The Canoga Perkins team has developed a NEBS Level 3-certified storage area network product using Fibre Channel technology to handle long distance SAN extension needs up to 84 kilometers. The new 9125 Fibre Channel Xtender is a very small footprint standalone or rack mounted device used to extend the distance of Fibre Channel applications in a cost effective manner.

Jack Buhn, Canoga Perkins President and CEO, stated, "This new product was designed specifically for the rapidly growing Fibre Channel SAN market, and the addition of NEBS Level 3 adds a new dimension to the applications this product can handle. Service providers can now use Fibre Channel in the central office due to the just received NEBS Level 3 certification. We want to turn the storage area network into the global area network with our new extension product." NEBS Level 3 is required by Service Providers for use in central office applications.
