Transceivers Comply With GBIC Specs

A family of hot-pluggable Gigabit Interface Converter (GBIC) transceivers, FTR-8520 (short wavelength, multimode) and FTR-1320 (long wavelength, singlemode) transceivers are fully compliant with the GBIC specification. These transceivers have the intelligence to automatically determine the Open Fibre Control (OFC) or non-OFC preference of the opposite end of a Fibre Channel link, and adopt that mode of operation. This feature enables new non-OFC Fibre Channel systems to interoperate with legacy systems requiring OFC. Previously, only expensive board replacement in the older system would allow OFC systems to interoperate with newer non-OFC systems.
