Fibre Channel

Fibre Channel

AMP Inc., Harrisburg, PA, has signed a technology agreement with Fujikura Ltd., Tokyo, as part of an overall strategy to support Fibre Channel, which is a point-to-point protocol that transmits data at high speeds between desktop workstations, mass storage subsystems, peripherals, supercomputers and mainframes (see Lightwave, October 1995, page 6). AMP is expected to have exclusive marketing rights to two Fujikura Fibre Channel high-speed link cards and transceivers. There will be an immediate rollout of a Fujikura link card that operates at 531 megabits per second (half speed). Also planned for this quarter is a link card and a transceiver that performs at 1 gigabit per second.
