consisting of a single chassis which can contain
multiple cards, the term 'module' refers to a card
and the term 'device' refers to the whole chassis.
In an environment where multiple chassis are 'stacked'
together, the term 'module' refers to a chassis and
the term 'device' refers to the whole stack.
In an environment containing only a single chassis
without removable cards, the terms 'device' and
'module' both refer to the chassis and its contents.
