Fibre Channel History Fibre Channel had its beginnings in the late 1980s as a follow on interface development for the ANSI X3T9.3 (now X3T11) subcommittee. This same group developed the IPI (Intelligent Peripheral Interface) and HPPI (High Perfor- mance Parallel Interface) standards during the mid 1980s. Even at this time the handwriting was on the wall for the earlier channels in use within the computer industry. Processor technology was improving at a logarithmic rate. Storage densi- ties (and required transfer rates) were following a similar curve. These previous bottlenecks to computer performance no longer existed. The bottleneck had moved to the I/O channel.
