2 Gigabit Fibre Channel PCI-X Adapter

Model: 6239

IBM - Host bus adapter - PCI-X low profile - Fibre Channel

The 2 Gigabit Fiber Channel PCI-X Adapter is a 64-bit address/data, short form factor PCI-X adapter with an LC type external fiber connector that provides single or dual initiator capability over an optical fiber link or loop. With the use of appropriate optical fiber cabling, this adapter provides the capability for a network of high-speed local and remote located storage. The 2 Gigabit Fiber Channel PCI-X Adapter will auto-negotiate for the highest data rate (either 1 Gbps or 2 Gbps) of which the device or switch is capable. Distances of up to 500 meters running at 1 Gbps data rate and up to 300 meters running at 2 Gbps data rate are supported between the adapter and an attaching device or switch. When used with IBM supported Fiber Channel storage switches supporting long-wave optics, distances of up to 10 kilometers are capable running at either 1 Gbps or 2 Gbps data rates.
