Front Panel of a QFX3600-I Interconnect Device

The front panel of the QFX3600-I Interconnect device consists of the following components:

  • LCD panel—The LCD panel displays the device hostname and the number of active alarms.

    Tip:

    Alternatively, you can use the show chassis lcd CLI command to view what is currently displayed on the LCD panel.

  • Chassis status LEDs

  • USB port

  • Console (CON) port

  • Management ports—The QFX3600-I Interconnect device has four management ports. The ports labeled C0 and C1 are 1000BASE-T RJ-45 ports, and the ports labeled C0S and C1S are 1-Gbps SFP ports. These ports are used to connect the QFX3600-I Interconnect device to the QFabric system control plane and management network.

    Note:

    When an SFP is inserted into a management port, the RJ-45 management ports (C0 and C1) are disabled.

  • Chassis serial number label and ESD point

    Note:

    The chassis serial number ID label is located on a sliding panel on the top right of the front panel on a QFX3600-I Interconnect device (see Figure 1). To use the sliding panel as an ESD point, pull the sliding panel partway out of the chassis, and connect a clip-style or tape-style ESD grounding strap to the panel.

  • Uplink ports—The QFX3600-I Interconnect device has sixteen 40-Gbps ports labeled Q0 through Q15 that support quad small form-factor pluggable plus (QSFP+) transceivers. See The Hardware Compatibility Tool.

  • Uplink port LEDs
