  • 1 x Brocade 7800 Fibre Channel FC Fabric Extender HD-7800-0001
The Brocade 7800 Extension Switch combines best-in-class Fibre Channel, FICON, and FCIP performance, "pay-as-you-grow" scalability, and flexible deployment options for remote replication, backup, and migration. Up to sixteen 8 Gbps Fibre Channel ports and six 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports provide scalable bandwidth, port density, and throughput, extending and optimizing Storage Area Network (SAN) fabric connectivity over distance to support business continuity and disaster recovery applications.


System Architecture
Fibre Channel ports 16 ports; E, F, M, EX, and FL ports
FCIP ports 6 ports, 1 GbE (VE, VEX)
Scalability Full fabric architecture with 239 switches maximum
Certified maximum Single fabric: 56 domains, 7 hops
Multiprotocol routing fabric: 19 hops
Fibre Channel performance 1.063 Gbps line speed, full duplex; 2.125 Gbps line speed, full duplex; 4.25 Gbps line speed, full duplex; 8.5 Gbps line speed, full duplex. Auto-sensing of 1 Gbps, 2 Gbps, 4 Gbps, and 8 Gbps port speeds; optionally programmable to fixed port speed. Speed matching between 1 Gbps, 2 Gbps, 4 Gbps, and 8 Gbps ports.
FCIP performance 1 Gbps line speed
ISL Trunking Up to eight 8 Gbps ports per ISL trunk; up to 64 Gbps per ISL trunk. There is no limit to how many trunk groups can be configured in the switch.
Fibre Channel aggregate bandwidth 128 Gbps: 16 ports × 8 Gbps data rate
FCIP aggregate bandwidth 6 Gbps: 6 ports × 1 Gbps data rate
Fabric latency 700 ns with no contention, cut-through routing at 8 Gbps
Maximum frame size 2112-byte payload
Maximum MTU size 1500-byte Ethernet packets with FCIP
Classes of service Class 2, Class 3, Class F (inter-switch frames)
Port types FL_Port, F_Port, E_Port, EX_Port, M_Port (Mirror Port). For FCIP, VE_Port (Virtual E_Port), VEX_Port (Virtual EX_Port).
Data traffic types Fabric switches supporting unicast, multicast (255 groups), and broadcast
USB One USB port for system log file downloads or firmware upgrades
Media types Fibre Channel: Brocade hot-pluggable Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) and SFP+, LC connector; Short-Wave Laser (SWL) and Long-Wave Laser (LWL); distance depends on fiber-optic cable and port speed; supports SFP+ (2, 4, and 8 Gbps) and SFP (1, 2, and 4 Gbps) optical transceivers

1 GbE: Brocade hot-pluggable optical SFP, Short-Wave Laser (SWL) and Long-Wave Laser (LWL); GbE Copper SFP; built-in RJ-45 copper (two GbE ports); distance depends on fiber-optic or copper cable and port speed
