The FibreConnect 1612 12-Port 16 Gb/s Fibre Channel Switch from ATTO Technology provides flexibility, simplicity, and enterprise-level functionality for small to mid-range SANs to enable high performance and low latency collaborative workflows. It has 24 ports, 12 of which are active, enabling organizations to expand their storage network when necessary in a non-disruptive manner. This FibreConnect switch is an affordable solution for consolidating storage on a SAN, which increases productivity and allows multiple users to more efficiently share media resources.
The FibreConnect switch is easy to deploy, manage, and integrate into both new and existing SANs, while delivering exceptional performance and functionality. This switch combines auto-sensing 2, 4, 8, and 16 Gb/s Fibre Channel throughput with features that greatly enhance workflow processes. It also allows users to handle the ever-increasing digital footprint seen in applications such as 4K video editing, oil and gas exploration, scientific and medical research, and complex databases.
