OneConnect OCe14102-NT dual-port
10GBASE-T Ethernet Network Adapter
Key benefits
10GbE cabling support up to 100m for data center deployments using structured cabling
Increasing data center IT agility and scalability through deployment of a secure
multi-tenant cloud
Optimizing server hardware utilization by scaling high density virtualization
Infrastructure compatibility with widely
deployed 1000BASE-T (1GbE) networks
Flexibility to support top-of-rack, middleof-row, end-of-row or zone distribution
data center architectures
Maximizes server hardware ROI with high
virtual machine density
Delivering user-controlled bandwidth partitioning across workloads and management
The OCe14000 10GBASE-T Ethernet network adapter is designed for the high bandwidth and
scalability demands of enterprise applications, more scalable virtualization with support for
RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE), enhanced Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) and
NIC port partitioning, and next-generation overlay network technologies that address the
requirements for virtual machine (VM) mobility and massive scaling of Layer 2 subnets inside
private or hybrid cloud infrastructures.
Emulex Virtual Network Exceleration (VNeX™)
overlay network offloads for multi-tenant cloud networking
Scaling existing technologies for private or public multi-tenant infrastructures requires
networking solutions that can enable VM-to-VM communication and virtual workload
migration across Layer 2 and Layer 3 boundaries without impacting connectivity or
At the same time, these solutions need to ensure isolation and security for thousands or
millions of tenant networks. However, with existing technology, the available 4094 VLAN IDs
are insufficient to isolate/secure each tenant in a data center (private cloud) or hybrid cloud
Virtual Extensible Local Area Network (VXLAN), supported by VMware and Linux, and Network
Virtualization using Generic Routing Encapsulation (NVGRE), supported by Microsoft, are nextgeneration overlay networking solutions that address these requirements. These solutions
are a frame-in-frame data packet encapsulation scheme enabling the creation of virtualized
Layer 2 subnets that can span physical L3 IP networks. Traffic from each VM is tunneled to a
specific virtual network; the packets are then routed transparently over the existing physical
Emulex VNeX offload technology powered by a multi-core adapter ASIC engine accelerates the
performance of network virtualization by preserving legacy stateless TCP offloads and scaling
methods on encapsulated packets, providing full native network performance in a virtual
network environment.

OCe14000 10GBASE-T
Ethernet Network Adapter
RDMA support
The OCe14000 10GBASE-T adapter leverages RoCE enabling server to server data
movement directly between application memory without any CPU involvement
providing high throughput and data acceleration on a standard Ethernet fabric without
the need for any specialized infrastructure or management.
Optimized host virtualization density with SR-IOV support
SR-IOV optimizes I/O for VMs, enabling higher host server virtualization ratios to
deliver maximum server ROI. SR-IOV provides a more cost-effective solution than
multiple, physical adapter ports. SR-IOV enables multiple VMs to directly access
the OCe14000’s I/O resources, thus allowing VM networking I/O to bypass the host
and take a path directly between the VM and the adapter, eliminating redundant
I/O processing in the hypervisor. This, in turn, allows higher I/O performance, lower
CPU utilization and significantly reduced latency as compared to the alternative of
software-emulated NIC devices that are implemented in the hypervisor.
Optimized bandwidth allocation with Emulex
Universal Multi-Channel port or network partitioning
Emulex Universal Multi-Channel (UMC) is ideal for virtualized server environments
because bandwidth allocation can be optimized to support VM migration,
management and I/O intensive applications. UMC allows multiple PCI physical
functions to be created on each adapter port. Each port on the dual-port
OCe14102‑NT can be configured with up to eight functions.
Simplified management OneCommand® Manager application
The OneCommand Manager application provides centralized management of Emulex
OneConnect CNAs and LightPulse® HBAs throughout the data center from a single
management console. The OneCommand Manager application provides a graphical
user interface (GUI) and a scriptable command line user interface (CLI). OneCommand
Manager for VMware is fully integrated with VMware vCenter to simplify management
for virtual server deployments.
Fourth generation platform delivers enterprise-class reliability and performance
Leveraging generations of advanced, field-proven controller and adapter technology,
OCe14000 adapters meet the robust interoperability and reliability requirements
of enterprise and scale-out data centers.
