Demartek Publishes Cisco Multi-Protocol and Multi-Topology Latency Evaluation

ARVADA, CO--(Marketwire - Jul 23, 2012) - Demartek announces its evaluation of latency measurements in Cisco multi-protocol and multi-topology environments. This evaluation included three different Cisco switches configured in single-hop and multi-hop network topologies, running Fibre Channel, FCoE and iSCSI storage traffic.

"We found that the average latency was consistent for each protocol, regardless of the network topology," said Dennis Martin, Demartek President. "With the topologies and switches that were tested, we found complete flexibility in the ability to design the network to handle native Fibre Channel, FCoE and iSCSI traffic."

The full report is available at on the Demartek website. This report is part of a series of reports that are available in the Demartek FC Zone (, Demartek FCoE Zone ( and the Demartek iSCSI Zone ( on the Demartek website.
