ISO/IEC 14165-372:2011(E) is intended to document interoperability behaviour for Fabric elements (i.e., E_Port, F_Port, FL_Port). It includes a wide range of issues such as link initialization, error detection, error recovery, fabric operation, management capabilities, and zoning. It serves as an implementation guide, whose primary objective is to maximize the likelihood of interoperability between conforming implementations. It specifies common methodologies for both Arbitrated Loop and Switched environments. The goal of this technical report is to facilitate interoperability between devices whether they are connected in a loop or Fabric topology.
