FN2210s 4-port Combination Fibre Channel Ethernet IO Module
The FN I/O Module (FN IOM) is designed specifically for the PowerEdge FX2 converged-infrastructure platform, part of the PowerEdge FX architecture. Its simplified network management and configuration enable instant plug-and-play connectivity to the FX2. The FX2 converged infrastructure supports up to two FN IOMs. The FN IOMs include eight internal ports with the ability to reduce and simplify cabling to a single external port. The FN IOM also has a number of zero-touch and pre-configured features enabling easy network deployment. Through the Dell Blade IO Manager, users can utilize an intuitive GUI interface to configure and manage FN IOM switch functions without the complexity of a CLI.
- Four 10GBASE-T ports Supports copper media up to 100m
- The FN IOM simplifies FX2 connectivity by as much as 8-to1, greatly reducing cabling complexity. It provides simplified connectivity with your choice of external port configurations including four ports of SFP+, 10GBase-T, or a combination FN IOM with two ports of native Fiber Channel and two ports of SFP+. The combination Fiber Channel/SFP+ FN IOM allows for convergence directly in the FX2 platform, enabling native Fiber Channel connection directly to a Fiber Channel switch or direct connection F_port to a Fiber Channel storage array. The FN IOM includes eight 10GbE internal ports and supports uplinkport link aggregation group (LAG) and virtual link trunking (VLT).
- The FN IOM enhances east-west traffic flows within the FX2 enclosure for superior network performance and increased server-to-server communication, important for today’s virtualized environments. The FN IOM takes full advantage of high-performance 10GbE throughput, and next-generation PowerEdge servers and converged solutions for easy connection to high-density network architectures.
