Dual Port Copper (CX4) 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Bypass Server Adapter Intel® Based

This product has been discontinuedEOL Notification

The Silicom’s 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Bypass server adapters is a PCI-Express X8 network interface card targeted to inline network system that maintains network connectivity when system fails.

The Silicom‘s 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Bypass server adapter offers simple integration into to 10Gigabit Ethernet Networks. The Silicom’s 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Bypass server adapter supports Normal and Bypass mode.

In Normal mode, the ports are independent interfaces. In Bypass mode, all packets received in a port are transmitted to other and vice versa. The Silicom’s 10 Gigabit Ethernet Bypass server adapters can Bypass its Ethernet ports on a host system failure, power off, or upon software request.

In Bypass mode, the connections of the Ethernet ports are disconnected from the system and switched over to the other port to create a crossed connection loop-back between the Ethernet ports.

Hence, in bypass mode all packets received from one port are transmitted to other port and vice versa. This feature enables to bypass a failed system and provides maximum up time for the network.

Silicom’s 10 Gigabit Ethernet Bypass server adapters include an on board WDT (Watch Dog Timer) controller. The adapter’s software drivers or software application can write commands to the on board WDT controller. The adapter’s software drivers, WDT controller and the Bypass circuitry provide an interface that control and manage the mode of the adapter.

Silicom’s 10 Gigabit Ethernet Bypass server adapter is based on Intel 82598 Ethernet controller.

The Silicom’s 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCI-Express Bypass Server adapter is the ideal solution for implementing multiple network segments, mission-critical high-powered networking applications and environments within high performance servers.
