This part of ISO/IEC 14165 describes generic
requirements for a communications transport
medium called the Fabric, an entity that provides
switched interconnect between pairs of
user attachment points. Fabrics may be implemented
using one or more topologies and this
document describes requirements that are generic
across all topologies.
A companion document, ISO/IEC 14165-111,
Fibre Channel - Physical and Signaling Interface
(FC-PH), describes the physical interface,
transmission protocol, and signaling protocol of
high-performance serial links which attach user
nodes to the Fabric. The Fabric serves to extend
these serial links between pairs of attachment
points. ISO/IEC 14165-111, FC-PH also
describes features and behaviors of the Fabric
required by user nodes.
