QFX5700 Chassis

The switch chassis is a rigid sheet metal structure that houses all the other components (see Figure 1, Figure 2, and Figure 3). See QFX5700 Chassis Physical Specifications for physical specifications of the QFX5700 Switch.

QFX5700 Chassis Physical Specifications

The QFX5700 modular chassis is a rigid sheet-metal structure that houses the other switch components. See Figure 1 to help identify the major components. The chassis installs in standard 800-mm (or larger) enclosed cabinets, 19-in. equipment racks, or telco open-frame racks.

QFX5700 Switch Midplane Description

The midplane is located on the rear of the chassis and forms the rear of the card cage. The Routing and Control Board (RCBs) and the Flexible PIC Concentrators (FPCs) are installed into the midplane from the front of the chassis, the Forwarding Engine Boards (FEBs), power supply units, and the fan trays install into the midplane from the rear of the chassis.

The midplane performs the following major functions: Provides a signal path—The midplane provides the signal path to the FPCs, RCBs, FEBs and other system components for monitoring and control of the system.

  • Provides a data path—Data packets are transferred across the midplane between the FPCs through the RCBs.

  • Distributes power—The power supplies connect to the midplane, which distributes power to all the switch components.

  • Provides a signal path—The midplane provides the signal path to the FPCs, RCBs, FEBs and other system components for monitoring and control of the system.
