PCIe3 LP 4-port (10 Gb FCoE and 1 GbE) Copper and RJ45 Adapter (FC EN0L;
CCIN 2CC1)
Learn about the specifications and operating system requirements for the feature code (FC) EN0L adapter.
Overview
The PCIe3 LP 4-port (10 Gb FCoE and 1 GbE) Copper and RJ45 Adapter is a PCI Express (PCIe)
generation 3, low-profile adapter. The adapter has four-ports and is a Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)
converged network adapter (CNA). This adapter provides a PCIe 3.0 host bus interface. The adapter is a
high-performance adapter that consolidates traffic for networking and Fibre Channel storage. The adapter
is optimized for cloud computing, virtualization, storage, and other data center applications. Both the
FCoE and network interface controller (NIC) functions are available for all the four ports. Use of the
FCoE requires that you use convergence enhanced Ethernet (CEE) switches. The link aggregation and
failover features of the adapter make it suitable for critical network applications that require redundancy
and high availability.
Important: There is no FCoE support on POWER9 systems.
The four-port adapter provides two 10 Gb FCoE Copper Twin-axial ports and two 1 Gb RJ45 Ethernet
ports. The two 10 Gb FCoE ports are connected by little connector-type (LC) connectors. Each FCoE port
provides Ethernet connectivity with a nominal data rate of 10 Gbps (gigabits per second). Each of the 1
Gb ports provides Ethernet connectivity at a data rate of 1 Gbps and is connected with Ethernet cables. A
10 Mb data rate is not supported. Figure 72 on page 161 shows the FC EN0L adapter.
Restriction: The 1 Gb Ethernet ports do not support data rates of 10 Mbps (megabits per second).
The adapter provides the following features:
v The adapter supports all Fibre Channel and Ethernet topologies.
v The 10 Gb SFP+ ports can function in the NIC or FCoE mode.
v The adapter supports the SR-IOV (Single Root I/O Virtualization) NIC capability.
v The adapter can function as a Boot adapter.
