The DB620S FC SAN Switch comes standard with the following software features (based on Fabric OS
Advanced Fabric Services
Full Fabric mode: Enables high performance 16 Gb or 32 Gb switching in multi-switch fabric.
Advanced Zoning (default zoning, port/WWN zoning, broadcast zoning)
Dynamic fabric provisioning (DFP): Fabric-assigned port World Wide Names (FA-PWWNs).
Dynamic path selection (DPS): Distributes input traffic across multiple paths proportionally to
the bandwidth of each path.
Dynamic load sharing (DLS): Distributes traffic across multiple equal paths between
Fabric Shortest Path First (FSPF)
Buffer-to-Buffer (BB) credit flow control
Buffer credit recovery
Forward error correction (FEC)
Fabric Device Management Interface (FDMI)
Frame order delivery
FC login services
Registered State Change Notification (RSCN)
Reliable Commit Service (RCS)
Simple Name Server (SNS)
Fibre Channel Authentication Protocol (FCAP) switch authentication
Management Server (MS): Assists in the auto-discovery of switch-based fabrics.
In-flight compression on up to 4 ports
Integrated 10Gb FC feature
Traffic isolation zoning (TIZ): Creates a dedicated path for traffic flowing from a specific set
of source ports (F_Ports).
Quality of Service (QoS): SID/DID pair traffic prioritization (high, medium, low).
N_Port ID virtualization (NPIV): Enables a single FC port to appear as multiple, distinct ports
with separate port identification within the fabric.
Access Gateway: Leverages NPIV to connect to any fabric without adding switch domains to
reduce management complexity.
Virtual Fabrics (Logical Switch, Logical Fabric): Allows SAN design and management at the
granularity of a port.
