Product Details

The Cisco UCS M71KR-Q QLogic Converged Network Adapter (CNA) is a QLogic-based Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) mezzanine card that provides connectivity for Cisco UCS B-Series Blade Servers in the Cisco Unified Computing System.

Designed specifically for the Cisco UCS blades, the adapter provides a dual-port connection to the midplane of the blade server chassis. The Cisco UCS M71KR-Q uses an Intel 82598 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller for network traffic and a QLogic 4-Gbps Fibre Channel controller for Fibre Channel traffic, all on the same mezzanine card. The Cisco UCS M71KR-Q presents two discrete Fibre Channel host bus adapter (HBA) ports and two Ethernet network ports to the operating system

Summary

The Cisco UCS M71KR-Q QLogic Converged Network Adapter (CNA) is a QLogic-based Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) mezzanine card that provides connectivity for Cisco UCS B-Series Blade Servers in the Cisco Unified Computing System.

Features

  • Risk mitigation through compatibility with current QLogic adapter-based SAN environments and drivers
  • Reduced TCO through consolidation of LAN and SAN traffic over the same mezzanine card and fabric, reducing the overall number of network interface cards (NICs), HBAs, cables, and switches
  • Integrated management with Cisco UCS Manager
