cisco MDS 9418 switch doubt

Hi Team,

We have an issue, whether the cisco MDS 9418 switch supports FCIP feature.

We are planning to migrate the data from our old data center over WAN to the EMC VNX storage box in other location.

In our old data center we have 2 FC cisco switches connected to the EMC clariion storage array. Inorder to replicate data from clariion box to EMC VNX box over WAN ,it can be done via FCIP.

I wanted to know if we can use insert the FCIP converters into these MDS 9418 switch or do we need to have separate FCIP converters.

Do we need FCIP converters on both sides for doing replication over FCIP.

For clear understanding please see the attachment.

Will waiting for your response......

Regards,

Pranav.

Hi,

Since the 9148 does not have IP interfaces, something will be needed to tunnel the FC into IP (FCIP) such as an MDS 9222i, which has both FC interfaces and GigE interfaces and supports FCIP.

Regards,

David
