Switch offerings as well as Port-on-Demand upgrade kits bundled with 64Gb optics.
HPE B-series Gen7 64Gb Fibre Channel Switch technology enables organizations to realize a self-learning, self-optimizing, and self-healing autonomous SAN.
HPE B-series Gen7 64Gb FC Switch technology combines powerful analytics and advanced automation capabilities to accelerate data access, adapt to evolving requirements, and drive 24x7 operations.
Increase Performance for Application and Solid State Storage Architectures
With 56 SFP+ ports, it can scale up to 56 device ports for an aggregate throughput of 3.584Tb/s. 
Improved performance of NVMe storage with 50% lower switching latency than 32Gb. Latency for locally switched ports is 460 ns including forward error correction (FEC). 
The HPE B-series SN6700B Fibre Channel Switch delivers increased performance through a combination of improved throughput and low latency across 64Gb links in hyper-scale virtualization, large cloud infrastructures, and growing flash-based storage environments.
Ultra-dense and Highly Scalable
Each of the 56 SFP+ ports supports 8, 10, 16, 32, and 64Gb FC speeds.
The HPE B-series SN6700B Fibre Channel Switch scales up to 56 FC ports in an efficiently designed 1U form factor, delivering increased port density and space utilization for simplified scalability.
Provides flexibility to utilize high-speed 64Gb and 32Gb optics on demand to meet growing data center needs and provide backward compatibility to older infrastructures.
