Juniper Interface Options Routers

 

The Juniper MX Series is a flexible and resilient, converged platform that supports a variety of Interface Options. First off is the Application Services Modular Line Card (AS-MLC). It is purpose-built for enabling processing, storage, and bandwidth intensive application services on modular MX series routers. It is an x86-based line card with modular processor and solid state drive.

Dense Port Concentrators (DPC/DPCE) provide multiple physical interfaces and Packet Forwarding Engines (PFE) on a single board that installs in a slot in the MX Series Routers. The PFEs on a DPC are equipped with purpose-built application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) that perform packet processing and forwarding. Each PFE consists of one I-chip for Layer 3 processing and one Layer 2 network processor.

Modular Port Concentrators (MPC) are a set of next-generation advanced line modules for Juniper MX Series Routers that deliver the performance, services, and scalability that are critical to today’s advanced Ethernet services edge and broadband edge networks. Designed for flexibility, MPCs introduce both the industry’s highest capacity and modular 1GbE, 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE, along with Multiservice MICs (Sonet/SDH and ATM) hardware allowing the mix and match of interfaces to create service-specific and “pay as you grow” configurations. The MPC houses the packet forwarding engines that deliver comprehensive Layer 3 routing (IPv4 and IPv6), MPLS, Layer 2 switching, inline services, and advanced hierarchical quality of service (H-QoS) per MX Series slot.

Modular Interface Cards (MICs) install into Modular Port Concentrators (MPCs) and provide the physical connections to various network media types. MICs allow different physical interfaces to be supported on a single line card. You can install MICs of different media types on the MPC as long as the MPC supports those MICs. MIC cards receive incoming packets from the network and transmit outgoing packets to the network. During this process, each MIC performs framing and high-speed signaling for its media type. Before transmitting outgoing data packets through the MIC interfaces, the MPCs encapsulate the packets received. MICs are hot-removable and hot-insertable. You can install up to two MICs in the slots in each MPC.

With Terabit it’s not about price. It’s about balancing clients’ needs with how much they can afford and guiding them to the solution.

Charles
Solution Specialist

It still has that new card smell.

Joe
Marketing Manager

Nothing feels better than being the hero who can ship a piece of gear the same day and keep a network running.

Daniel
Account Executive

Used does not mean less capable. As soon as gear is plugged in it becomes “used”, much like a brand new car driving off the lot.

Brian
General Manager

If you’re happy, we’re happy. If not, call us and we’ll make it right.
