MPC Terminology

Regardless of whether you are holding an MPC vertically or horizontally, this information uses the same terms for all four edges of the MPC (see Figure 1):

  • Faceplate—Edge of the MPC that has connectors into which you insert the SFP or XFP transceivers

  • Connector edge—Edge opposite the faceplate; this edge has the connectors that attach to the midplane

  • Top edge—Edge at the top of the MPC when it is vertical

  • Bottom edge—Edge at the bottom of the MPC when it is vertical
