Information Technology - Fibre Channel - Backbone - 6 (FC-BB-6)



FC-BB-6 defines mappings for transporting Fibre Channel over different network technologies. FC-BB-6 defines four distinct Fibre Channel mappings:
FC over TCP/IP,
FC over GFPT,
FC over MPLS, and
FC over Ethernet.

The FC over ATM and FC over SONET backbone mappings are not specified in FC-BB-6. As such, FC-BB-6 is not a complete replacement of FC-BB-3 - (i.e., see FC-BB-3 INCITS 414-2006 ) for the specification of the FC over ATM and FC over SONET backbone mappings).
