Fault-Tolerant - A method of making a network system or a computer resistant to software errors, hardware problems or power failures.
FibreChannel - Fibre Channel is a technology for transmitting data between computer devices at a data rate of up to 1 Gbps (one billion bits per second). (A data rate of 4 Gbps is proposed.) Fibre Channel is especially suited for connecting computer servers to shared storage devices and for interconnecting storage controllers and drives.
Frame Relay - Wideband, packet-based interface used to transmit bursts of data over a wide-area network. Seldom used for voice.
