PCIE Server NIC card Application

  • PCI-E NIC Cards provide redundant connectivity to ensure an uninterrupted network connection.

  • PCI-E NIC Cards are ideal for VM environments with multiple operating systems, requiring shared or dedicated NICs.

  • They are specially designed for desktop PC clients, servers, and workstations with few PCI Express slots available.

PCI Express LP 8G 2-Port Fibre Channel Adapter Overview


The IBM PCIe LP 8Gb 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 8Gbps. 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.

For normally operating this 8G 2-Port Fibre Channel Adapter, you may need fiber optical cables or twinax cables. To supply cables is our responsibility for the customer. Use multimode fiber optic cables with shortwave lasers that adhere to the following specifications:


OM3: Multimode 50/125 micron fiber, 2000 MHz x km bandwidth

OM2: Multimode 50/125 micron fiber, 500 MHz x km bandwidth

OM1: Multimode 62.5/125 micron fiber, 200 MHz x km bandwidth


Because core sizes are different, OM1 cables can only be connected to other OM1 cables. For best results, OM2 cables should not be connected to OM3 cables. However, if an OM2 cable is connected to an OM3 cable, the characteristics of the OM2 cable apply to the entire length of the cables.


The following table shows the supported distances for the three different cable types at the three different link speeds.


Table 1. Supported distances for cables

Header Cable Type and Distance
Rate OM1 OM2 OM3
2.125Gbps 0.5 meters to 150 meters (1.64 feet to 492.12 feet) 0.5 meters to 300 meters (1.64 feet to 984.25 feet) 0.5 meters to 500 meters (1.64 feet to 1640.41 feet)
4.25Gbps 0.5 meters to 70 meters (1.64 feet to 229.65 feet) 0.5 meters to 150 meters (1.64 feet to 492.12 feet) 0.5 meters to 380 meters (1.64 feet to 1246.71 feet)
8.5Gbps 0.5 meters to 21 meters (1.64 feet to 68.89 feet) 0.5 meters to 50 meters (1.64 feet to 164.04 feet) 0.5 meters to 150 meters (1.64 feet to 492.12 feet)
