  • New MX10K-LC480 line card (MX10008 and MX10016) —Starting in Junos OS Release 21.2R1, we’ve a new MX10K-LC480 line card with 48 SFP/SFP+ ports. The MX10K-LC480 has two Packet Forwarding Engines, each providing a maximum bandwidth of up to 240 Gbps.

    You can configure the ports as 10-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces or 1-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. By default, the ports are 10-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces.


    You must install the MX10K-LC480 line card in the MX10008 and MX10016 routers along with the front panel with filter.

    You can configure the speed at the PIC level or port level. Configure the port speed of the line card at the [[set chassis fpc <fpc> pic <number> pic-mode <mode>]] or [[set chassis fpc <fpc> pic <number> port <number>]] hierarchy.

    Benefits of MX10K-LC480 Line card

    • Low cost card
    • Interoperability with the existing JNP10K-LC1201 card
