I have B/T devices daisy chained via an IBM 9034 converter. Can I continue to daisy chain with ESBT?
Possibly. Because the ESBT converter technology is different, there are new considerations for daisy-chaining, including the potential for performance impacts. Certain B/T device types are known to cause performance impacts in a daisy chained environment with ESBT, thus Optica recommends that only one B/T device be attached to an ESBT generally speaking. This said, there are certain device types that have proven not to be a problem when daisy-chained behind ESBT. Because each case can be unique in various ways, customers should consult with Optica and provide the manufacturer and model of the B/T devices that they require support for when considering their Prizm/ESBT requirements.
