1978-8205 - IBM i Series E4B, IBM Gigabit Ethernet-SX PCI-X Adap
The IBM Gigabit Ethernet-SX PCI-X Adapter provides a 1 Gbps (1000 Base-SX) full-duplex Ethernet LAN connection with throughput on a standard shortwave multimode optical cable which conforms to the IEEE 802.3z standard. The adapter supports distances of 260m for 62.5 micron Multi Mode Fiber (MMF) and 550m for 50.0 micron MMF. AIX Network Install Manager (NIM) boot capability is supported with this adapter.
Note: For optimum performance, the adapter should be placed in a 64 bit PCI-X card slot.
Note: The IBM Gigabit Ethernet-SX PCI-X Adapter (#1978) incorporates an LC type connector on the card. This new, smaller form factor connector is being used by the industry for the next generation of fiber optic networks. If connecting into an older, existing SC type connector network, an LC-SC 62.5 Micron Fiber Converter Cable (#2459) or LC-SC 50 Micron Fiber Converter Cable (#2456) is required.
Limitation: Half Duplex (HDX) mode is not supported.
Attributes provided: One full-duplex 1000Base-SX fiber connection to a Gigabit Ethernet LAN.
Attributes required: One available PCI or PCI-X card slot
