i-8100A-SMB Cost Effective Inter-Fabric-Routing Gateway


The i-8100A-SMB offers cost effective solution for small and medium businesses for interconnecting remote SANs and LAN over routed IP networks

i-8100A-SMB Deployment Diagram

  • i-8100A-SMB has four ports: 2 FC ports, one Layer 2 Ethernet/GbE and one IP/GbE port.
  • Embedded AR/DAT engine interconnect remote SANs without actually merge them - creating non-disruptive SANs which can share devices in a secure way.
  • Supports interoperability in all standard modes of major FC switch vendors (Brocade, McDATA, Cisco, etc.), as well as proprietary/native modes.
  • Supports local switching, direct device attachment and all mandatory and extended FC services (including zoning).
  • Engineered for Long Distance transferring FC and Layer 2 Ethernet over IP for distances of thousands of kilometers without performance degradation, and with data and order delivery guaranteed.
  • Includes traffic shaping mechanisms such as Manual Rate Limitation and Congestion Avoidance to allow maintaining maximal possible performance in shared or low bandwidth IP WAN environments.
  • Uses Hardware Compression for more efficient utilization of low bandwidth or provisioned bandwidth connections - transferring more data while keeping the low price of the extension circuit.
