4-Gb B-series SFPs; 10-GbE ports require 10-GbE B-series SFPs.)
HP StorageWorks 1606 Extension SAN Switch, the next-generation distance extension platform
for FCIP applications, supports 16 FC ports at 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gb/s, and 6 1-GbE optical ports.
(The user can select either a copper or optical interface on two ports.) GbE ports require 4-Gb B-
