A SAN allows a maximum of 239 switches. When more edge switches are required, NPV switches that do not consume domain IDs can be deployed.

Figure 2-8 NPV networking

As shown in Figure 2-8, an NPV switch is located at the edge of a fabric and between an ENode and an FCF. The NPV switch uses an F_Port to connect to an N_Port of an ENode and uses an NP_Port to connect to an F_Port of an FCF. The ENode connects to the fabric through the NPV switch, and the NPV switch forwards traffic from all ENodes to the core switch.

For an ENode, an NPV switch is an FCF that provides an F_Port. For an FCF, an NPV switch is an ENode that provides N_Port.
