DCB/CEE ports

24 ports with 10 GB Ethernet

FCoE features

Complete T11 FCoE entity and FCoE bridging
The FCoE translation entity built into the hardware engine provides:
Detection of Fibre Channel encapsulation and redirection of FCoE fabric login frames
Encapsulation of Fibre Channel frames in FCoE Ethernet packets (FC > FCoE)
Extraction of Fibre Channel frames from FCoE Ethernet packets (FCoE > FC)
Mapping of Fibre Channel destination Virtual Fabrics and destination FC_ID to Ethernet Virtual LAN and destination MAC addresses
Fabric-Provided MAC Addresses (FPMAs) enable new Ethernet MAC addresses to be created using the FC_ID assigned by the fabric

Multicast

Data traffic types

Fabric switches supporting unicast, multicast (255 groups), and broadcast

Other Switching

ISL Trunking

Frame-based ISL Trunking (optional license) enables up to 8 ports between a pair of switches to be combined into a logical ISL with speeds of up to 64 GB (128 GB full duplex) for optimal bandwidth utilization and load balancing; exchange-based load balancing across ISLs with DPS (included in Fabric OS)
