Posted: 01 Jul 2008     Print Version  Bookmark and Share

Keywords:Fibre Channel  SAN  ANSI  10GbE 

While 1/2Gbit Fibre Channels have found applications in SAN, the Fibre Channel industry is turning its eyes to 10Gbit networks. What will this evolution be like and how will it affect the type of evaluation tests required for 10Gbit Fibre Channel products?

To fully understand how the move to 10Gbit Fibre Channel will affect the optical industry, requirements for 10Gbit Fibre Channel technologies and Fibre Channel standards changes should be considered. The 10Gbit Fibre Channel protocol runs at a signal rate of 10.518Gbps and follows the same structure defined for all Fibre Channel rates.

The Fibre Channel protocol has defined five levels of functions: FC-0, FC-1, FC-2, FC-3 and FC-4.
