Ethernet fabric devices all act as fcoe to fc gateways, so that the ethernet fabric itself is considered a virtual fcoe to fc gateway. Further, the ethernet fabric allows direct routing of fcoe packets from one fcoe device coupled to the ethernet fabric to another fcoe device coupled to the ethernet fabric..

Methods and apparatuses for automated tdm-ethernet provisioning
Apparatuses and methods are provided to assist telcos and other service providers with ethernet virtual circuit set up. A service provider need only set up ends of a path with a pair of units with automated private addressing, and designate one unit as a remote terminal and the other unit as a central office to ensure different addresses.

Credit-based flow control for multicast packets in lossless ethernet networks
Methods, systems, and computer program products presented herein provide for self-routing multicast. In one embodiment, a system includes a switch controller including a hardware processor and logic integrated with and/or executable by the processor, the logic being adapted to receive a multicast data stream join request from a source device in a network, create a multipath identifier (id) for the multipath data stream, create a series of path identifiers (ids) for each intermediate switch in the network based on a local network topology database, each path id being associated with a desired output port bitmap, and transmit the multipath id and a path id to a source of the multicast data stream, the path id corresponding to the source of the multicast data stream join request..

Credit-based flow control in lossless ethernet networks
In one embodiment, a system includes a hardware processor and logic integrated with and/or executable by the processor or media access control (mac) functionality of a network port, the logic being adapted to initialize a link between a receiving endpoint and a sending endpoint, the receiving and sending endpoints being connected in a network fabric, wherein at least one virtual link is created within the link, receive an amount of available flow credits from the receiving endpoint, wherein the amount of available flow credits are used to determine a capacity to process packets at the receiving endpoint, and transmit one or more packets to the receiving endpoint until all packets are sent or the amount of available flow credits is insufficient to process additional packets, wherein exchange of flow credits is performed on a per virtual link basis.. .
