IBM Converged Switch B32

This IBM® Redbooks® document introduces the IBM Converged Switch B32. This switch supports Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), Fibre Channel, Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE), and traditional Ethernet protocol connectivity for servers and storage. FCoE is a new protocol that can expand Fibre Channel into the Ethernet environment, and it helps to combine and leverage the advantages of two technologies, Fibre Channel protocol and Ethernet.

Features of the IBM Converged Switch B32 include:


  • A 32-port multiprotocol switch for server I/O consolidation
  • Enterprise-class availability for business continuance
  • Improved return on investment and investment protection
  • Fabric security for mission-critical information


In the related publication An Introduction to Fibre Channel over Ethernet, and Fibre Channel over Convergence Enhanced Ethernet, REDP-4493 we introduce FCoE and CEE concepts.
