N5K-C5596UP-FA with Broadcom NetXtreme II BCM57711 NIC

Hi,

Our customer is willing to buy a N5K-C5596UP-FA and wants to know if he can use the Broadcom NetXtreme II BCM57711 NIC for Fiber channel.

Any help is much appreciated?

Hi Santiago,

The Broadcom NetXtreme II BCM57711 appears to be ethernet only (

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/ps10265/ps10493/1CS57711-TB100-D5.pdf).  It can do 10Gig Ethernet and iSCSI offloading.

They would need to purchase a FC HBA or CNA card depending on the design of the infrastructure to do Fiber Channel.
