FN IO Module for FX2 Chassis - Reduce cable complexity

Reduce cable complexity

The FN IO Module (FN IOM) is designed specifically for the PowerEdge FX2 converged-infrastructure chassis, part of the PowerEdge FX architecture. Supporting up to two FN IOMs per chassis, the FX2 converged infrastructure also includes up to 8 x 10GbE internal ports, plus redundant cooling fans and power supplies.

The FN IOM can simplify FX2 connectivity by as much as 8-to-1, greatly reducing cabling complexity. Plug-and-play convenience with zero-touch and preconfigured features enables layer 2 control. This allows fast, easy network deployment using the Dell Blade IO Manager, with additional management of the FN IOM through a CLI using the Dell Networking OS 9, enabling full layer 3 switching functions.
FN IO Module for FX2 Chassis - Operate with dual mode capability

Operate with dual mode capability*

The FN IO Module has the ability to operate in two separate modes.

  • Plug-and-play mode designed for administrators to configure the FN IOM without having to configure networking settings. The device is managed through the Dell Blade IO Manager’s simple GUI interface.
  • Full switch mode, enabling layer 3 switch functions. This allows Dell OS 9 command line interface control, including routing protocols, multicast features, access control lists, IPv4 and IPv6 support, and OpenFlow capabilities for software-defined networking.

Optimize FX2 performance

Enhance east-west traffic flows within the FX2 enclosure for superior network performance. The FN IO Module takes full advantage of high-performance 10GbE throughput and the next-generation of PowerEdge servers, letting you easily connect to high-density network architectures.

In addition to the eight 10GbE internal ports, the FN IOM supports uplink-port link aggregation group (LAG) and virtual link trunking (VLT).


FN IO Module for FX2 Chassis - Optimize FX2 performance

Simplify converged IO and Fibre Channel connectivity

Choose the right module for your environment and simplify connectivity with your choice of external port configurations.

  • SFP+ (FN410s): Connect over long distances and minimize latency via optics with 4 x 10GbE SFP+ ports.
  • 10GBASE-T (FN410t): Support cost-effective copper media up to 100 meters with 4 x 10GBASE-T ports.
  • FC/SFP+ combination (FN2210s): Enable convergence directly within the FX2 enclosure, while reducing cabling and adapters, with a combination of two 2/4/8Gbps Fibre Channel ports* plus two 10GbE SFP+ ports(up to four 10GbE SFP+ ports with reboot).

 

FN IO Module for FX2 Chassis - Enable and ease LAN/SAN convergence

Enable and ease LAN/SAN convergence

Full data center bridging (DCB) support with zero-touch converged IO activation enable an automated LAN/SAN converged system that connects server nodes to upstream switches. The solution can:

 • Reduce cabling up to 75 percent
 • Remove up to 50 percent of your existing LAN/SAN adapters
 • Decrease upstream top-of-rack (ToR) ports by up to 75 percent

In addition, the FN IOM easily connects to the Dell Networking S5000 10/40GbE Switch that features up to 64 SFP+ ports and up to 12 Fibre Channel ports with full Fibre Channel fabric services support
