Members of the Fibre Channel T11 committee resolved to maintain the scope of its physical standard

May 1, 1999

Members of the Fibre Channel T11 committee resolved to maintain the scope of its physical standard by sustaining the VF-45 interface (noted in the standards as the SG interface), developed by 3M (St. Paul, MN) as the only small-form-factor connector for future Fibre Channel variants. Efforts are still being made to add two more connector options to the standard, including the LC from Lucent Technologies (Murray Hill, NJ) and the MT-RJ from AMP Inc. (Harrisburg, PA) and Hewlett-Packard Co. (Palo Alto, CA).
