Description

The IBM TotalStorage SAN16B-2 fabric switch (2005-B16) supports 4 Gbps Fibre Channel capabilities for systems that support 4 Gbps throughput. This improved performance is designed to support storage networking demands to help improve throughput and enhance security.

The SAN16B-2 (2005-B16) switch provides:

  • 16 Fibre Channel ports that:
    • Provide multiple simultaneous connections, each capable of throughput speeds of 1, 2, or 4 Gbps with a maximum latency of 2 microseconds
    • Auto-sense and self-negotiate to the highest speed (1, 2, or 4 gigabits) supported by the server, storage, or switch
    • Self-configure as F_ports, FL_ports, or E_ports (Full Fabric feature required for E_ports)
  • Operation with SFP optical transceivers that:
    • Support up to 4 Gbps speeds with 4 Gbps short wave SFPs for distances up to 150 meters
    • Support 1 and 2 Gbps speeds with 2 Gbps long wave SFPs for distances up to 10 km
    • Can be used in any combination of 1, 2, or 4 Gbps short wave and long wave SFPs
    • Have increased ordering and deployment flexibility because SFPs are not included within the base SAN16B-2 product but are ordered separately with a minimum order of 8 SFPs required with the initial model B16 switch purchase, and additionally in increments of four SFPs, up to a total of 16 SFPs
  • 1U form factor designed to improve port density and rack space utilization. The SAN16B-2 fabric switch can also be ordered with country-specific power cords for tabletop use.
  • Scalable ports on demand (8-, 12-, or 16-ports) to accommodate a broad range of connectivity solutions for a wide variety of host and storage types (optional Port Activation feature available for upgrade to 12 and 16 ports).
  • Compatibility with IBM TotalStorage SAN b-type switch family (IBM 2005, 2109, and 3534).
  • Auto Fabric discovery that allows external host and storage systems to discover other supported SAN-enabled systems that are connected to the fabric.
  • Fabric Services such as Advanced Zoning and Web Tools are included in the base.

Optional features

B16 4-Port Activation (#7515)

  • This option enables upgrade from 8 to 12 to 16 ports.
  • You may optionally purchase port activation for ports 8 to 11 (first four-port increment), and ports 12 to 15 (second four-port increment).

B16 Full Fabric Activation (#7450/#7451): Full Fabric Activation is required to enable E_Ports. The switch, by default, cannot be connected to another switch until Full Fabric is installed. Without the license, the switch can be directly connected to hosts and storage devices. Full Fabric is a prerequisite to Advanced Security Activation and Performance Bundle Activation.

B16 Fabric Watch (#7550): Fabric Watch is designed to enable real-time proactive awareness of the health, performance, and security of each switch and automatically alert network managers to problems in order to help avoid costly failures.

  • Real-time tracking of numerous fabric and switch elements
  • Automatic event notifications when switch and fabric elements exceed thresholds
  • Security, availability, and congestion monitoring thresholds and alerts

B16/B32 Advanced Security Activation (#7554): Advanced Security Activation is designed to enable policy-based security mechanisms integrated within Fabric Operating System V2.6, and later. To enable advanced security capabilities, all switches within the IBM SAN Switch Fabric must be configured with their respective fabric operating system version (2.6, or later) before activating the Advanced Security feature license key. When activated across the IBM SAN Switch Fabric, the Advanced Security Activation feature is designed to support the following security capabilities:

  • Centralized security management (trusted switches)
  • Fabric-wide security policies to control access
  • Port-level access control
  • Switch-level access control
  • Management access controls (Telnet, SNMP, HTTP, and API)
  • Encryption of management data such as passwords
  • Strong and nonreputable authentication between switches

B16/B32 Performance Bundle Activation-Plant (#7555): Performance Bundle Activation is plant order only and supports both Enhanced Inter-Switch Link (ISL) Trunking and Performance Monitoring capabilities.

Performance Monitoring helps identify end-to-end bandwidth usage by host/target pairs and is designed to provide information for capacity planning.

Trunking is designed to enable Fibre Channel packets to be efficiently distributed across multiple Inter-Switch connections (links) between two SAN b-type fabric switches, while preserving in-order delivery. Both SAN b-type fabric switches must have ISL Trunking activated.

Enhanced ISL Trunking is supported between two SAN16B-2, SAN32B-2, or SAN256B 4 Gbps models and enables Fibre Channel packets to be distributed across up to eight 4 Gbps-capable ISLs for a combined bandwidth of up to 32 Gbps. When connecting the 4 Gbps-capable models to legacy 2 Gbps-capable b-type fabric switch models, ISL Trunking is supported with link speeds operational at 2 Gbps and Fibre Channel packets distributed across up to four ISLs for a combined bandwidth of up to 8 Gbps. Full Fabric Activation (#7450 or #7451) is required for ISL support with the B16 Performance Bundle Activation.

B16/B32 Performance Monitoring Activation-Field (#7556): Performance Monitoring Activation-Field is field order only and helps to identify end-to-end bandwidth usage by host/target pairs and is designed to provide information for capacity planning.

B16/B32 Enhanced Trunking Activation-Field (#7557): Enhanced ISL Trunking Activation is field order only.

Trunking is designed to enable Fibre Channel packets to be efficiently distributed across multiple Inter-Switch connections (links) between two SAN b-type fabric switches, while preserving in-order delivery. Both SAN b-type fabric switches must have ISL Trunking activated.

Enhanced ISL Trunking is supported between two SAN16B-2, SAN32B-2, or SAN256B 4 Gbps models and enables Fibre Channel packets to be distributed across up to eight 4 Gbps-capable ISLs for a combined bandwidth of up to 32 Gbps. When connecting the 4 Gbps-capable B16 model to legacy 2 Gbps-capable b-type fabric switch models, ISL Trunking is supported with link speeds operational at 2 Gbps and Fibre Channel packets distributed across up to four ISLs for a combined bandwidth of up to 8 Gbps.
