fabric port (FC) (F_Port)

With Fibre Channel(FC), the FC ports are identified by the notation Name_Identifier. The various FC ports differ in terms of the scope of functions from the protocol on the interface.

The F_Port is the fabricport within a Fibre Channel fabric that supports a point-to-point connection to an N_Port. F_Ports are intermediate ports in an end-to-end virtual connection. For example, the N_Port to F_Port to F_Port to N_Port connection uses a single FC switch. The F port uses the hexadecimal address FFFFFE.
