This is the first complete guide to the revolutionary new Fibre Channel standard. Don't miss this opportunity to learn about the features of Fibre Channel - a revolutionary new industry standard interface that unites networked communications and computer Input/Output technologies. Fibre Channel's extremely flexible architecture combines the highspeed dedicated bandwidth of I/O channels like SCSI with the networking flexibility of local area network interfaces like ATM and Ethernet - all while operating over a variety of optical and electronic media and connection topologies at speeds exceeding 100 MBytes. This one-stop reference presents a complete overview of the Fibre Channel architecture - the first generally available besides the ANSI documentation. You'll find step-by-step guidance on the FC standard ranging from the physical level signal transmission up to the interface to upper level protocols such as IP and SCSI. Included is information on the structure, concepts, operations, and capabilities of Fibre Channel, as well as highly detailed descriptions that you can use as a general guide in building and troubleshooting FC systems. Whether you're a communications manager, engineer, developer, or technician, this hands-on sourcebook will enable you to understand and work effective with Fibre Channel systems in a networked computing environment.
