Apple Quad-Channel 4Gb Fibre Channel PCI Express Product Details
A Fibre Channel PCI Express card is required to connect a Mac Pro to external Fibre Channel storage or an Xsan network. A user-installable kit contains an Apple Quad-Channel 4Gb Fibre Channel PCI Express Card (host bus adapter) plus four 2.9-meter 4Gb Active Copper Fibre Channel SFP to SFP (small form factor pluggable) interconnect cables. The Fibre Channel PCI Express card is installed in your computer and the cables are used to connect to the SFP port on a Fibre Channel storage device or Fibre Channel switch with SFP connectors. This card runs at full bandwidth in an eight-lane PCI Express slot.
SFP connectors on the card allow use of copper or optical cabling and provide the capability of directly connecting to Fibre Channel storage and switches over long distances up to 500m.
The Apple Fibre Channel PCI Express card offers leading performance and compatibility with Mac OS X, Mac OS X Server and Xsan.
Installation of an Apple Fibre Channel PCI Express card in a Mac Pro reclassifies these systems as FCC Class A devices.
Optical connection requires SFP transceivers and optical cables.
This card is not compatible with PCI or PCI-X based systems.
