
