FibreConnect 1612-D00

16Gb/s Fibre Channel Switch with single power supply

Model No. FCSW-1612-D00

The ATTO FibreConnect™ 1612-D00 16Gb/s Fibre Channel switch provides flexibility, simplicity, and enterprise-level functionality for small to mid-range SANs to enable high performance and low latency collaborative workflows. It is available in a 12-port configuration with a single power supply and an optional 12-port expansion to extend your switch to 24 ports. FibreConnect is an affordable solution for consolidating storage on a SAN, which increases productivity and allows multiple users to more efficiently share resources.

The FibreConnect 1612-D00 uses the 16Gb/s 12-port upgrade kit, Model No. U012.


The FibreConnect™ 1612-D00 switch is easy to deploy, manage and integrate into both new and existing SANs while delivering exceptional performance and functionality. It combines auto-sensing 2, 4, 8, and 16Gb/s Fibre Channel throughput with features that greatly enhance workflow processes. With Ports on Demand, scalable from 12 to 24-ports, FibreConnect enables organizations to grow their storage networks when necessary in a non-disruptive manner.


  • Max fabric latency: 700 ns; Forward Error Correction (FEC) adds 400 ns between E_Ports (enabled by default).
  • Aggregate bandwidth: 384 Gbps end-to-end (24 ports)
  • ISL Trunking options: Exchanged-based trunking is standard with no limit to how many trunk groups can be configured. Frame-based trunking is an optional upgrade with up to eight 16Gb/s ports per ISL trunk.
  • Port Speeds: Auto-sensing of 2, 4, 8, and 16Gb/s; optionally programmable to fixed port speed; speed matching between 2, 4 and 8Gb/s.
  • Single FOS fabric: 56 domains, 19 hops
  • Switch mode (default): 12-, and 24-port configurations (12-port increments through Ports On Demand licenses); universal (E, F, M, D) ports
  • Port Types: D_Port (Diagnostic Port), E_Port, F_Port, M_Port (Mirror Port); self-discovery based on switch type (U_Port); optional Access Gateway ports mode: F_Port and NPIV-enabled N_Port
