External storage configuration examples

Attention:

A four-digit feature code is used to specify a component that is configurable in the IBM configurators, the eBusiness Configurator (eConfig) and the IBM Web-based Hardware Configurator, used in US and Canada. Options that do not have feature codes cannot be integrated by IBM into a system using these IBM configurators. To purchase options separately, refer to the option part number provided in this document.

The following sample configurations are for illustration only and may not be suitable for any specific customer installation. Contact your IBM Business Partner or IBM Marketing Representative for assistance with your specific configuration requirements.

Table 1. Cable Group legend
Cable Group A (0.8mm to 0.8mm)

Cable Group SW (short-wave)
19K1247 1m LC-LC Fibre Channel cable
19K1248 5m LC-LC Fibre Channel cable
19K1249 25m LC-LC Fibre Channel cable
Cable Group LW (long-wave)1
- Customer supplied

Note:

  1. Customer-supplied cables of longer lengths can be used. Short-wave supports up to 500m. Long-wave supports up to 10km.


The illustration below shows what a typical solution might look like in terms of where short-wave and long-wave cables would be used. Actual implementation may vary based on individual hardware.
