The HPE StoreFabric CN1200E N3U51A 10GBASE-T Converged Network Adapters (CNAs) are dual port adapters that provide Ethernet, iSCSI, and Fibre Channel (FC) connectivity over 10 GbE/25 GbE using both Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE) standards. By consolidating Ethernet, iSCSI, and Fibre Channel onto a converged adapter, HPE CNAs reduce the number of separate adapters and cables required for your data center and also reduce operational, power, and cooling costs while preserving existing Ethernet and Fibre Channel infrastructure. HPE CNAs have also been thoroughly tested with HPE ProLiant servers and HPE Top of Rack (ToR) switches to help ensure a better HPE FCoE solution for your data center. This HPE StoreFabric CN1200E 10GBASE-T Dual Port Converged Network Adapter comes with 3 Years Warranty.

Ethernet, iSCSI, and Fibre Channel in one adapter
Combines the functionality of a NIC (Ethernet), iSCSI, and Fibre Channel onto a single converged network adapter reducing the number of adapters and cables and reducing acquisition and operational costs
Support jumbo frames (also known as extended frames), permitting up to a 9K byte (KB) transmission unit (MTU) when running Ethernet I/O traffic. This is over 5X the size of a standard 1500-byte Ethernet frame. With jumbo frames, networks can achieve higher throughput performance and improve CPU utilization. These attributes are particularly useful for database transfer and tape backup operations.
HPE CNAs supports DPDK with benefit for packet processing acceleration and use in NFV deployments.
TCP/IP Stateless Offloading
TCP, IP, UDP checksum offload, Large Send Offload (LSO), TCP Segmentation Offload (TSO). These features optimize host efficiency, leaving the CPU available for other duties.
HPE CNAs minimize the impact of overlay networking on host performance with tunnel offload support for VXLAN and NVGRE. By offloading packet processing to adapters, customers can use overlay networking to increase VM migration flexibility and network scale with minimal impact to performance. HPE Tunnel Offloading increases I/O throughput, reduces CPU utilization, and lowers power consumption. NVGRE tunnel offload supports Microsoft OS environments and VxLAN supports select VMware and Linux (RHEL and SUSE) environments.
CN1300R and CN1200R-T hardware supports emerging NVMe Express (NVMe) over RDMA (RoCE, RoCEv2 and iWARP).
MSI and MSI-X
Message Signaled Interrupt (Extended) provides performance benefits for multi-core servers by load balancing interrupts between CPUs/cores.
IEEE 802.1Q virtual local area network (VLAN) protocol allows each physical port of the HPE CNAs to be separated into multiple virtual NICs for added network segmentation and enhanced security and performance. VLANs increase security by isolating traffic between users. Limiting the broadcast traffic to within the same VLAN domain also improves performance.
Forward Error Correction (FEC)
At 25GbE bandwidth, FEC may be required depending on physical cable and optics used. The CN1300R supports both RS-FEC and FC-FEC settings at 25Gb bandwidth.
Optimized for Virtualization
I/O Virtualization support for VMware NetQueue and Microsoft VMQ help meet the performance demands of consolidated virtual workloads.
Compliant with Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV), accommodating multiple Virtual Machines (VMs) to share single PCIe resources.
BASE-T versions of HPE CNAs can auto negotiate between 1GbE and 10GbE connections, requiring no manual intervention. Similarly, the CN1300R utilizes a technology called SmartAN(TM) to automatically configure the adapter port when connecting to either 10GbE or 25GbE. When connecting to 25GbE, Bandwidth and FEC settings are match to the switch and cable type used for the connection.
Checksum & Segmentation Offload
Normally the TCP Checksum is computed by the protocol stack. By selecting one of the "Checksum Offload" parameters, the checksum can be computed by the adapter.
Segmentation Offload is technique for increasing outbound throughput of high-bandwidth network connections by reducing CPU overhead. The technique is also called TCP segmentation offload (TSO) when applied to TCP, or generic segmentation offload (GSO).
IPv6 uses 128-bit addressing allowing for more devices and users on the Internet. IPv4 supported 32-bit addressing.
CN1200R-T and CN1300R adapters support Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) allowing the adapter to bypass the CPU and have direct access to memory for I/O commands. Bypassing the CPU reduces the time it takes to process each I/O command and reduces I/O latency. The adapters support both iWARP and RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) protocols. iWARP and RoCE/RoCEv2 can run concurrently on the same adapter, but not on the same port.
Receive Side Scaling (RSS)
RSS resolves the single-processor bottleneck by allowing the receive side network load from a network adapter to be shared across multiple processors. RSS enables packet receive-processing to scale with the number of available processors.
Time synchronization implementations (PTP)
Synchronization of system clocks throughout a network, achieving clock accuracy in the sub-microsecond range, making it suitable for measurement and control systems.
Network Adapter Teaming
HPE CNAs support for NIC teaming helps IT administrators increase network fault tolerance and increased network bandwidth. The team of adapters can work together as a single virtual adapter.
Network Partitioning (NPAR)
Select HPE CNAs support Network Partitioning (NPAR) for ProLiant rack servers. Allowing administrators to configure a 10 Gb port as four separate partitions or physical functions. Each PCI function is associated with a different virtual NIC. To the OS and the network, each physical function appears as a separate NIC port.
Converged Enhanced Ethernet reliability standards
Sends Fibre Channel data packets via Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) using Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE) standards ensuring high standards of data integrity and lossless Ethernet.
