Meaning of the CX31x converged switching
Converged switching (which is not strictly defined) indicates the switching that adopts DCB Ethernet switches that support FCoE traffic and E9000 CX310, CX311, and CX312 converged switch modules. Converged networking (which is not strictly defined) indicates the Ethernet networking in the server field that bears the traditional Ethernet data traffic and FCoE traffic. This Ethernet networking must be based on the DCB feature.
