Feature Benefits
Efficient 1U design High-density 8, 16 and 24-port configurations
Auto-sensing 8, 4, 2 and 1 Gbps ports Designed to
  * Enable high performance and improved utilization
* Enable rapid switch deployment with minimal set-up
* Prove easy installation and manageability
* Offer future readiness for 8 Gbps capable servers and storage devices
Hot swappable SFPs * Provides fast and easy replacement of optical transceivers with no tools required
* Support for both short wave and long wave optical transceivers
Inter-Switch Link (ISL) Trunking * Support for up to 8-port ISLs provides total bandwidth of 128 Gbps
* Helps eliminate packet rerouting and possible application failure due to link failure
Advanced Zoning Hardware-enforced zoning helps protect against non-secure, unauthorized and unauthenticated network and management access and World Wide Name spoofing
N_Port ID Virtualization * Allows each host image behind the same physical Host Bus Adapter (HBA) to connect to an F_Port using a unique N_Port ID to help maximize port usage in a virtualized server environment
EZSwitchSetup and Web Tools * Quickly guides novice users through setup
* Helps simplify administration and configuration
Hot firmware activation Designed to:
  * Significantly reduce firmware installation time
* Enable fast firmware upgrades
* Help elimination disruption to existing fabric
* Help reduce administrative overhead
N+1 cooling * Helps maximize fabric uptime when a fan fails
Upgradeable architecture for scalable SAN fabrics * Optional features enable upgrades to support more complex fabrics
* Modular upgrades enable a “pay as you grow” approach to adding features when needed
Backward compatibility with IBM SAN b-type and m-type fabrics Helps provide investment protection for existing fabrics
Allows inter-operation with other SAN products manufactured by Brocade
Supports Native Interoperability with m-type products manufactured by McDATA (running current firmware)
