Data Center Bridging (DCB)

The term “data center bridging” (DCB) refers to a collection of proposed standards designed to transform Ethernet into a lossless network with efficient Layer 2 multipath forwarding. DCB (formerly called converged enhanced Ethernet [CEE]) depends on a handful of standards that are being developed by three different standards bodies: the American National Standards Institute, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). It is also known as Data Center Ethernet (DCE).
