Fibre Channel:    A set of standards for a serial I/O bus capable of transferring data between two ports at up to 1,000 MBytes/second, with standards proposals to go to higher speeds. Fibre Channel supports point-to-point, arbitrated loop, and switched topologies. Fibre Channel was completely developed through industry cooperation, unlike SCSI, which was developed by a vendor and submitted for standardization after the fact.
