I-TECH Introduces Fibre Channel Analysis Solution

I-TECH today introduced the Satellite(TM) IFC-4032 Fibre Channel Analyzer, which provides SAN performance, maintenance, and diagnostic analysis with 32 cooperative test points at transfer rates of 1 or 2 Gbps.

"The IFC-4016 has been extremely well received in the development market. Customers in both the development and the SAN market told us that they wanted the same level of intelligence and multi-channel functionality in a small foot-print, higher density package," said I-TECH Product Manager Tom Robinson. "We heard what our customers said and have responded by doubling the capability. There is no other product on the market that matches the IFC-4032's level of flexibility in high density analysis, performance monitoring and fault isolation."

According to the company, the IFC-4032 manages data from 32 independent channels and 64 cooperative processors. A patented hardware search capability, combined with 320 megabytes (MB) of on-board trace memory per channel, allows users to view customized trace displays without post processing and lengthy downloads. Full trace searches for user-specified frames, primitives, transmission errors, time stamps, bookmarks and trigger events are typically, I-TECH claims, completed within one second.
