The Juniper MX960 is an Ethernet router for the network edge whereby it is connected to the core network routers on the one side and external network devices on the other. It is used the world over by Telecom Companies and large enterprises. It is a large 16 RU ( rack unit) chassis and it has 14 slots. These slots can be filled with the large carrier cards which are variously known as DPC ( dense port concentrator), FPC ( Flexible PIC concentrator) or MPC ( Modular Port Concentrator). The FPC and MPC are then populated with the PIC ( physical interface card ) and MIC (Modular Interface Card ) the function of these is the same, to provide the physical interface and to handle packet forwarding. MPC /MIC is later generation. The chassis also contains the SCB ( Switch Control Board) which manages the data between all the line cards mentioned above, manages the overall system and chassis and also it houses the routing engine. 100 Gbps is supported using pluggable optical modules of various generation from CFP to QSFP28 as is Ethernet, SDH and ATM protocols.
