The FC3171 8Gb SAN Switch provides a fully interoperable solution that can integrate fiber channel initiators with any existing external fabric. For maximum flexibility, you can deploy this switch in either full-fabric or transparent mode.

In full-fabric mode, the FC3171 switch supports Expansion port (E port) connections to external switches and provides enhanced systems-management capabilities. In transparent mode, the FC3171 switch uses industry-standard Node port ID virtualization (NPIV) technology to present initiators directly to the external fabric, without using E port or consuming a Fibre Channel domain ID. In transparent mode, the external fabric management is not affected by the FC3171 switch, so administrative complexity and cost is eliminated. The FC3171 switch provides twenty 8/4 Gb fiber channel ports that are configured as fourteen internal ports and six external ports.

Easy to install and manage
On-board GUI - no software to load. Just point a web browser at any switch and manage the entire fabric from that location. No matter what your level of expertise, the web-based QuickTools interface has all you need for basic fabric management.

Fast, reliable performance
The switch provides uncontested "wire speed" bandwidth at every port - a total of 320 Gbps per switch with less than 4 ms fabric latency.

Interoperability
The switch supports FC-SW-2 interoperability standards and transparent mode of operations to simplify integration into a multi-vendor fabric.

Investment protection
The switch provides low total cost of ownership (TCO) with quick set up and easy to manage integrated tools.


Product Highlights
  • Seemless low cost connectivity to storage at 8 Gb or 4 Gb speed
  • Enhanced N Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) capability across 14 ITEs
  • Auto-StreamGuard to guarantee streaming data operations
  • Port Aggregation - combine ports to increase bandwidth
  • Automatic fail-over pre-configured for peace of mind
