Protocols supported by a SmartIO card
SmartIO card supports 8 Gbit/s Fibre Channel, 16 Gbit/s Fibre Channel, 10 Gbit/s FCoE, 10GE, and iWARP. However, Fibre Channel cannot co-work with FCoE or 10GE on the same card.

Whether SmartIO cards have licenses restricting protocol switching and whether the onsite optical module must be replaced
The SmartIO card has no license restriction on protocol switching. The optical module of the corresponding protocol needs to be replaced on site. You must choose one from the 16 Gbit/s Fibre Channel and 10GE optical modules to match the protocol. The protocol type is set before delivery.

Desktop protocols and major vendors
Desktop connection protocols enable users to remotely access virtual desktops on the cloud platform from terminals. Desktops are delivered to remote monitors, and peripherals connected to terminals are mapped to virtual desktops based on related policies, which provide optimal experience for desktop users. Desktop protocols are the key to desktop user experience. Popular desktop protocols in the industry include ICA/HDX (Citrix), PCoIP (VMware), RDP (Microsoft), and SPICE (Red Hat). Huawei uses Huawei Desktop Protocol (HDP).

IAD can register to other manufacturers of soft switching equipment
IAD supports soft docking with other vendors. IAD supports the standard SIP protocol and the MGCP protocol, as long as the Softswitch device using the standard SIP or MGCP protocol, IAD can register.

Whether the bearer protocols of a predefined application used as a match condition and referenced by a policy shall also be referenced by the policy
Yes. If a predefined application is referenced in a policy as a match condition and the predefined application has a bearer protocol, the bearer protocol must also be referenced in the policy. For example, BT is referenced in a policy as a match condition, the policy must also reference its bearer protocol HTTP. For application and bearer protocol information, see http://sec.huawei.com. When you download the SA signature database, you can download the signature database description file to understand the relationship between the application and bearer protocol.
