Abstract: 

The Fibre Channel (T11.3) standards committee developed a Standard called Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) The FCoE standard specifies the encapsulation of Fibre Channel frames into Ethernet Frames and the amalgamation of these technologies into a network fabric that can support Fibre Channel protocols and other protocols such as TCP/IP, UDP/IP etc. A “Direct End-to-End” FCoE variant has been accepted for the next version of the Standard The tutorial will show the Fundamentals of these FCoE concepts and describe how they might be exploited in a Data Center environment and its position with regards to FC and iSCSI. The requirements on the Ethernet Fabric for support of FC protocols will also be shown.
