Quidway® ME60-8 Main Process Unit (MPUB)
MPUB is the main process and switching board of ME60-8, implementing such global functions as
route processing, service processing, resource management, state monitor, network management
agent and data switching. The main control board is inserted in the MPU slot of ME60-8 backplane
frame. Redundant configuration can be used to realize hot backup. When two MPUBs and two
switching network boards are used together, the ME60-8 can realize 3+1 redundant configuration of
the switching module.
ME60-8 has 12 slots in total: two main control slots, two switching network board slots and eight
service line card slots. Each ME60-8 needs to be configured with one or two MPUBs. Two MPUBs
are recommended. It can realize redundant backup of main control board and improves the system
The outer appearance of MPUB is illustrated in the following.
On the MPUB of ME60-8 five external interfaces are provided: CONSOLE port (communication
serial port), AUX port (auxiliary communication serial port), 10/100/1000BASE-TX Ethernet port, CF
card interface and system clock input/output interface.
