FCoE Specification



Adopted by INCITS T11 FC-BB-5 in June 2007; technical work completed, in
public review with T11 Letter Ballot


Frame format agreed upon by T11 in August 2007


Broad industry support and participation
Fibre Channel over Ethernet Standard

FCoE Fundamentals


Lossless Ethernet required


Priority Flow Control or Pause based


FCoE is not a replacement for FCIP


FCIP is for inter-switch links beyond the Data Center


FCoE is for the Data Center


Fibre Channel services operate identically on FCoE fabrics and
native Fibre Channel fabrics


FCoE supports all Fibre Channel advanced features (NPIV,
security, etc.) transparently


FCoE will not require changes to Fibre Channel software
FCoE Maintains Full Fibre Channel Compatibility
