Spirent TestCenter: Why can't I access a MX-10G-S2 module in my 9U (SPT-9000) chassis?

  • Spirent TestCenter
    • 9U
    • Revision 1 backplane
    • MX-10G.S2
  • This module is not supported in the early versions of the 9U chassis (Version 1 backplane). 
  • You must have a revision 2 backplane. 
  • If you do not, the module may appear to work briefly, but will then become unavailable as the earlier backplanes are not compatible with this module.
  • To see what backplane you have, go to the Spirent TestCenter application and navigate to, Tools/Equipment/Chassis.  
    • Then move the slider bar to the right and look under "Backplane Version". 
    • If you do not see rev 2, the chassis does not support the MX-10G-S2 module.
  • Version 1 chassis can be upgraded to version 2 but not in the field. It must be sent back to Spirent.
