Port Speed on MX Routers

In this topic we have information related to the port speed on a MX routers and line cards, support for multiple port speed details, guidelines and how to configure the port speed.

Port Speed on MX204

On an MX204 router, there are two line card— MIC (PIC1) and fixed-port PIC (PIC0). You must configure both the PICs and all the associated ports, under the [edit chassis] hierarchy. Configuring ports on only one of the PICs results in an invalid configuration.

You cannot configure port speed at the PIC level and the port level simultaneously. Error messages are displayed when you try to commit such configurations. By default, the MX204 router comes up with PIC mode where all the interfaces operate at the same speed of 10-Gbps, and both the PICs (PIC0 and PIC1) operate at 10-Gbps speed. To use different port speeds, you must first switch to the port mode. When you switch modes, either from PIC mode to port mode or from port mode to PIC mode, the PIC restarts automatically.

For information on the router, see MX204 Universal Routing Platform Hardware Guide.

To view the supported transceivers, optical interfaces, and DAC cables on MX204, see Hardware Compatibility Tool (HCT).

To change the default speed, you must select a port and configure a different port speed on it, and reset both the PICs. For example, select 40GE or 100GE on PIC0 and 10GE on PIC1. For this configuration to take effect, you must reset both PICs.

When you choose an existing port speed configuration with an invalid port speed configuration, an alarm is generated indicating that the port speed configuration is invalid. You cannot configure 1-Gbps speed at PIC level and port level. But, you can configure the port configured at 10-Gbps speed to operate at 1-Gbps speed by using the speed statement. After you commit the configuration, the operating speed of the 10-Gbps port changes to 1-Gbps speed, but the show interface command displays the speed configuration (operating port speed) as 1GE.

When you configure the port speed at the port level, only the configured ports are active while other ports are disabled. If you change an existing port speed configuration at the port level, reset the PIC for the configuration to take effect.

In PIC mode, the MX204 router does not support heterogeneous mode. That is, in PIC mode if 40-Gbps or 100-Gbps speed is configured on PIC 0, then the number-of-ports on PIC 1 must be configured to 0 only. The heterogeneous mode is supported only on port mode. When you change an existing port speed configuration at the PIC level, the MPC automatically resets the PIC.

Port speed on MX304 Router

Starting in Junos OS Release 23.1R1, the MX304 supports 1G speeds in addition to the previously supported speeds of 400G, 100G, 40G, 25G, and 10G. Also, supports 1G Class-of-Service (Cos) on 1G ports. By default, the MX304 router comes up with PIC mode where all the interfaces operate at the same speed of 100 Gbps. To use different port speeds, you must first switch to the port mode. When you switch modes, either from PIC mode to port mode or from port mode to PIC mode, the PIC restarts automatically. When a single 10 Gbps interface is selected, define the number-of-sub-ports value as 1.

For information on the line card, see MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platform Interface Module Reference.

To view the hardware compatibility matrix for optical interfaces, transceivers, and DACs, see Hardware Compatibility Tool (HCT).

For information on MX304, see Protocols and Application supported by the MX304.

When you configure and commit the port speed simultaneously at the PIC and port levels, error messages are displayed. When you change an existing port speed configuration with an invalid port speed, an alarm is generated. The fpc continues to operate with the last available configuration. If the fpc is rebooted with an invalid configuration, the fpc move to the default mode.

When you change the port configuration at the port level, the interfaces corresponding to the affected port are deleted and then re-created.

Port Speed on MIC-MRATE

On a MIC-MRATE MPC by default, all the ports operate as four 10 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. When you change an existing port speed configuration at the port level for MPC8E or MPC9E, you must reset the MIC using the request chassis mic mic-slot mic-slot-number fpc-slot fpc-slot-number (offline | online) command.

For information on the line card, see MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platform Interface Module Reference.

To view the supported transceivers, optical interfaces, and DAC cables on MIC-MRATE, see Hardware Compatibility Tool (HCT).

When you configure the port speed at the PIC level and the port level simultaneously, an error message is displayed, and when you change an existing port speed configuration with an invalid port speed configuration, an alarm is generated.

Port Speed on MX10003 MPC

MX10003 router comes up in PIC (PIC 0 and PIC 1) mode and all the interfaces operate at 10-Gbps. To configure a different port speed, switch from PIC mode to port mode and reset both the PICs. You must configure both the PICs and all the associated ports, under the [edit chassis] hierarchy.

For information on the line card, see MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platform Interface Module Reference.

To view the supported transceivers, optical interfaces, and DAC cables on MX10003 MPC, see Hardware Compatibility Tool (HCT).

When you configure the port speed at the port level, only the configured ports are active. Other ports are disabled. For example, if you want to configure the port speed as 10 Gbps, the port speed of the fixed-port PIC and the MIC should be configured to 10 Gbps. If you want to configure the port speed as 40 Gbps, the port speed of the fixed-port PIC and the MIC should be configured to 40 Gbps. However, if you choose to configure all ports of the MX10003 MPC to operate as 100-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, the ports on the MIC have to be configured to 100 Gbps and the number-of-ports number-of-active-physical-ports statement on the fixed-port PIC must be set to 0.

You cannot configure the ports that will oversubscribe the Packet Forwarding Engine. For example, a combination of eleven 100-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces on the MIC and ten 10-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces on the fixed-port PIC will result in an invalid configuration. If you try to commit an invalid configuration, the configuration will get committed. However, the port will not be activated. You can execute the show chassis alarms to display the error message. The valid configuration in this case would be eleven 100-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces on the MIC and eight 10-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces on the fixed-port PIC.

Port Speed on MIC-MACSEC-20GE

On a MIC-MACSEC-20GE MIC, all the ports operate as 1-Gigabit Ethernet interface, and the ports in the MIC are created as ge interfaces distributed across PIC0 and PIC1. In 10-Gigabit Ethernet mode, the ports in the MIC will be created as xe interfaces one each on PIC 0 and PIC 1.

The MIC-MACSEC-20GE MIC provides 128-bit and 256-bit MACsec encryption on all the twenty 1-Gigabit Ethernet and the two 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports. By default, 128-bit MACsec encryption is supported.

Configure both the PICs in the pic-mode, to set the PIC to operate in 10G mode, use the pic-mode 10G command. For any misconfiguration, the PIC operates in default pic-mode (20x1GE), where all ports are in 1-GE port speed.

For information on the MIC, see MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platform Interface Module Reference.

To view the supported transceivers, optical interfaces, and DAC cables on MIC-MACSEC-20GE, see Hardware Compatibility Tool (HCT).

When you change the speed of the port from 1-Gbps to 10-Gbps or vice versa, the Flexible PIC Concentrator (FPC) on MX240, MX480, and MX960 routers, and the Forwarding Engine Board (FEB) in MX80 and MX104 routers reboot.The 10-Gbps ports (ports 8 and 9) of the MIC-MACSEC-20GE MIC display the link status as up while the peer side is down. In this case, it is recommended to disable auto-negotiation and set the speed to 1-Gbps on the peer side to bring the link up on the peer side.

Port Speed on MPC10E-10C-MRATE

On an MPC10E-10C-MRATE, all the interfaces in the PIC mode operate at 100-Gbps speed on all the PICs (PIC 0, PIC1, and PIC 2). When you change the speed at the PIC level, the PIC restarts automatically with the newly configured speed. When you configure the speed of a port at the port level, only the speed of that port is modified. All other ports in the PIC remain unaffected. You cannot configure the port speed simultaneously at the PIC and port levels.

Oversubscription of Packet Forwarding Engine (PFE) capacity is not supported. The demand on each PFE must be less than or equal to its forwarding capacity. You can configure active ports to prevent oversubscription.

For information on the line card, see MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platform Interface Module Reference.

To view the supported transceivers, optical interfaces, and DAC cables on MPC10E-10C-MRATE, see Hardware Compatibility Tool (HCT).

Port Speed on MX2K-MPC11E

MX2K-MPC11E MPC supports a speed of 100 Gbps by default on ports 0 through port 4 on each PIC. When you change the speed at the PIC level, the PIC restarts automatically with the newly configured speed. Similarly, when you change the port configuration at the port level, the interfaces corresponding to the affected port are deleted and later recreated.

For information on the line card, see MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platform Interface Module Reference.

To view the supported transceivers, optical interfaces, and DAC cables on MX2K-MPC11E, see Hardware Compatibility Tool (HCT).

When you configure the port speed at the PIC level and the port level simultaneously, an error message is displayed, and when you change an existing port speed configuration with an invalid port speed configuration, an alarm is generated.

You can configure a maximum bandwidth of 500 Gbps per PIC. Restart the PIC manually each time you configure the port speed of a port on any PIC.

Port Speed on MX10K-LC2101

MX10K-LC2101 MPC operates at the speed of 10 Gbps (using breakout cables), 40 Gbps, and 100 Gbps with a default speed of 10 Gbps. MX10K-LC2101 MPC does not support bandwidth oversubscription hence, when you configure the ports on all PICs, ensure the PFE is less than or equal to its forwarding capacity.

Starting with Junos OS Release 19.4R1, you can now configure 1-Gbps speed on 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports of the MX10K-LC2101 MPC.

For information on the line card, see MX10K-LC2101 for MX10008 Routers.

To view the supported transceivers, optical interfaces, and DAC cables on MX10K-LC2101, see Hardware Compatibility Tool (HCT).

When you configure the port speed at the PIC level and the port level simultaneously, an error message is displayed, and when you change an existing port speed configuration with an invalid port speed configuration, an alarm is generated.

Each of the 40-Gigabit Ethernet port can be split to four 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports that can be configured to operate as 1-Gigabit Ethernet port. You must use 4x10GE LR breakout optics (QSFPP-4X10GE-LR) at the MX10008 or MX10016 end and 1-Gigabit Ethernet EX optics at the remote end. It is only optional to use Juniper optics (SFP-GE40KM) at the remote end, as any vendor's EX (not SX or LX) optics can be used.

To configure the operating speed of the 10-Gbps port to 1-Gbps, use the speed option, the output does not display support for auto-negotiation. However, autonegotiation is supported when the interface speed is configured for 1-Gbps speed.

When you change the number of active ports using the number-of-ports command, you must reset the PIC. Interfaces are created only for active ports. Only the ports you configure are known as the active ports. The number of active ports enables you to handle bandwidth oversubscription. You cannot configure the number of active ports at the port level. If you attempt to do so, an error message is displayed.

Port Speed on MX10K-LC9600

MX10K-LC9600 supports a speed of 400 Gbps by default. You can configure all the four ports as 400 Gbps at the same time.

For information on the line card, see MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platform Interface Module Reference.

To view the hardware compatibility matrix for optical interfaces, transceivers, and DACs, see Hardware Compatibility Tool (HCT).

When you configure the port speed at the PIC level and the port level simultaneously, an error message is displayed, and when you change an existing port speed configuration with an invalid port speed configuration, an alarm is generated.

Port Speed Configuration

For Junos OS 21.4R1, you can configure the port speed at the [edit chassis] hierarchy.

Forward Error Correction (FEC) support

By default, 200-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces and 400-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces support FEC119 (KP4) mode.

FEC mode is based on the type of optics connected. With non juniper optics, you can enable FEC mode by manually configuring it. When you manually configure the FEC mode, all the interfaces on a port must be configured with same FEC mode. For example, for a 4x100-Gigabit Ethernet configuration mode, each of the four 100-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces must be configured with either all FEC74 or all FEC91-KR4 mode.

For information about FEC support, see fec (gigether).
