The Brocade 1010 (single port) and Brocade 1020 (dual port) Converged Network Adapters (CNAs) integrate 10 Gbps Ethernet Network Interface Card (NIC) functionality with Fibre Channel technology—enabling transport over a 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) connection through the new Data Center Bridging (DCB) and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) protocols, providing best-in-class LAN connectivity and I/O consolidation to help reduce cost and complexity in next-generation data center environments.

Enterprise-Class Connectivity for Next-Generation Virtual Data Centers

Today's IT professionals face the difficult challenge of reducing data center cost and complexity while satisfying numerous Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and performance requirements. As a result, organizations are seeking ways to improve server and storage utilization, reduce ongoing operational costs, and increase their flexibility and responsiveness.


  • Provides high-performance line-rate 10 Gbps Ethernet for enterprise-class, reliable LAN connectivity
  • Supports Data Center Bridging (DCB) for low-latency, lossless, and deterministic 10 Gbps Ethernet connectivity and storage over Ethernet applications (FCoE/iSCSI)
  • Delivers advanced Ethernet performance, including IPv4 and IPv6 checksum offload, RSS, HDS, jumbo frame support, and TSO
  • Provides scalable connectivity features across a secure, multiprotocol, lossless environment
  • Accelerates deployment and troubleshooting time with Dynamic Fabric Provisioning (DFP), critical monitoring, and advanced diagnostic features
  • Enables a single driver for both Brocade CNAs and Fibre Channel HBAs
  • Provides an integral part of the Brocade DCB/FCoE solution
