Manage network connections efficiently with the Juniper Networks SRX5K-MPC Modular Port Concentrator (MPC), designed for use with Juniper Networks SRX5400, SRX5600, and SRX5800 Services Gateways. The SRX5K-MPC is an interface card with two slots that accept MICs. These MICs add Ethernet ports to your services gateway. An MPC with MICs installed functions in the same way as a regular Input/Output card (IOC), but it allows you to add different types of Ethernet ports to your services gateway. You must install at least one interface card in the services gateway. The interface card can be of any of the available IOC, Flex IOC, or MPC types. You can add just one MIC; or you can add two MICs of the same or different types. You can install MPCs in any of the slots that are not reserved for Switch Control Boards (SCBs). To install and use SRX5K-MPCs in the SRX5600 and SRX5800 Services Gateways, you must have high-capacity power supplies (either AC or DC) and high-capacity fan trays installed in the services gateways. All models of SRX5400 Services Gateways already include high-capacity supplies. On SRX5400 and SRX5600 Services Gateways with AC power supplies, it is recommended that you use high-line (220 V) input power to ensure that the devices have adequate power to support SRX5K-MPCs. Supported by Junos OS Release 15.1X49-D10 and later. This MPC is compatible with Juniper Networks SRX5400, SRX5600, and SRX5800 Services Gateways, next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) that deliver outstanding protection, market-leading performance, six nines reliability and availability, scalability, and services integration. These devices are ideally suited for service provider, large enterprise, and public sector networks, including cloud and hosting provider data centers, mobile operator environments, managed service providers, core service provider infrastructures, and large enterprise data centers. The SRX5400, SRX5600, and SRX5800 Services Gateways are an integral part of the Juniper Connected Security framework, which is built to protect users, applications, and infrastructure from advanced threats. Delivering the highest level of protection from Layer 3 to Layer 7, these platforms feature a carrier-grade next-generation firewall and advanced security services such as application security, unified threat management (UTM), intrusion prevention system (IPS), and integrated threat intelligence services.
