16G Fibre Channel Data Center Connectivity
16G Fibre Channel is the traffic protocol of choice for storage area networking. And the ability to synchronously replicate data between data centers is key to the successful implementation of a remote back or disaster recovery policy. Smartoptics has been at the forefront of SAN Fibre Channel connectivity for data centers.
Smartoptics has solutions for all types of 16G FC connectivity, from cost-effective embedded communication solutions to transponder based DWDM networking. The unique M-Series intelligent distance extending multiplexer extends the usable range of embedded networking and maintains the benefits of operating at the pure physical layer. In the Solution Brief we take a closer look at different network challenges and how to get the most out DWDM networking to address the needs.
