is intended to educate the student on Fibre Channel's protocol
and hardware and its relationship to the Storage Area Network
(SAN). This course will take the student from the lowest possible
depths of the Fibre Channel hardware, to the transport layers
of the architecture, up to and including the construction of a
real SAN with real Fibre Channel hardware. You will learn details
about the Fibre Channel architecture and how to analyze both loop
and switch initialization sequences and protocols using real Fibre
Channel analyzers. You will learn how to troubleshoot SAN designs,
including FCP SCSI, large loop designs with multi-clients and
shared storage, and switched networks containing both Fibre Channel
and Ethernet hardware. This course mainly concentrates on the
Fibre Channel aspects of the SAN and how to design, troubleshoot,
analyze, and integrate the Fibre Channel hardware of the SAN.

This seminar is focused on those responsible for designing,
developing, deploying, or maintaining Fibre Channel products.
Upon completion of this workshop, you will have an in-depth
understanding of the details of how Fibre Channel integrates
into the SAN.
Prerequisites: An understanding of current computer
interfaces or networks is desirable, although not necessary.
Course Length: Approximately 4½ days with up
to 16 hours hands-on lab.
