The HP 6120XG Blade Switch expands the HP Networking portfolio of converged network capabilities with functionality that is compliant with Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE) draft standards, provided with a CEE license. The convergence of storage Fibre Channel and Ethernet networking is enabled by a set of IEEE 802.1Q standards and devices that can transmit traffic for both networks over a single infrastructure. A c-class enclosure server blade with Converged Network Adapters (CNAs) and a 6120XG blade switch can be used to carry Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) traffic into a converged network.

This document is intended to demonstrate CEE functionality in the context of HP 6120XG Blade Switch deployment.
