Cisco UCS 2200 series Fabric Extender brings the unified fabric into the blade server enclosure, providing 80 Gigabit Ethernet connections between blade servers and the fabric interconnect, simplifying diagnostics, cabling, and management.

The Cisco UCS 2200 series extends the I/O fabric, enabling a lossless and deterministic Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) fabric to connect all blades and chassis together. Since the fabric extender is similar to a distributed line card, it does not perform any switching and is managed as an extension of the fabric interconnects. This approach removes switching from the chassis, reducing overall infrastructure complexity and enabling the Cisco unified computing system to scale many chassis without multiplying the number of switches needed, reducing TCO and allowing all chassis to be managed as a single, highly available management domain. The Cisco UCS 2200 series also manages the chassis environment (the power supply and fans as well as the blades) in conjunction with the
