i-8100F Deployment Diagram

  • i-8100F has eight ports: Layer 2 Ethernet/GbE, FICON and IP/GbE predefined per customer request and deployment objectives.
  • Can extend FICON devices without FICON director switches.
  • Implements trunking mechanism, allowing cost effective deployments of up to seven parallel FICON channels and/or LANs over a single IP WAN connection.
  • Supports redundant connection, for high availability and load balancing.
  • Engineered for Long Distance - transferring FICON 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.
