The Multi-Switch Interconnect Module (MSIM) for IBM BladeCenter is a switch module container that converts a stacked pair of high-speed I/O bays into two standard I/O bays. It is supported only in the BladeCenter H chassis. Two MSIMs can be installed in the BladeCenter H: one in the space of switch bays 7 and 8 and one in the space of switch bays 9 and 10. The MSIM accepts two supported standard switch modules and enables a blade server to have up to a total of eight network connections. To connect to the switch modules in the MSIM, a blade server must have a CFFh-type adapter installed.
