Upon completing this chapter, you will be able to:
Describe the physical layer characteristics of the SCSI parallel interface (SPI), Ethernet, and Fibre Channel (FC)
Relate the addressing schemes used by the SPI, Ethernet, and FC to the SCSI architecture model (SAM) addressing scheme
Differentiate the SPI, Ethernet, and FC mechanisms for name and address assignment and resolution
Explain how the SPI, Ethernet, and FC govern media access
Delineate the physical, logical, and virtual network boundaries observed by the SPI, Ethernet, and FC
List the frame formats of the SPI and deconstruct the frame formats of Ethernet and FC
Enumerate and describe the delivery mechanisms supported by the SPI, Ethernet, and FC ...
