10 Gbit/s TOE ports are connected to 10GE switches while 10 Gbit/s FCoE ports are connected to FCoE switches.

Application scenario differences between 10 Gbit/s TOE ports and 10GE ports
Both 10 Gbit/s TOE ports and 10GE ports provide high bandwidth for file services. In scenarios where many CPU resources are occupied, you are advised to use TOE ports to reduce the CPU resources that are occupied for network processing.

Differences between the two-port FCoE interface module and four-port FCoE interface module
Two-port FCoE VN2VN interface modules can be directly connected. They can be connected to the lossless Ethernet switches but cannot be connected to FCoE switches. Four-port FCoE VN2VF interface modules cannot be directly connected and must be connected to the FCoE switch for use. They cannot be connected to lossless Ethernet switches. Take note of these differences when configuring the FCoE interface module.
