BladeCenter HT Interposer for GB Switch/Bridge Bays with ISL Option (00D6952)

BladeCenter HT provides support for internal links between redundant pairs of switch modules. These inter-switch links (or ISLs) provide the ability to establish load balancing or high-speed communications between switch pairs without consuming valuable external ports. The internal links are provided through optional switch interposers, or extenders, which are installed behind the switch module and provide a connection link between the GB Switch/Bridge Bays and the BladeCenter HT midplane which maintains the internal fabric and signaling between the two in the BladeCenter HT I/O module bay. Two of these interposer options must be ordered per switch pair, one for each of the switch or Pass Thru modules deployed with the BCHT chassis. Inter-switch links may not be applicable to all BladeCenter switch modules. Consult your WW product team for advice before ordering this option.
