The 5704 PCI-X Fibre Channel Tape Controller IOA provides Fibre Channel attachment capability for external tape devices using an IOP base IOA adapter. The 5704 supports point-to-point and arbitrated loop topologies and has an LC-type cable connector. Each 5704 PCI-X Fibre Channel Tape Controller is shipped with a wrap connector (part number 05N6767). The 5704 supports 64-bit, 133 MHz PCI-X bus speeds.
Because V7R2 and above require IOP-less connectivity, the 5704 is supported only until V7R1.
