The EMC® Connectrix® MP-8000B is a top-of-rack FCoE switch that enables consolidation of server adapters and cables by allowing LAN and SAN traffic to travel on a single 10 Gigabit Ethernet link. By reducing server adapters and cabling, customers can lower equipment acquisition costs as well as the operational costs associated with server power consumption and cooling. The switch features eight 8 Gb/s Fibre Channel ports along with twenty-four 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) ports. The 10 GbE ports support Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE), a new version of the Ethernet standard which increases the reliability, efficiency, and scalability of Ethernet networks. This enhanced version supports multiple traffic classes over a lossless Ethernet fabric, enabling the consolidation of LAN, SAN, and cluster environments. The MP-8000B also has hot-swappable, redundant 350W power supplies and cooling fans to provide the highest levels of availability, reliability, and performance..


Fibre Channel Ports

  • Eight Fibre Channel universal (E, F, M, and FL) ports with 2, 4, and 8 Gbit/s
Ethernet Ports
  • Twenty-four 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports

FCoE Features

  • Complete T11 FCoE entity and FCoE bridging
  • Detection of Fibre Channel encapsulation and redirection of FCoE fabric login frames
  • Encapsulation of Fibre Channel frames in FCoE Ethernet packets (FC > FCoE)
  • Extraction of Fibre Channel frames from FCoE Ethernet packets (FCoE > FC)
  • Mapping of Fibre Channel destination Virtual Fabrics and destination FC_ID to Ethernet Virtual LAN and destination MAC addresses
  • Fabric-Provided MAC Addresses (FPMAs) enable new Ethernet MAC addresses to be created using the FC_ID assigned by the fabric

Media Types

  • Fibre Channel media type: Hot-pluggable, industry-standard 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 Gbit/s) and SFP (2 and 4 Gbit/s) optical transceivers
  • CEE media type: Hot-pluggable, Brocade 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+, supports any combination of Short-Reach (SR) and Long-Reach (LR) optical transceivers
