SRX-550 max XPIM count

‎04-07-2015 05:42 PM

Hi all,

 

I remember reading somewhere you could isntall 2 x 2 port 10Gbit XPIM's into the SRX-550 since there is one 20Gbit slot and one 10Gbit slot giving you a total of three ports (our requirements).

 

Is this true that you can install 2 x XPIM 10Gbit cards thus giving you a total of 3 usable ports (obviously not four).

 

Or is the only way to get to 3+ ports the SRX-650 route?  Is there a single port XPIM? I canno't find one and is it possible to use the 10Gbit slot for the 2 x 10Gbit XPIM since the instructions only say slot 6 (20gbit slot).

 

Any advice apreciated.

Hi Mevunky,

 

On SRX550, 10G cards are supported on both slot 3 and 6. On slot 3 you can get one 10G port and on slot 6 you can get 2x10G links as below

 

root@SRX> show version
Hostname: SRX
Model: srx550
JUNOS Software Release [12.1X46-D25.7]


root@SRX> show chassis fpc pic-status
Slot 0   Online       FPC
  PIC 0  Online       6x GE, 4x GE SFP Base PIC
Slot 3   Online       FPC
  PIC 0  Online       2x 10G xPIM
Slot 6   Online       FPC
  PIC 0  Online       2x 10G xPIM

 

 

root@SRX> show interfaces terse | match xe
xe-3/0/0                up    down
xe-6/0/0                up    down
xe-6/0/1                up    down

Suraj 's information is absolutely correct.

 

I just finished a setup with 2 2x10G xPIM cards. In customer design, it perfectly utilized these 3 10G interfaces in SRX550 cluster. 3/0/0 and 6/0/0 used for down link within the DC, and 6/0/1 used for uplink to the border.

 

But on SRX650, you will see 4x 10G interfaces all available. 

 

Regards
