Abstract
Enterprise Systems Connection Architecture TM (ESCON) is a new IBMTM input/output (I/O) and interconnection architecture. Fiber Channel is an ANSI X3T9.3 draft standard which describes a high-performance serial link for support of higher-layer protocols associated with HIPPI, IPI, SCSI, and others. The two interfaces share many characteristics. This presentation focuses on the differences.
