IBM Redbooks Product Guide
The IBM Flex System™ EN2024 4-port 1Gb Ethernet Adapter is a quad-port Gigabit Ethernet network
adapter. When it is combined with the IBM Flex System EN2092 1Gb Ethernet Scalable Switch, clients
can leverage an end-to-end 1 Gb solution on the IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis. The EN2024
adapter is based on the Broadcom 5718 controller and offers a PCIe 2.0 x1 host interface with
MSI/MSI-X. It also supports I/O virtualization features like VMware NetQueue and Microsoft VMQ
technologies.
Figure 1 shows the adapter.
