  • Fixed-configuration MPC with two 40-Gigabit Ethernet ports and four 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports
  • Weight: 21 lb (9.52 kg)
  • Model number: MPC5E-40G10G
  • Name in the CLI: MPC5E 3D Q 24XGE+6XLGE

Hardware features

  • Line-rate throughput of up to 240 Gbps
  • Supports up to 32,000 queues per-slot
  • LAN-PHY mode at 10.3125 Gbps on a per-port basis
  • WAN-PHY mode at 9.95328 Gbps on a per-port basis
  • Supports maximum transmission unit (MTU) size of 9,192 bytes for host bound packets. For Junos OS 16.1R1 and later releases, the MTU size supported is 9,500 bytes.
  • The ports are labeled as:
    • 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports: 0/0, 0/1, 2/0, and 2/1
    • 100-Gigabit Ethernet ports: 1/0 and 3/0

Note: On MX960 routers, all the MPC slots work with the ambient temperature of up to 40° C. However, when the chassis temperature exceeds 40° C, slots 0 and 11 can work with MPC1s, MPC2s, and the 16x10GE MPC.

Software features

  • Configurable LAN-PHY and WAN-PHY mode options per 10-Gigabit Ethernet port
  • Optical diagnostics and related alarms
  • Intelligent oversubscription services
  • See Protocols and Applications Supported by the MPC5E for MX Series Routers for information about the protocols and applications that this MPC supports.

Note: On MX240, MX480, and MX960 routers, MPC5E powers on only if the network-services mode on the router is configured to either enhanced-ip or enhanced-ethernet. On MX2010 and MX2020 routers, only enhanced-ip is supported.

Cables and connectors

Tip: You can use the Hardware Compatibility Tool to find information about the pluggable transceivers supported on your Juniper Networks device.

The list of supported transceivers for the MX Series is located at;=All&pf;=MX+Series.

Note: CFP2-100G-ER4-D is not NEBS compliant on the MX960 router in FPC slot 0 or FPC slot 11.
