"This book is a reflection of the developments I've personally seen in working with a number of industry associations as well as daily customer contacts with many of the world's most advanced SAN environments," said Scott Kipp, McDATA Standards Engineer. "The book details new advancements that will further enrich the Fibre Channel architecture, providing administrators with even more powerful Fibre Channel networking tools."

In addition to his work with ANSI, he has developed standards in multiple other organizations including the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), Small Form Factor (SFF) Committee and Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA).
Scott Kipp has written three books on storage networking, one book of broadband entertainment and numerous magazine articles over the course of his career. He has a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, CA.
