    Hi

    When I searched about Cards and Features of MX960 I encountered the term "Enhanced-ip" and This fact that for Cards Like MPC7E the box must work in this mode.

    A couple of questions here:

    1- What is the effect of this mode on Device capacity? I mean will we have any degradation in Fabric capacity of any card type?

    2- If we enable this feature will we lose features like VLAN CCC or LACP or QinQ?

    I have concerns about MPC7E(both Variants MRATE and 10G) and MPC10E-10C cards and SCBE3

    Thank you for your help and support

    Alireza

    Hello Alireza,

    On MX240, MX480, and MX960 routers, the MPC5E and MPC7E line cards power on only if the configured network services mode is enhanced-ip OR enhanced-ethernet.

    In short, the  "Enhanced-ip" mode provides  full L2 and L3 JUNOS and forwarding functionality while "enhanced-ethernet" mode provides full L2 feature-set but limited L3 feature-set

    You may find the "enhanced-ethernet" restrictions in the below link 

    https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos/topics/topic-map/chassis-guide-tm-config-ntwrk-srvics-mode.html#id-feature-restrictions-on-mx-series-routers-running-in-ethernet-network-services-mode-or

    Using the Enhanced Network Services mode help to improve the scaling and performance specific to filters in a subscriber access network that uses statically configured subscriber interfaces.

    https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos/topics/concept/chassis-services-enhanced-mode-overview.html

    you will not lose any of the mentioned features.

    Regarding MPC10E-15C/10C is supported only with SCBE3. To be specific, MPC10E15C/10C is not supported with (SCB, SCBE or SCBE2).

    SCBE3 is supported only in enhanced-ip or enhanced-ethernet modes on MX240/480/960 platforms.

    Hopefully, this helps you.
