LightSand Connectivity Solutions

LightSand has developed a number of SAN interconnectivity products which can help you connect multiple sites, protect critical data, optimize network infrastructure and reduce TCO.

LightSand provides a family of gateways that addresses the growing problem of connecting remote SAN locations over distance. There are many ways to move Fibre Channel or FICON data over metropolitan and wide area networks: FC/FICON and Ethernet Layer 2 over SONET/SDH, IP, Dark Fiber and Dedicated Fiber. LightSand offers products that address all of these protocols. Our products can route your FC or FICON data together with Ethernet Layer 2 data over MAN/WAN networks at speeds ranging from DSL to SONET OC-48 (2.5Gb/s).
