Multiprotocol storage networking is central to Cisco® Unified Fabric, providing a networking platform for IT departments to achieve lower total cost of ownership (TCO), enhanced resiliency, and greater agility. Cisco Unified Fabric unifies storage and data networking with the data center operating system to deliver convergence, scalability, and network intelligence. With the Cisco MDS 9700 48-Port 10-Gbps Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) Module, the Cisco MDS 9700 Series Multilayer Directors platform now offers both 16-Gbps Fibre Channel and 10-Gbps FCoE capabilities, providing multiprotocol flexibility for SANs. Now you can extend the benefits of FCoE beyond the access layer to the data center core with a full line-rate FCoE module for the Cisco MDS 9700 Series.
Save money, simplify management, reduce power and cooling requirements, and improve flexibility by deploying FCoE, while protecting your Fibre Channel SAN investment with the Cisco MDS 9700 10-Gbps 48-Port FCoE Module. FCoE allows an evolutionary approach to I/O consolidation by preserving all Fibre Channel constructs. It maintains the latency, security, and traffic management attributes of Fibre Channel, as well as your investment in Fibre Channel tools, training, and SANs. FCoE also extends Fibre Channel SAN connectivity; now 100 percent of your network servers can be attached to the SAN.
