            Fiber Channel-based networking technology has revitalized the reliability and performance of server and storage environments - providing a robust infrastructure to meet the most demanding business requirements. In addition to improving reliability and performance, Fiber Channel provides the capability to distribute server and storage connections over distances up to 10 km - enabling SAN deployment in campus environments.

            However, today's organizations face even greater technology challenges and rapidly changing business requirements. In fact, many enterprise environments now require SAN deployment over distances well beyond 10 km to support distributed facilities and stricter business continuance requirements. To address these extended-distance SAN requirements, Brocade offers the innovative Extended Fabrics software feature.

            An optional feature designed for use with Brocade SilkWorm fabric switches, Extended Fabrics leverages the increased accessibility of dark fiber and DWDM equipment in major metropolitan areas. The most effective configuration for implementing extended-distance SAN fabrics is to deploy Fiber Channel switches at each location in the SAN. Each switch handles local interconnectivity and multiplexes traffic across the long-distance link while the Extended Fabrics software enables SAN management over extended distances.
