Channel.
The BX4000 series, a top of the rack gateway, provides LAN and SAN connection to the InfiniBand and 10
Gigabit Ethernet based networks.
The uplink and downlink ports are separated into gateway port groups. Specific uplink ports are assigned
corresponding downlink ports. Each gateway port group is assigned a color to easily associate the uplink
ports to the corresponding downlink ports of the gateway port group.
