8GB Intelligent FC Pass-through Module
  Seamless integration into existing FC storage networks
8GB Intelligent FC Pass-through Module
The Intelligent Fibre Channel Pass-through Module provides seamless integration of Bull Blade Series into existing Fibre Channel Networks using N Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) technology. The pass-Through Module provides the advantages of FC switches and a pass-through module combined, in a very cost effective manner.
