The Cisco MDS 9216i Multilayer Fabric Switch integrates Fibre Channel and IP into a single form factor, providing fourteen 2-Gbps Fibre Channel interfaces and two Gigabit Ethernet ports which can be configured to support either Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP) for long distance SAN extension or iSCSI for cost-effective SAN expansion. As the storage network expands, Cisco MDS 9000 Family modules can be migrated from the Cisco MDS 9216i into Cisco MDS 9500 Series Multilayer Directors, providing smooth migration, common sparing, and outstanding investment protection.
