Sideband link

Sideband link is a special-purpose network connection used only to ferry data for a specific purpose (usually, a separate high-speed network that interlinks storage-area network components), not to ferry general-purposes client/server network traffic. This terminology reflects such a link’s use of a separate network that operates “off to the side”, apart from regular network connections and traffic.
