FCIP
Last modified: Friday, December 26, 2003 

Short for Fibre Channel over IP, a network storage technology that combines the features of Fibre Channel and the Internet Protocol (IP) to connect distributed SANs over large distances.

FCIP encapsulates Fibre Channel and transports it over a TCP socket. FCIP is considered a tunneling protocol, as it makes a transparent point-to-point connection between geographically separated SANs over IP networks. FCIP relies on TCP/IP services to establish connectivity between remote SANs over LANs, MANs, or WANs. TCP/IP is also responsible for congestion control and management, as well as for data error and data loss recovery.

An advantage of FCIP is that it can use TCP/IP as the transport while keeping Fibre Channel fabric services intact.
