Broadcom First to Ship 7th Generation Fibre Channel

Brocade® Inc. (NASDAQ: AVGO) announced in December the industry’s first family of Gen 7 Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters (HBA). Broadcom Emulex® LPe35000 HBAs are the first product released that comply with FC-PI-7 standard, the fastest single-lane serial transmission speed that features the hardened NVMe over Fibre Channel protocol; purpose-built for all-flash and End-to-End NVMe data centers.
According to Broadcom, Oracle database testing shows that Emulex LPe35000-series HBA’s deliver up to 55% better performance than competitive products. Coupled with the previous hints dropped by Broadcom, many believe that we are not far away from a Broadcom announcement on the introduction of Gen 7 Broadcom Fibre Channel switches. Dell EMC® will be the first server vendor to offer Gen 7 FV connectivity via select Dell EMC® Power Edge servers.
