QLogic Transparent Router Feature

This table lists Brocade switch firmware that has been tested with the QLogic Transparent Router feature. QLogic Transparent Router enables QLogic 3810 and 5800 Series Switches to connect transparently to any Brocade switch that supports N_Port ID virtualization (NPIV). E_Port is not used for transparent connections; therefore full management capability is maintained for both Brocade and QLogic fabrics, and host and/or target devices may be shared selectively and securely in either direction.

Brocade Switch Firmware Tested with QLogic Transparent Router Feature

Brocade 7.0.0a

Brocade 6.4.2a

Brocade 6.4.1b

Brocade 6.3.1a

Brocade 6.2.2b

Table Notes

The QLogic Transparent Router feature is available on QLogic 3810 and 5800 Series Switches running QLogic firmware level 8.0.12.04 or later.
