Abstract
This suite of tests has been developed to help implementers identify problems that Fibre Channel devices may have in establishing link and exchanging packets with each other. The tests do not determine if a product conforms to the T11 Standards. Rather, they provide one method to verify that the two devices can exchange packets within the bit error ratio specifications established by the FC-PI-2 standard when operating over various channels. The interoperability test suite focuses on two areas of functionality to simulate a real-world environment: the exchange of packets to produce a packet error ratio that is low enough to meet a desired bit error ratio, and the ability to detect and establish a link at the optimal speed between two devices that make up a link segment.
