Configurations of the AirMax VS connector system from FCI support blade server platforms. This includes AirMax VS high-speed signal connectors, guide modules, and power connectors. The high-speed interconnect channels support industry-standard technologies such as PCI Express* Gen 2, Infiniband*, Fibre Channel, and IEEE802.3ap*-2007 "Backplane Ethernet" (1000BASE-KX, 10GBASE-KX4 or 10GBASE-KR). A short-detect contact in the signal connectors allows hot-swap insertion and removal of Compute Blade and CMM modules.
