Data center webcast looks at protocol testing for Fibre Channel SANs

As speed and performance requirements in the SAN increase and gain complexity, efficient discovery of protocol related problems and proper error and/or credit recovery has become more complex and difficult.

Aimed at data center technicians, a recent webcast from our sister site, the optical communications industry chronicler Lightwave, investigates protocol test techniques for Fibre Channel storage products. Presented by Simon Thomas, product manager at Teledyne LeCroy, the presentation discusses 16G Fibre Channel testing challenges and techniques based on the company's new SierraNet protocol test tools.

The webcast's premise is as follows: As speed and performance requirements in the SAN increase and gain complexity, efficient discovery of protocol related problems and proper error and/or credit recovery has become more complex and difficult. The 30-minute presentation focuses on protocol testing techniques to help meet this challenge for current and next generation SAN product test engineers.

The webcast was originally broadcast on May 30, 2013. You can access it here.
