Fibre Channel Interconnection Schemes

About This Committee

INCITS/Fibre Channel Interconnection Schemes is the Task Group within the INCITS/Fibre Channel Technical Committee responsible for all FC projects which define Fibre Channel encoding and protocols. It held its first meeting on April 23, 1998.

INCITS/Fibre Channel Interconnection Schemes defines the encoding and low level protocols which allow Fibre Channel to carry a broad set of upper level storage and networking protocols. Among these are FCP (SCSI), NVMe over FC, and FC-SB-6 (FICON). The goal of INCITS/Fibre Channel Interconnection Schemes is to provide a high performance, reliable, and low latency transport mechanism for upper level protocols.

Note: INCITS/Fibre Channel Interconnection Schemes was formerly known as INCITS/T11.3 until January 2022.
