Broadcom LPe35000 Emulex Gen 7 Fibre Channel HBAs

Broadcom LPe35000 Emulex Gen 7 Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) are designed for demanding mission-critical workloads and emerging applications. The LPe35000 HBAs offer up to 2x higher bandwidth, 3x better latency, enhanced security, and operational efficiency for 32GFC and 64GFC SANs. LPe35000 HBAs are available with single, dual, or quad 32GFC optics that can be upgraded with 64GFC optics for future NVMe deployments. Gen 7 32GFC provides seamless backward compatibility to 16GFC and 8GFC networks. The Emulex Dynamic Multi-core Architecture produces unparalleled performance and a more efficient port utilization.

The HBAs support NVMe over Fibre Channel (NVMe/FC), presenting significantly lower latency versus traditional Fibre Channel SCSI Protocol (SCSI FCP). LPe35000 HBAs offer enhanced reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS), including port isolation and port-based error isolation, enabling users to detect, isolate, and recover from errors easily.
