i-8100E - FC Switching Gateway


The i-8100E Is a Multi-Functional Interconnection Gateway of FC Fabrics and LANs Over Routed IP Networks

i-8100E Deployment Diagram

  • i-8100E has eight ports: Layer 2 Ethernet/GbE, FC and IP/GbE predefined per customer request and deployment objectives.
  • Implements E-Port connectivity and supports all mandatory and extended FC services (PSS, FSPF, RSCN; Zone, Name, Configuration servers).
  • Supports interoperability in all standard modes of major FC switch vendors (Brocade, McDATA, Cisco, etc.), as well as proprietary/native modes.
  • Supports local switching and direct device attachment (F-Port).
  • Layer 2 device (GBE) may be attached and tunneled over FC fabric.
  • 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 of maximal possible performance in shared or low bandwidth IP WAN environments.
