Topology diagram of a Fibre Channel Point-to-Point connection

Fibre Channel point-to-point (FC-P2P) is a Fibre Channel topology where exactly two ports (devices) are directly connected to each other.

  • It is the simplest topology, no network addressing is needed, because each message has only one possible receiver.
  • The bandwidth is dedicated.
  • Point-to-point uses N_port.
