The Emulex LPe16202-X Converged Fabric Adapter (CFA) is a new class of adapter that provides the flexibility to run Gen 5 (16Gb or 8Gb) Fiber Channel (FC), or 10GbE Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) connectivity with one adapter - meeting today's and tomorrow's connectivity needs while preserving IT investments. Changing fabric personalities is seamless via Plug-and-Play detection of SFP+ optical transceivers. Depending on which optical transceiver is installed, the CFA will intelligently know to run in FC or FCoE mode. In an Ethernet environment, the adapter provides full Ethernet (NIC) connectivity concurrently with FCoE. The LPe16202-X also supports direct attach copper (DAC) for 10GbE connectivity.
