FCS-155 Fiber channel to STM-1/OC-3 Converter
FCS-155 is customer located equipment that enables transport of Fibre Channel over SDH/SONET networks. Using the GFP and FC-BB standards, FCS-155 utilizes the SDH/SONET infrastructure for cost-effective storage extension. The RAD FCS-155 includes one Gigabit Fibre Channel interface and one STM-1/OC-3 interface. Using new standards of Generic Framing Procedure (GFP), Virtual Concatenation (VCAT) and FC-BB FCS-155 enables reliable storage extension over existing SONET/SDH infrastructure. Remote FCS-155 units can be managed in the using IP over DCC protocol, Out-of-band, or via direct connection to the LAN management port. Status and diagnostic information is defined, configured, and monitored using ASCII terminal connected to the V.24/RS-232 control port, Telnet, ConfiguRAD via a Web browser, or TFTP applications for software update and remote configuration download and upload.
