Fibre Channel

Fibre Channel is a communications standard featuring efficient and fast transfer of the large data volumes required by financial institutions, data centers, etc.

Recently, so called cloud services have become increasingly popular for storing data in data centers for access via networks, generating increased demand for Fibre Channel tests. Anritsu’s Fibre Channel test function is designed to meet this need.


Fibre Channel (FC) is a data communication protocol, or a transport mechanism that transports information between two end points. FC securely, quickly, and efficiently sends/receives data between a computer (host) and a storage device that is typically a disk or disk array; the host can be any computer from a desktop PC to large server or mainframe.

The FC protocol encapsulates other protocols (primarily SCSI – Small Computer System Interface), allowing the host to store and retrieve data to/from the storage device.
