The Broadcom LPE31002-M6 Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter (HBA) is a high-performance storage connectivity solution that provides fast and reliable data transfer for storage systems. It is designed to support 16GFC (16 Gigabit Fibre Channel) technology, which provides high-speed data transfer rates of up to 16 Gbps, allowing for faster data access and improved system performance. This makes it an ideal solution for data centers and other storage environments that require high-speed data transfer.
This HBA has 2 ports connectivity, which provides scalability and flexibility for storage systems. This allows the user to connect multiple storage devices at the same time, increasing storage capacity and improving data management and protection options. The ability to connect multiple storage devices at the same time, allows the user to customize the storage infrastructure to meet their specific needs, such as creating redundancy, separating different types of data, or even creating a tiered storage system.
The HBA also has optical LC SFP+ (Small Form-factor Pluggable Plus) connectivity, which allows for increased distance and reliability in data transfer. LC SFP+ connectors offer high-density, high-speed connectivity for short-wave optical transceivers, which can support data transfer over longer distances than copper cables, and also provide improved signal quality. This is particularly useful for data centers with multiple racks or for storage systems that are physically separated from the server.
It also utilizes a PCIe Gen3 x8 interface, which provides improved performance over previous generations of PCIe interfaces. This allows for faster data transfer and improved system responsiveness, which can be beneficial for storage systems that handle large amounts of data or that require low latency.
The HBA supports short wave optical, which enhances data transfer and is ideal for data centers and storage environments that require high-speed data transfer over long distances. It also has advanced error handling and diagnostic capabilities, which helps to quickly identify and resolve any issues that may occur.

What is A Fiber Channel?
A fiber channel (FC) is a computer networking protocol used for transferring data between one or several computer systems at extremely high speeds. The successive technology generations of fiber channels run at data rates ranging from 1-128 (gigabit per second rates).
Fiber channels were initially developed for supercomputers. However, in recent times, they are commonly used in storage networking server environments, serving as a substitute to various serial storage technologies and small computer system interfaces (SCSI), aka "Scuzzy."
Fiber Channels are the integral components for data transmission among data centers, computer servers, switches, and storage at up to 128 Gbps.
History of Fiber Channel
Fiber channel began in 1988 to consolidate the advantages of multiple physical layer applications, including HIPPI, ESCON, and Scuzzy (SCSI). It is regulated in the T11 Technical Committee of the INCITS (International Committee for Information Technology Standards). The fiber channel effectively overcame the challenges of sustaining signal timing coherence across all the data-signal cables (50 for HIPPI and 8, 16, and 32 for scuzzy). Consequently, a receiver can conclude when all the electrical signal values are stable and sound for synchronous reception sampling.
The advantages of Fiber Channel
Storage Area Networks (SAN) and Network Attached Storage (NAS) have enjoyed increased popularity over the years. Fiber channel, on the other hand, has played a vital role in this development. While SAN employs fiber channel as the transmission protocol for storage provisioning, a NAS usually uses TCP/IP as the transmission protocol, NFS, or other file sharing applications for storage provisioning. Below are some of the advantages of the fiber channel.
Native fiber drives bring about high-level reliability and data integrity. They are dual-ported as a standard feature. Arguably the critical advantage that fiber channel SANs once held and still holds is the speed. It remains as one aspect that differentiates the fiber channel SANs from those of the Ethernet.
Fiber channel remains the ideal solution for IT professionals seeking high-performance, cost-effective information storage and reliability at high speeds. Given that fiber channel is a lossless protocol, it is often rated higher than the Ethernet network. Sent frames must be received in order and not dropped by the switch. This feature, however, is sometimes absent with Ethernet.
Other benefits of fiber channel FC include LUN masking, cost, and size. Allhdd.com fiber channel controllers are from trusted brands and are available at give-away prices. Please choose from our wide range collection and enjoy a 30-day warranty and fast delivery across 48 U.S. states.
