Answer MX Series MPC line cards ̶ The MX Series MPC provides the connection between the customer’s Ethernet interfaces and the routing fabric of the MX Series chassis. The board features two Junos Trio chipsets. 16-port 10-Gigabit Ethernet MPC ̶ This MPC provides the connection between 10-Gigabit Ethernet LAN interfaces and the routing fabric of the MX Series chassis. It has four identical packet processing paths combined with a control plane. 100-Gigabit Ethernet MPC ̶ This MPC provides the connection between 100-Gigabit Ethernet LAN interfaces and the routing fabric of the MX Series chassis
Junos Continuity software is currently supported on the MX240, MX480, MX960, and MX2000 Series 3D Universal Edge Routers

MPLS Configuration Supported Platforms DSCP Classifier Configuration Layer 3 VPNs and VPLSs using an LSI routing instance M320, M120, and MX Series Configured under class-of-service routing-instances on the egress PE router. Layer 3 VPNs using a virtual tunnel (VT) routing instance M320, M120, and MX Series Configured on the core-facing interface under class-of-service interfaces on the egress PE router. MPLS forwarding M320, M120, and MX Series (not supported on IQE and MX Series when ingress queuing is used) Configured on the ingress core facing interface under class-of-service interfaces on the P or egress PE router. VPLS using a VT routing instance Not supported MPLS forwarding when number of labels in the MPLS label stack is more than two Not supported For more information, see MX Series Interface Module Reference #MPLS-taggedpackets #FAQ #JuniperMXSeries #I-chip-basedDPC
