    Hi

    I following link it was mentioned we need to have Enhanced midplane on MX960 to have line-rate performance on MPC010E-10C

    https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/release-independent/junos/topics/reference/general/mpc10e-10c-mrate.html

    I want to ask what does this mean?

    as far as I know this card has 2xPFE with 500Gbps capacity. Now I install 3xSCBE3.MX Chassis has this part number:

    MX960-BASE3-AC

    Will I have Line-rate Throughput(1Tbps) on MPC10E-10C or I will have 800Gbps?

    Thank you

    check output of "show chassis hardware | match Midplane"

    it should show "Enhanced MX960 Backplane" for Enhanced

    Hi

    Thank you for the Answer. But question is Does MX960BASE3-AC have Enhanced Midplane by default installed or Not. It must installed separately?

    Any what does "3" mean in "BASE3" and what is difference with "BASE"?

     

    Thank you

    base/base2/base3 difference is only in preinstalled components. Which also can be upgraded

    Hi

    Thank you for the answer.

    Personally, I did not see Base2 mode. Only BASE and BASE3. Anyway, your answer is short and suffice.

    Best Regards
