General specifications for system features

This table lists general specifications for system features for iSeries platforms.

Item Specification
Transceiver modules hot swap Support for hot swap of optical transceiver modules
Power supply hot swap Support for hot swap of the power supplies

TurboFlex™ Profiles TurboFlex Profiles are groupings of hardware-accelerated (FPGA) features that are associated with a specific use case. TurboFlex Profiles are groupings of hardware-accelerated features that are dependent on module licensing. If BIG-IP® LTM® is licensed and provisioned, then the ADC profile is available. If BIG-IP AFM™ is licensed and provisioned, then the Security profile is available. TurboFlex Profiles are supported only in platforms running a high performance license (x800). Also, TurboFlex Profile availability varies depending on the platform series tier.
