Citrix SWG MPX 14020-40G SWG and MPX 14040-40G SWG

The Citrix SWG MPX 14020-40G SWG and MPX 14040-40G SWG are 2U appliances. Each model has two 6-core processors, 64 gigabytes (GB) of memory, four 40G QSFP+ ports, and sixteen 10G SFP+ ports (4x40G QSFP+ + 16x10G SFP+).

For information on the software releases supported on the Citrix SWG hardware platforms, see Citrix SWG Hardware-Software Compatibility Matrix.

The front panel of the SWG MPX 14020-40G and SWG MPX 14040-40G have the following port configuration (4x40G QSFP+, 16x10G SFP+).

  • RS232 serial Console Port.
  • 10/100Base-T copper Ethernet Port (RJ45), also called the LOM port. You can use this port to remotely monitor and manage the appliance independently of the Citrix SWG software.
  • Two 10/100/1000Base-T copper Ethernet Management Ports (RJ45), numbered 0/1 and 0/2 from left to right. These ports are used to connect directly to the appliance for system administration functions.
  • Network Ports, sixteen 10G SFP+ ports (16x10G SFP+).

Note the following points regarding the network ports on 14000 FIPS appliances:

  • 10G ports do not support 1G copper or 1G fiber transceivers.
  • 40G ports do not support 10G and 1G transceivers.

The following components are visible on the back panel of the MPX 14020-40G SWG and MPX 14040-40G SWG appliance:

  • Two 300 GB removable solid-state drives

    These appliances are redundant array of independent disks (RAID) devices. In a RAID configuration, the same data is stored on multiple drives to improve performance, increase storage capacity, lower the risk of data loss, and provide fault tolerance.

  • Power switch

    This switch turns the power to the appliance on or off. Press the switch for less than two seconds to turn off the power.

  • Two power supplies

    Each power supply is rated at 1000 watts, 100-240 volts. Each power supply has an LED that indicates the status of the power supply, as described in here http://docs.citrix.com/en-us/netscaler-hardware-platforms/mpx/common-hardware-components.html.

  • Disable alarm button

    This button is functional only when the appliance has two power supplies. Press this button to stop the power alarm from sounding when you have plugged the appliance into only one power outlet, or when one power supply is malfunctioning and you want to continue operating the appliance until it is repaired.

  • Non-maskable interrupt (NMI) button

    This button is used at the request of Technical Support to initiate a core dump. To press this red button, which is recessed to prevent unintentional activation, use a pen, pencil, or other pointed object. The NMI Button is also available remotely over the network in the LOM GUI, in the Remote Control menu. For more information about lights out management port of the appliance, see http://docs.citrix.com/en-us/netscaler-hardware-platforms/mpx/netscaler-mpx-lights-out-management-port-lom.html.
