Southland Corporation moved to compel arbitration based on an arbitration clause found in all of the franchise agreements that required any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the agreement or breach thereof to be arbitrated
The controller is compliant with Fibre Channel topologies, including Fibre Channel Arbitrated
Loop-2, Fibre Channel Private Loop Direct Attach, and Fabric Loop Attachment and supports the Fibre Channel Tape Profile (FC-Tape).
Stability is a major issue affecting private arbitrated
loops because each device must communicate with every other device on the loop to get and maintain its address.
Fibre Channel arbitrated
loop can support up to 126 devices within a single loop.
Snap-on Incorporated (NYSE: SNA) announced today that it did not prevail in a long-standing matter being arbitrated
with SPX Corporation.
loop and fabrics; between different operating systems and SAN storage resources; and between different higher level applications within a SAN environment are all technical issues that must be resolved before customers can deploy storage networks on a large scale.
As far as connectivity is concerned, the Scalar storage networking libraries raise the bar for the industry by performing all the protocol management needed between drives and the network -- whether it is SCSI, switched fabric, arbitrated
loop, 1 Gb or 2 Gb interface.
Additionally, the product configures to meet all FCS modes of operation, including arbitrated
loop, point-to-point, and fabric/switch networked storage.
Within the RS-1600-FFX2, each SANArray(TM) FFx-2 controller provides two 2Gb Fibre-Channel ports, which can auto negotiate for connection to 1Gb and 2Gb host adapters supporting Fibre-Channel Arbitrated
Loop (FC-AL) or point to point connections.
In addition, the SAN switches introduce the industry's first software-upgradeable loop switch to connect Arbitrated
Loop storage devices and servers in a SAN.
NYSE:EMC) has qualified JNI's Emerald(TM)-based FibreStar FCE-1063 SBus-to-Fibre Channel host bus adapters (HBAs) as "E-Lab Tested" for use in EMC Enterprise Storage Network (ESN) switched fabric and arbitrated
loop environments running the Sun Solaris operating system.
The VSC7192 is a 12 Channel Fibre Channel Arbitrated
Loop (FC-AL) switch IC that delivers advanced diagnostics and low latency for embedded applications, such as disk arrays, RAID subsystems and standalone switches.
Fibre Channel standards define multiple topologies including point to point, arbitrated
loop and full fabric, but virtually all of the initial and current deployments of the technology use point to point or the loop topology.
It complies with all Fibre Channel topologies (switched fabric, arbitrated
loop and point-to-point), and supports Class 3 standards for data delivery, the de facto standard in the industry today.
Bergen opposed Counsel's motion to compel arbitration but indicated that it might agree to arbitrate the accounting issues raised in the lawsuit if it could significantly expand the number and type of accounting issues to be arbitrated
