The Cisco Nexus 5000 Series FCoE implementation could establish point-to-point FCoE links to first-generation converged network adapters (CNAs) without FIP, but FIP is required to build more complex topologies in which FCoE links can map to an Ethernet path that consists of more than one Ethernet link segment. The final revision of FC-BB-5 completed the definition of FIP and was soon followed by Cisco® NX-OS Software Release 4.1(3)N1(1), the first software release for the Cisco Nexus 5000 Series that offers FIP capabilities.
This document describes FIP as it is defined in FC-BB-5 and shows how FIP and FC-BB-5 map to the Cisco Nexus 5000 Series software implementation.
