Over Routed IP Gateway

i-8100B Deployment Diagram

  • i-8100B has eight ports: Layer 2 Ethernet/GbE, FC and IP/GbE predefined per customer request and deployment objectives.
  • Implements trunking mechanism, allowing cost effective deployments of up to seven parallel LAN or/and FC fabrics over a single IP WAN connection.
  • Presents a "B" port to the local FC switch. This provides an industry standard interface that lets all standard and proprietary FC services pass from one remote site to another.
  • Supports redundant connections, for high availability and load balancing.
  • Engineered for Long Distance - transferring Layer 2 Ethernet and FC 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 of maximal possible performance in shared or low bandwidth IP WAN environments.
