Brocade ISL Trunking is an optional software product available for all Brocade 2 Gbit/sec Fiber Channel fabric switches. This new technology is ideal for optimizing performance and simplifying the management of a multiswitch SAN fabric containing Brocade 2 Gbit/sec switches. When two, three, or four adjacent ISLs are used to connect two switches, the switches automatically group the ISLs into a single logical ISL, or "trunk." The throughput of the resulting trunk is 4, 6, or 8 Gbit/sec.
