Six Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Server Adapter Intel® Based

Copper Gigabit Ethernet (1000Base-T) Adapters :

  • Independently copper Gigabit Ethernet channels support Single Gigabit Ethernet (1000Base-T), Fast Ethernet (100Base-Tx) and Ethernet (10Base-T)
  • Triple speed 1000Mbps (1000Base-T), 100 Mbps (100Base-Tx) and 10 Mbps (100Base-T) operation
  • Nway auto negotiation automatic sensing and switching between 1Gbps full duplex and 100 / 10 Mbps operations Simplex or Full Duplex
  • RJ-45 female connectors

Common Key Features:
Host Interface standard support:

  • PCI-Express Base Specification Revision 2.0 ( 5Gbps) to the upstream on board switch
  • High performance, reliability, and low power use in advanced Intel integrated MAC + PHY / SERDES chip Controllers
  • Ultra deep, packet buffer per channel lowers CPU utilization, avoids PCI-Express congestion
  • Hardware acceleration that can offload tasks from the host processor. The Controllers can offload TCP/UDP/IP checksum calculations and TCP segmentation
  • Server class reliability, availability and performance features:
  • Link Aggregation and Load Balancing:
    • Switch dependent: 802.3ad (LACP), Generic Trunking ( GEC / FEC)
    • Switch and NIC Independent
    • Failover
  • Priority queuing – 802.1p layer 2 priority encoding
  • Virtual LANs –802.1q VLAN tagging
  • Jumbo Frame (9.5KB)
  • 802.x flow control
  • Statistics for SNMP MIB II, Ethernet like MIB, and Ethernet MIB (802.3z, Clause 30)
  • LEDs indicators for link/Activity/Speed status
