What is Brocade technology?

Brocade is an American technology company specializing in storage networking products, now a subsidiary of Broadcom Inc. The company is known for its Fibre Channel storage networking products and technology. Broadcom has since redomesticated to the United States and is now known as Broadcom Inc.

What is Fcid in Brocade?

The FCID is similar to an IP address in Ethernet. It’s used by Fibre Channel switches to route traffic between servers and their storage. Switches maintain a table of FCID to WWPN address mappings and what port the host is located on.

What is Brocade ISL?

Brocade Inter-Switch Link (ISL) trunking aggregates multiple ISLs into a single, logical high- bandwidth connection that is efficient, resilient, and simple. Emulex HBA trunking extends this technology between endpoints and switches to provide end-to-end trunking benefits.

What is ISL in Brocade SAN Switch?

Inter-Switch Links
For Brocade switches on which the Inter-Switch Links (ISL) are configured using FC ports, you must configure the switch ports on each switch fabric that connect the ISL. These ISL ports are also known as E-ports. All of the ISLs in an FC switch fabric must be configured with the same speed and distance.

What is San ISL?

An ISL is a connection between two switches through an Expansion Port (E_Port). When using ISL Trunking to aggregate bandwidth of up to four ports, the speed of the ISLs between switches in a fabric is quadrupled. For example, at 2 Gb/s speeds, trunking delivers ISL throughput of up to 8 Gb per second.

What is ISL used for?

ISL is used in Cisco switches for VLAN switching purpose. Cisco has also introduced facility to carry Token Ring, FDDI, and ATM frames over Ethernet ISL. ISL Trunking can be used to improve the performance, manageability, and reliability.

What is ISL port?

An ISL is a connection between two switches through an Expansion Port (E_Port). ISL Trunking simplifies network design and reduces the cost of storage management by optimizing bandwidth utilization and enabling load balancing of traffic at the frame-level.
