The IBM Converged Switch B32 provides a reliable platform that helps reduce cable clutter, equipment
acquisition costs, and operational costs associated with power consumption and cooling. This unique
top-of-rack switch features a low-profile 1U form factor and low power consumption (a maximum 350
watts), leading the way toward a "greener" data center.
The IBM Converged Switch B32 features 8 Fibre Channel ports along with 24 ports for 10 Gigabit
Ethernet. The Fibre Channel ports operate at 8 Gbps, and the 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports support
Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE) and are capable of transporting both storage and LAN traffic,
eliminating the need for separate SAN and LAN adapters.
To support the most data-intensive applications, the IBM Converged Switch B32 is designed to deliver a
non-blocking architecture.
The top-of-rack IBM Converged Switch B32 connects to servers through Converged Network Adapters
(CNAs). The consolidated SAN and LAN server ports and corresponding cables simplify configuration
and cabling in server cabinets to reduce acquisition costs. With fewer components using power or
requiring cooling, organizations can save significant operating costs as well.
FCoE preserves Fibre Channel constructs and services. It integrates seamlessly into existing Fibre
Channel environments, enabling organizations to maximize the value of their current investments. In
addition, FCoE extends the reach of Fibre Channel management applications and tools, enabling
organizations to manage FCoE-attached devices with their existing Storage Area Network (SAN)
management applications.
The switch utilizes ASIC technology that supports port trunking for Fibre Channel and link aggregation
for Ethernet. For Fibre Channel, an Inter-Switch Link (ISL) trunk can supply up to 64 Gbps of balanced
data throughput. In addition to reducing congestion and increasing bandwidth, ISL Trunking utilizes
http://www-01.ibm.com/common/ssi/PrintableVersion.jsp?&docURL=/common/ssi/rep_sm... 8/7/2009
US - IBM Converged Switch B32
Page 3 of 19
ISLs more efficiently to preserve the number of usable switch ports. For Ethernet, the IBM Converged
Switch B32 supports standards-based Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP).
Additional performance capabilities include 32 virtual channels on each ISL, enabling antistarvation
capabilities at the port level to avoid performance degradation. In addition, exchange-based Dynamic
Path Selection (DPS) optimizes fabric-wide performance and load balancing by automatically routing
data to the most efficient available path in the fabric. DPS further augments ISL Trunking to provide
more effective load balancing in certain configurations.
The IBM Converged Switch B32 provides a reliable foundation for disaster recovery and business
continuance by employing enterprise-class availability features such as hot-swappable, redundant, and
integrated fan and power supply assemblies. Combined with a wide range of diagnostic and monitoring
functions, these capabilities help ensure highly available SAN environments.
In conjunction with Brocade SAN extension products, the IBM Converged Switch B32 enables servers
and storage devices to reside remotely, giving organizations a reliable way to create highly available
environments that support the most sophisticated business continuance and disaster recovery initiatives.
The IBM Converged Switch B32 utilizes the same Brocade Fabric operative system that supports the
entire IBM b-type Fibre Channel product family, from fixed port switches to the SAN768B Fabric
Backbone. This helps ensure backward compatibility that enables the IBM Converged Switch B32 to
seamlessly integrate with existing Fibre Channel investments.
This design also enables forward compatibility among Brocade solutions, simplifying maintenance and
field upgrades while providing peace of mind for future data center expansion. Moreover, organizations
can monitor and manage the IBM Converged Switch B32 with fabric robust management applications
such as the IBM Data Center Fabric Manager (DCFM).
By networking Fibre Channel switches and the IBM Converged Switch B32 under a common
management platform, Fabric OS simplifies management through standard interfaces and support for
third-party management applications. The IBM Converged Switch B32 supports switch management
through a Command Line Interface (CLI), Web Tools, or DCFM, which includes support for FCoE and
CEE.
The IBM Converged Switch B32 is designed for the highest level of fabric security to help organizations
safeguard their critical information. It utilizes Advanced Zoning as well as advanced port and switch
Access Control Lists (ACLs) to simplify administration and significantly increase control over data
access. To simplify management access security, the IBM Converged Switch B32 supports Active
Directory with LDAP.

Operating Environment
Software Requirements
Limitations
The IBM Converged Switch B32 (3758-B32) is a 24-port 10 GbE line-rate, low latency lossless
Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE) and an 8-port auto-sensing 1, 2, 4, or 8 Gbps Fibre Channel switch
that delivers the latest ASIC technology and architecture for Fibre Channel Storage Area Networks
(SANs). The B32 enables the Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) protocol and is a high performance 8
Gbps Fibre Channel switch designed for the needs of enterprise environments that require a high-port
footprint for port aggregation and yet desire the simplified management environment that comes with
reducing the total number of domains to manage.
The B32 supplies Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability (RAS) performance and scalability
requirements of an enterprise switch along with the interoperability and ease-of-use advantages found in
the IBM b-type product family.
The IBM Converged Switch B32 system is a 1U height rack mount switch is designed to provide top-ofrack connectivity to servers and storage using FC and FCoE protocols. Each FC port offers auto sensing
and self-negotiating to the highest speed (1, 2, 4, or 8 Gbps) supported by the attached server, storage, or
switch, as well as self-configuration as F_ports, FL_ports, E_ports. The CEE ports operate at 1 GE line
speed.
The 3758-B32 enclosure contains the system boards and two hot swappable, redundant power supply
FRUs, and three redundant fan FRUs. The system will continue to operate in the event of a single power
supply failure. The three fan FRUs, each with two fan units, are designed as hot swappable in a
redundant n+1 configuration to ensure that the 3758-B32 will continue to operate continuously and nondisruptively in the event of a single fan FRU failure.
The cabinet-mountable 1U chassis is designed to be mounted in a 19-in cabinet space, with forced-air
cooling that flows from the non-port side of the switch to the port side.
Physical Specifications
The IBM Converged Switch B32 can be mounted in a 19-inch Electronic Industries Association (EIA)
rack using the rail kit provided with each enclosure. The optional Mid-mount Rack Kit (#5910) enables
installation of a 3758-B32 in a Telco rack. In addition, the IBM Converged Switch B32 can be used in a
tabletop configuration.

Feature Descriptions
Feature descriptions for IBM Converged Switch B32
Each switch is delivered with all ports activated in the base; however IBM does not include SFPs within
the base product. The 8 CEE ports and minimum 8 of the Fibre Channel ports must be populated with
SFPs at the time of the initial order. Any combination of supported short wave and/or long wave SFPs
may be ordered at the time of initial purchase, or when additional ports are populated with SFPs. This
switch uses hot- pluggable, industry-standard Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP), LC connector fiber
optic transceivers, supporting Short-Wave Length (SWL), Long-Wave Length (LWL), SFP+. Actual
distance depends on fiber-optic cables and port speed.
Transceivers - Twinax
10 Gbps SFP+ Twinax Direct-Attach Copper is direct-attach cable that can connect directly into SFP+
housings at both ends. They support 10 Gbps transmission. Twinax has the advantages of low power,
low cost and low latency. The SFP+ copper cable assembly is a high performance integrated duplex
serial data link for bi-directional communications. It is designed for high speed data rates supporting
applications such as Fibre Channel, and Gigabit Ethernet. The hot pluggable feature allows changing
to/from another SFP+ compatible module without having to remove system power.
(#2711) TWINAX ACTIVE 1 m
(#2731) TWINAX ACTIVE 3 m
(#2751) TWINAX ACTIVE 5 m
Summary: These optional features provide 10 Gbps SFP+ Twinax Direct-Attach Copper cables to be
used with the 24 CEE ports.
