Remember the FSP is an independent device and it powers up and boots, when power is applied to the system chassis without any intervention at all. Your HMC connects to that, so in effect, you are connecting to a powered up portion of the system. The FSP, which can control all the hardware can then cause the SPCN network to power up all of the chassis and devices it is aware of.

While power is has not been restored to the CEC and the expansion chassis, the FSP is up and running.
