Optimized Performance and Scalability

The Dell 16GBPS Dual-ports PCI-Express 3.0 X8 Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter (403-BBMS) has been designed to deliver optimized performance and scalability for enterprise data centers and storage networks.

Performance Optimization:

  • The adapter supports a high data transfer rate of 16GBPS, providing fast and reliable data transmission.
  • The PCI-Express 3.0 interface ensures low latency and high bandwidth, enabling efficient data transmission between the adapter and the host system.
  • The dual-port configuration provides redundancy and increased reliability, ensuring uninterrupted data transfer in the event of a port failure.


  • The Fibre Channel protocol supports a high number of connections, allowing for the easy scaling of storage networks and data centers.
  • The PCI-Express 3.0 interface supports hot-plugging, allowing for easy installation and maintenance of the adapter without disrupting the system.
  • The adapter supports multiple operating systems, allowing for seamless integration into existing infrastructure.

Compatible Operating Systems

The 403-BBMS Dell 16GBPS Dual-ports PCI-Express 3.0 X8 Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter is compatible with the following operating systems:

  • Microsoft Windows Server 2016
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2012
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.x
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.x

  • VMware vSphere 6.0
  • VMware vSphere 5.5.

It is important to note that the adapter is also compatible with specific versions of these operating systems, and users are advised to check the vendor's specifications for the latest compatibility information.

Efficient Power Management

The Dell 16GBPS Dual-ports PCI-Express 3.0 X8 Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter (403-BBMS) supports efficient power management through the use of Advanced Power Management (APM) and Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE).

APM helps to reduce power consumption by automatically adjusting the power state of the adapter based on its usage. The adapter will enter into a lower power state when idle and switch to a higher power state when data transfer is required.

EEE allows the adapter to reduce its power consumption when in an idle state by reducing the power used by the Ethernet Physical Layer. This helps to conserve energy and reduce operating costs.

Additionally, the 403-BBMS supports PCI Express Active State Power Management (ASPM) which helps to further reduce power consumption by controlling the power state of the PCI Express link.

To ensure the most efficient power management, it is recommended to keep the adapter firmware and drivers up-to-date, and to monitor the adapter's power usage through the system management software.
