PTX3000 Interface Modules

PTX3000 FPC Description

FPC Slots

Up to eight FPCs install vertically in the front of the PTX3000 (Figure 1). The FPC slots are numbered 0, 2, 4, and 6 in the upper chassis, and 8, 10, 12, and 14 in the lower chassis. If a slot is not occupied by an FPC, a blank panel must be installed to shield the empty slot and to allow cooling air to circulate properly through the PTX3000. The PIC in the slot to the right of an FPC is associated with that FPC. For example, the PIC in slot 1 is associated with the FPC in slot 0.

Figure 1: FPC SlotsFPC Slots
Note:

The integrated photonic line cards (IPLCs) are installed in any of the FPC or PIC slots.

FPC Function

The main function of an FPC is to connect the PIC installed in the slot to its right to other components in the chassis. The Packet Forwarding Engine receives incoming packets from the associated PIC and forwards them through the switch plane to the appropriate destination port.

When you install an FPC into a functioning PTX3000, the Routing Engine downloads the FPC software, the FPC runs its diagnostics, and the adjacent PIC to the right of the FPC is enabled. Forwarding on other FPCs continues uninterrupted during this process.

Note:

After an FPC is taken offline, the FPC might restart if any configuration changes are made. To configure an FPC to stay offline and prevent it from restarting, include the power off statement at the [edit chassis fpc fpc-slot-number] hierarchy level. For more information, see the power CLI reference documentation.

Note:

Third-generation FPCs (FPC3-SFF-PTX) support additional features when the enhanced-mode statement is configured at the [edit chassis network-services] hierarchy level.

  • By default, the enhanced-mode statement is disabled.

  • After you configure the enhanced-mode statement and commit the configuration, you must reboot the router.

  • If the enhanced-mode statement is configured, only third-generation FPCs are powered on. Other FPCs cannot be brought online.

  • If the enhanced-mode statement is not configured, third-generation FPCs do not support advanced features.

FPC Terminology

Regardless of whether you are holding an FPC vertically or horizontally, this document uses the same terms for all four edges of the FPC (see Figure 4):

  • Faceplate—Edge of the FPC that is visible when the FPC is inserted in to the front of the chassis

  • Connector edge—Edge opposite the faceplate; this edge has the connectors that attach to the backplane

  • Top edge—Edge at the top of the FPC when it is vertical

  • Bottom edge—Edge at the bottom of the FPC when it is vertical

FPCs Supported on the PTX3000

Table 1 lists the FPCs supported on the PTX3000. The First Junos OS Release Supported column indicates the first release that the FPC is supported on the PTX3000.

CAUTION:

FPC-SFF-PTX-T does not interoperate with other FPCs in the same PTX3000. FPC-SFF-PTX-T can be used only with other FPC-SFF-PTX-T FPCs. If an FPC-SFF-PTX-T FPC is deployed in a mixed-FPC environment, then an alarm is raised and an error condition results.

FPC-SFF-PTX-T FPCs are not supported in a PTX3000 with SIB3-SFF-PTX SIBs.

Note:

Third-generation FPCs (FPC3-SFF-PTX) are supported only in a PTX3000 with SIB3-SFF-PTX SIBs. Third-generation FPCs and FPC-SFF-PTX-P1-A first-generation FPCs can interoperate with each other in the same system.

Note:

The different third-generation FPC models are collectively referred to as FPC3-SFF-PTX throughout this hardware guide. The third-generation FPCs are identified as FPC3-SFF-PTX-U1 on the FPC faceplate.

You can upgrade an FPC3-SFF-PTX-1H FPC to an FPC3-SFF-PTX-1T FPC and increase the maximum throughput from 500 Gbps to 1 Tbps by purchasing an additional license from Juniper Networks.

PTX3000 PIC Description

PIC Slots

Up to eight PICs install vertically in the front of the PTX3000 (Figure 7). The PIC slots are numbered 1, 3, 5, and 7 in the upper chassis, and 9, 11, 13, and 15 in the lower chassis.

The PIC in the slot to the right of an FPC is associated with that FPC. Each PIC requires an FPC to be installed in the adjacent FPC slot to its left as specified in Table 3. For example, the PIC in slot 1 is associated with the FPC in slot 0.

When a slot is not occupied by a PIC, you must insert a blank PIC to fill the empty slot and ensure proper cooling of the system. Blank PICs resemble other PICs but do not provide any physical connection or activity. PICs are hot-removable and hot-insertable.

Note:

The integrated photonic line cards (IPLCs) are installed in any of the FPC or PIC slots.

PIC Function

PICs provide the physical connection to various network media types, receiving incoming packets from the network and transmitting outgoing packets to the network. During this process, each PIC performs framing and line-speed signaling for its media type. Before transmitting outgoing data packets, the PICs encapsulate the packets received from the FPCs.

PIC Components

Figure 8 shows an example of a PIC supported on the PTX3000. PICs have an upper ejector handle and a lower ejector handle.

PTX3000 IPLC Description

The integrated photonic line card (IPLC) base module (PTX-IPLC-B-32) is an integrated optical card that provides the combined functionalities of optical multiplexing and demultiplexing, optical amplification, optical equalization, and optical channel monitoring. The IPLC base module multiplexes and enables amplification of up to 32 individual wavelengths for transmission over single-mode optical fiber (through the add and drop ports on the front panel). The add and drop ports on the front panel of the IPLC connect to compatible dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) PICs or MICs. The wavelengths from the add and drop ports on the IPLC are amplified, monitored, and controlled and then transmitted toward the line direction (through the Line OUT port on the front panel). In the reverse direction, the received signals from the line are amplified to enable long-distance transmission and received through the Line IN port and then demultiplexed into individual wavelengths and sent to the respective add and drop ports on the front panel.

The IPLC expansion module (PTX-IPLC-E-32) is an optical multiplexing and demultiplexing card that interfaces with the IPLC base module to increase the add/drop capacity of the system up to 64 channels.

In a PTX3000 chassis, you can install an IPLC in any of the FPC or PIC slots. The IPLCs install vertically in the front of the PTX3000. Up to 16 IPLC base modules or up to 8 base modules and 8 expansion modules are supported in a PTX3000 chassis. Each expansion module must be connected to a base module. The IPLC connects directly to the integrated DWDM PICs/MICs (for example, the P1-PTX-2-100G-WDM or P1-PTX-5-100G-WDM) in the same chassis, or an external chassis through the IPLC front panel add and drop ports. See PTX Series IPLC Compatibility to see which PICs/MICs are supported by the IPLC. Also, the IPLC can connect to another IPLC in the same chassis through the bidirectional express ports (XPN IN and XPN OUT) to enable an optical bypass function.

The IPLC can also connect to an optical inline amplifier (ILA) in the network to enable transmission across longer spans. See the Optical Inline Amplifier Hardware Guide for more details about the optical ILA.

Figure 9 shows a point-to-point configuration for an IPLC.

Figure 9: Point-to-Point Configuration Point-to-Point Configuration

In this example, the IPLC in the PTX3000 chassis is connected to compatible PICs in the same chassis through the add and drop ports. The wavelengths from the add and drop ports on the IPLC are multiplexed and then amplified, monitored, and transmitted in a single fiber toward the line (through the Line OUT port on the IPLC) and the IPLC is connected to the remote IPLC (through the Line IN port) in the remote PTX3000 chassis through the optical ILA . The IPLC connects to the optical ILA through the Line IN and Line OUT ports. The optical ILAs provide periodic amplification of the signal to enable long-distance transmission and are typically placed between 50 miles (80 km) and 62 miles (100 km) apart. The signals received by the IPLC in the remote chassis are demultiplexed into individual wavelengths and sent to the respective add and drop ports (which are connected to the compatible PICs) in that PTX3000 chassis. See PTX Series IPLC Compatibility to see which PICs/MICs are supported by the IPLC.

You can manage the IPLCs by using the Junos operating system (Junos OS). For information about configuring the IPLCs, see the Integrated Photonic Line Card (IPLC) System User Guide.

Starting with Junos OS release 17.1, you can control and manage optical inline amplifiers (ILA) over the optical supervisory channel (OSC) of the IPLCs. For information see the Integrated Photonic Line Card (IPLC) System User Guide.

You can also manage the IPLC through Connectivity Services Director (CSD), which is a Junos Space application developed to manage the optical functionality provided by IPLCs that are installed in the PTX3000 routers. CSD is managed over a data communications network (DCN). See the Packet Optical Support in CSD Guide for more information.

IPLC Base Module

The IPLC base module provides the following optical functions:

  • Multiplexing and demultiplexing of up to 32 channels spaced at 100 GHz.

  • Amplification of the aggregate multiplexed wavelengths to enable long-distance transmission.

  • Per channel power monitoring and control through the use of an on-board optical channel monitor (OCM) and wavelength selective switch (WSS).

  • Bypass of optical channels between pairs of IPLCs for low-cost optical networking. Two IPLC base modules installed in the same chassis can form an optical bypass. In addition, adding an expansion module (connected to an IPLC base module) can expand the number of channels supported beyond the 32 channels, up to 64 channels.

  • Support for the optical supervisory channel (OSC) is transmitted through an OC-3 1510 nm signal that enables the IPLC to communicate with the remote IPLC or communicate with and manage the optical ILA.

IPLC Base Module Components

Figure 10: IPLC Base Module FaceplateIPLC Base Module Faceplate

Each IPLC base module weighs 6.3 lb (2.85 kg). See Figure 10. The add and drop ports are numbered 0 through 31 and the port numbers are denoted by R and L. For example, as shown in the lower magnified view in Figure 10, L15 refers to the add and drop ports on the left side and R31 refers to the add and drop ports on the right side on the front panel.

The IPLC base module consists of these components:

  • STATUS LED that displays the status of the IPLC.

  • ON/OFF button that resets the IPLC.

  • Line IN and Line OUT ports—An input and an output port to connect to another optical network device. You can use these ports to connect to another IPLC or to the optical ILA.

  • PT IN and PT OUT ports—An input and an output port to connect to an another IPLC base module. Two IPLCs can be installed in the same chassis to form an optical express-in (bypass).

  • XPN IN (expansion in) and XPN OUT (expansion out) ports—An input and an output port to connect to an IPLC expansion module.

  • ADD and DROP ports—A total of 32 pairs of ports (32 add ports and 32 drop ports) for 32 DWDM channels.

Note:

All the ports on the IPLC use fiber-optic cables with LC connectors. See Connecting PIC or IPLC Cables to the PTX3000 for more information.

IPLC Expansion Module

The IPLC expansion module connects to the IPLC base module through the XPN IN and XPN OUT ports. It provides the following optical functions:

  • Increases the total optical DWDM channel capacity by 32 ports. It does not interface directly with the network.

  • Provides multiplexing and demultiplexing of up to 32 channels spaced at 100 GHz.

IPLC Expansion Module Components

Figure 11: IPLC Expansion Module FaceplateIPLC Expansion Module Faceplate

Each IPLC expansion module weighs 3.3 lb (1.49 kg). See Figure 11. The add and drop ports are numbered 32 through 63 and the port numbers are denoted by R and L. For example, as shown in the lower magnified view in Figure 11, L47 refers to the add and drop ports on the left side and R63 refers to the add and drop ports on the right side on the front panel. The IPLC expansion module consists of these components:

  • STATUS LED that displays the status of the IPLC.

  • XPN IN (expansion in) and XPN OUT (expansion out) ports—A pair of input and output ports to connect to the IPLC base module.

  • ADD and DROP ports—A total of 32 pairs of ports (32 add ports and 32 drop ports) for 32 DWDM channels.

All the ports on the IPLC use fiber-optic cables with LC connectors. See Connecting PIC or IPLC Cables to the PTX3000 for more information.

Table 8 provides the supported wavelength allocation on the ports.
