QFX10000 Chassis

QFX10000 Field-Replaceable Units

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

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

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

Table 1 lists the FRUs and their types for the QFX10000.

Routing Control Board (RCB)

Redundant configuration:

  • Primary RCB is hot-pluggable.

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

Base configuration:

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

See QFX10008 Configurations and Upgrade Options and QFX10016 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 switch fabric is being reconfigured. For example:

user@switch> request chassis sib (offline | online) slot slot-number offline

Line cards

Hot-insertable and hot-removable. We recommend that you take line cards offline before removing them. For example:

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

Optical transceivers

See the Hardware Compatibility Tool.

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.

QFX10000 Status Panel

The status panel of the QFX10008 and QFX10016 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 support the power needs of higher wattage line cards.

The status panel indicates chassis status through a set of five bi-color LEDs. See Figure 1 for chassis with the original power bus.

Figure 1: Status PanelStatus Panel

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

Table 2 describes the status panel LEDs.

QFX10000 EMI Front Panel

The QFX10000 modular chassis models come equipped with a screened door, or panel, that provides additional electromagnetic interference (EMI) protection.

The panel attaches to the front of the chassis and swings open to allow easy access to optics and line cards, see Figure 3 and Table 3.

QFX10000 Optional Equipment

The QFX10000 line of modular chassis switches supports the following optional equipment and systems:

QFX10000 Cable Management System

The QFX10000 cable management system (see Figure 4) enables you 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 4: QFX10000 Cable Management SystemQFX10000 Cable Management System

The cable management system is comprised of a set of handle extensions and a tray that snaps to the extensions (see Figure 5) for an individual line card. The handle extensions can be used with or without the cable tray. It is not necessary 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 6).

QFX10000 SATA SSD

The QFX10000 line of modular chassis switches allows you to install one of two Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) solid-state drives (SSDs) as a secondary boot drive or for log storage. The drive is available in either a 50 GB or 100 GB version. The SATA SSD is field-replaceable unit (FRU) that is installed in the front panel of a Routing and Control Board (see Figure 7).
