ISL

Hi Guys,

Can I setup the ISL between two SAN switches not from direct fiber connection? The fiber connection from source SAN switch will go through to fiber patch panel then go through to target SAN switch. The distance between these two SAN switches is approx 300 meter.

N/A

Hi,

You configure to same way to configure ISL switch/switch.

Ok

Thanks Gerson,

How about the performance compare to direct fiber cable connection? Will this setup create the bottleneck on the patch panel?

Re: ISL

Not sure what you mean with bottleneck in the patchpanel, but performance should be the same.

Should be because every patch adds signal degredation to some degree.

Assually not that much that the signal drops to a lower speed level, but that depends an distance, desired speed and quality off your gear.

Hi, there is no relation between the perfomance and the patch-panel. There is a little degradation of the signal when using the patch-panel, but if the infrastructure is fine, the performance will be the same. If there is a bottleneck, it won't be because of the patch-panel.
