Title: Fibre Channel Development Final Report CRADA No. TC-0340-92-A

Abstract

In 1992, Fibre Channel (FC) was an emerging American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standard for next generation computer networking and peripheral I/O. Industry had only a few prototype implementations of Fibre Channel products. FC testing centers had yet to exist. Competing standards existed for high speed networking (i.e. ATM) and alternative standards for peripheral channels and/or clustering interconnects (e.g. SCSI, IPI, IEEE 1394 Serial Bus and IEEE 1596 SCI) had many computer systems manufacturers and end-users in search of better methods for connecting larger and faster storage systems to computers and networks. This project was intended to give the principal US. participants a one-to two-year lead in developing heterogeneous high-speed computer networks and high-speed peripheral channels using this new FC standard.
