275 15. Arbitrated Loop Hubs A Fibre Channel Arbitrated Loop Hub is a device for interconnecting arbitrated loop ports. There are a number of various hub types available today which represent different cost targets and design points.
Fibre Channel: The Preferred Performance Path Why people are choosing Fibre Channel A clear trend in realm of high-end storage interface technology is the growing adoption of Fibre Channel-Arbitrated Loop (FC-AL) technology.

L_Port A loop port is a port in a Fibre Channel Arbitrated Loop (FC-AL) topology. NL_Port A node loop port is an N_Port with loop capabilities. The port type is determined by the node's role in the topology, as shown in Figure4 on page5.
