The backplane provides the following major functions:

  • Data path—Data packets are transferred across the backplane between the I/O card (IOC) and Network and Services Processing Card (NSPC) through the System I/O card (SYSIOC).

  • Power distribution—The device power supplies are connected to the backplane, which distributes power to all of the device components.

  • Signal path—The backplane provides the signal path to the IOC, NSPC, Routing Engine, SYSIOC, and other device components for monitoring and control of the system.
