I am really confused about those physical part names. Can anyone explain it in detail? DPC, FPC, MPC, PIM, PIC, MIC?
I'll take a stab.
Assuming we are talking about physical assets ("physical" in this context means "you can touch it"):
DPC - Dense Port Concentrator, ICHIP-based Ethernet line card for MX240/480/960 or Services card (called MS-DPC) for MX240/480/960
FPC - Flexible PIC Concentrator, line card for M/T-series/MX240/480/960. Can have interface (sub)cards (also called PICs) inserted in it.
MPC - Modular Port Concentrator, Trio chipset-based line card for MX240/480/960. Can have interface cards (also called MICs) inserted in it.
PIM - Physical Interface Module, interface card for J-series and SRX-series boxes
PIC - physical Interface Card, interface card for M/T-series/MX240/480/960 boxes
MIC - modular Interface Card, interface card for MX5/10/40/80/240/480/960.
Please share if you have any PPT describing about Juniper Router hardware architectur..
Send me a PM with your email addr and I can share a PDF I did on this.
Can I get the PDF as well. --- firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have received it can i also get it ?
Can I get the document as well, please?
This is my email: email@example.com please share for me. Thank so much 🙂
Thanks & Best Regards,

can you please send me that PDF document?
if you have the ppt/doc still, can you share it with me: firstname.lastname@example.org
My email is email@example.com can you please share that pdf about DPC,FPC,MIC,PIC...
Please share the document to me also firstname.lastname@example.org
What I read in the MX960 hardware guide is that:
fpc—Slot in which the DPC is installed. On the MX960 router, the DPCs are representedin the CLI as FPC 0 through FPC 11.
fpc—Slot in which the MPC is installed. On the MX960 router, the MPCs are representedin the CLI as FPC 0 through FPC 11.
fpc—Lowest slot number in which the FPC is installed. On the MX960 router, the FPCsoccupy two slots and are represented in the CLI as FPC 0 through FPC 10.
Probably a silly question, but, _why_ are DPC, MPC and FPC cards all represented as FPC on the MX960? What I got a bit confused about is why 3 different types of cards are all represented in the CLI as FPC in the MX960.. Is this an historical thing, because this way you can access them in a similar way, or something else?
FPC is Flexible PIC Concentrator houses one or multiple PICs (Physical Interface Cards).DPC and MPC are the type of FPCs/Linecards.
Thank you! 🙂
[KUDOS PLEASE! If you think I earned it!
If this solution worked for you please flag my post as an "Accepted Solution" so others can benefit..]
Just found out that KUDOS did not work when I tried it yesterday because of my addblocker, but now it worked \o/
please flag my post as an "Accepted Solution" so others can benefit..
Thank you, DPC is first generation and MPC is second generation
