A blade is the primary component that handles the traffic management within the VIPRION platform. You can install up to four blades in a VIPRION chassis. These blades comprise a group, called a cluster. The chassis includes blanks in the slots where blades are not installed. Blanks must be installed in all unused slots, as they help ensure proper airflow within the chassis and EMC compliance of the unit.
