The cable spools are intended to help address the excess length of InfiniBand cables within a rack (including InfiniBand storage cabling). Each cable spool pair can hold approximately 60 to 70 meters of excess InfiniBand cable. As a default, one cable spool pair can support the primary network for four InfiniBand connections. The secondary network for the four nodes would be on another pair of cable spools.
