Detailed item info - Product Information:

The McDATA ES-1000 Loop Switch operates as a managed hub to attach FC-AL devices to McDATA switched fabrics.

 IBM Magstar tape devices and LTO tape devices with Fiber Channel adapters require conversion from Fiber Channel loop (FL Port) to switched fabric (F Port) to be attached to McDATA Fabric Switches and Enterprise Fiber Channel Directors.

 The ES-1000 distributed switch intelligence provides the fabric services required for attachment of loop devices to a switched fabric.

 IBM Magstar and LTO tape device automatically initialize and log into the fabric upon cable connection and unit power-up.

 Loop switch functions such as port bypass, auto-LIP upon insertion and hardware validation of newly attached FC-AL devices enable tape devices to be added and removed without impacting other device operations.

Concentration of multiple loop devices on a single fabric port connection can dramatically reduce attachment costs.

Up to eight devices can be attached to the Loop Switch H Ports (Hub Ports). Storage device data transfers are concentrated onto a single B Port (Bridge Port), which is capable of up to 100MB per second bandwidth.

 The number of devices that may effectively utilize this attachment is dependent upon specific application characteristics.

 Concentration of multiple devices onto a single fabric connection demands a high-availability solution.

 The ES-1000 is designed to provide hot-swappable, load-sharing dual power supplies to allow the switch to remain online if one supply fails.

 Dual power cords allow attachment to separate power sources for improved availability.

 Hot-swappable power and cooling components help eliminate downtime for service when replacing a failed component and help eliminate the risk of erroneously cabling a replacement switch because of a simple component failure.

 Failed power supplies and fans are designed to be easily replaceable without special tools.

 Firmware upgrades can be downloaded to the unit while the loop switch remains operational.
