Compliance with encryption standards: AES256-XTS 1619.1 (for disk); AES256-GCM IEEE 1619.2
Hardware-based key management and generation
IR Fabric Service (optional) to enable encryption capabilities across multiple fabrics
Two hot-swappable, redundant power supply FRUs
Three hot-swappable fan FRUs in the N+1 configuration to provide hardware-redundant cooling
One RJ-45 10/100/1000 Ethernet management port
Two RJ-45 GE ports for clustering interconnection and re-key, and DEK synchronization within
One RJ-45 serial console port
A USB port that facilitates firmware upgrades, serviceability, and system-log functionality
A switch subsystem and encryption subsystem that features a CPU running at 1.3 GHz with integ-
rated peripherals that provide high performance with low power consumption
DPS, optimizing fabric-wide performance and load balancing by automatically routing data to
the most efficient available path in the fabric
SFP or SFP+ optical transceivers, providing support for a combination of SWL, LWL, or ELWL op-
tical media among the switch ports
The full range of 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gb/s can be achieved only by a combination of 4 Gb/s SFPs (1,
2, and 4 Gb/s) and 8 Gb/s SFP+ (2, 4, and 8 Gb/s).
Fabric OS support, delivering distributed intelligence throughout the network and enabling a wide
range of applications including Web Tools and Zoning. Optional fabric services include: Adaptive
Networking with QoS, Extended Fabrics, Enhanced Group Management, Fabric Watch, ISL
Trunking, IR, and End-to-End performance monitoring using APM.
Extensive diagnostics and system-monitoring capabilities to enhance high RAS
Pay as you go port and performance scalability through an Encryption Performance Upgrade Li-
cense. The base configuration provides 48 Gb/s of encryption bandwidth. The Encryption Per-
formance Upgrade License activates an additional 48 Gb/s bandwidth. Each switch accepts two
encryption-performance upgrades for a total of 96 Gb/s of encryption bandwidth. The front-end
user ports in the basic, first, and second levels of encryption bandwidth remain as 32 ports at 8
Gb/s Fibre Channel.
