Proliant BL p-Class RJ-45 Patch Panel - pair of interconnects - 32 external ports
Option Part# 230766-B21
The RJ-45 32-Port Patch Panel function as an Ethernet pass-through only. The patch panel brings all network adapter signals out as separate RJ-45 connections.
The RJ-45 Patch Panel offers fault tolerance. Ethernet signals exit the back of the server blade into the backplane in the server blade enclosure. Half of the signals from the server blade go to the left interconnect and the other half go to the right interconnect providing separate paths for the redundant network ports.
