Fixed-configuration MPC with 10-Gbps, 40-Gbps, and 100-Gbps port speeds
Weight: 15.7 lb (7.12 kg)
Model number: MPC7E-MRATE
Name in the CLI: MPC7E-MRATE
Line-rate throughput of up to 480 Gbps on MX240, MX480, and MX960 routers.
Line-rate throughput of up to 400 Gbps on MX2000 routers with SFB, and up to 430 Gbps on MX2000 routers with SFB2.
Junos Trio chipsets for increased scaling for bandwidth, subscribers, and services
Twelve Gigabit Ethernet ports that can be configured as 40-Gigabit Ethernet port or as 4 10-Gigabit Ethernet port using a breakout cable. The ports support quad small-form factor pluggable plus (QSFP+) transceivers.
Four out of the twelve ports can be configured as 100-Gigabit Ethernet ports. Port numbers 0/2, 0/5, 1/2 and 1/5 are the four 100-Gigabit Ethernet ports.
You can configure different combination of port speeds as long as the aggregate capacity per group of six ports labeled 0/0 through 0/5 does not exceed 240 Gbps. Similarly, aggregate capacity per group of the other six ports labeled 1/0 through 1/5 should not exceed 240 Gbps.
Requires high-capacity power supplies, high-capacity fan trays, and SCBE2 on MX240, MX480, and MX960 routers.
Requires an adapter card to be housed in MX2000 routers.
The ports are labeled as (with the MPC orientation as shown in the above figure):
10-Gigabit Ethernet or 40-Gigabit Ethernet ports:
0/0, 0/1, 0/2 100G, 0/3, 0/4, 0/5 100G, 1/0, 1/1, 1/2 100G, 1/3, 1/4, and 1/5 100G
100-Gigabit Ethernet ports:
0/2 100G, 0/5 100G, 1/2 100G and 1/5 100G
Note: Only ports marked 100G support 100-Gigabit Ethernet speed using QSFP28 transceivers.
Supports maximum transmission units (MTUs) from 256 bytes through 16,000 bytes for transit traffic, and from 256 bytes through 9,500 bytes for host bound packets.
Note: On MX960 routers, all the MPC slots can be occupied by MPC7E (Multi-Rate) at an ambient temperature of up to 40° C and at any altitude. All the MPC slots can be occupied by MPC7E (Multi-Rate) at temperatures of up to 55° C and at sea level. At an ambient temperature of 55° C and above, and at an altitude above sea level, slot 11 cannot host MPC7E (Multi-Rate).
