WS-X6516A-GBIC + Catalyst 6500 + Sup2 = Fibre Channel-Switching ?

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by Mike D. Njoroge, Mar 8, 2007.

  1. Hi folks,

    is it possible to use the combo mentioned above as a fibre channel-switch?

    It seems that the WS-X6515A-GBIC and the CWDM-GBIC-XXXX GBICs should support
    802.3z which is based on the (layer 1/2) fibre channel-protocol, but that
    does not neccessarily mean that I can also use this switching module as a
    pure fibre channel-switch.

    Cisco talk about FC explicitely only in their description of the
    CWDM-SFP-XXX SFP-modules.

    Am I completely off track here?
    What do you think?

    Any help and/or hints are highly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance and best regards,

    Mike D. Njoroge
