16 Port, 4GB Fibre Channel Switch


EMC Connectrix MP-7500B

Mult-Protocol SAN Router

The EMC® Connectrix® MP-7500B router combines Fibre Channel connectivity with routing services and performance-optimized FCIP. Fibre Channel Routing Services provide a seamless way to share resources such as tape drives or storage arrays across multiple SANs without the complexity of physically merging those SANs. Thi greatly improves resource sharing, simplifies management, and reduces the overall complexity of the SAN. The MP-7500B supports multiple applications for SAN extension and disaster recovery, including EMC Symmetrix® Remote Data Facility (SRDF®), MirrorView™, and SAN Copy™-based replication solutions.
