The FC EL2N is a low-profile adapter. The PCIe LP 8 Gb 2-Port Fibre Channel Adapter is a
high-performance adapter based on the Emulex LPe12002 PCIe Host Bus Adapter (HBA). Each port
provides single initiator capability over a fiber link. The ports have LC type connectors that use
shortwave laser optics. The adapter connects to Fibre Channel switches and operates at link speeds of 2,
4, and 8 Gbps. The adapter automatically negotiates with the switch to the highest speed that the switch
is capable of. LEDs on each port provide information about the status and link speed of the port.
N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) capability is supported through Virtual I/O Server (VIOS).
