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

This product has been discontinuedEOL Notification

Silicom’s Six Port SFP Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Server adapter is PCI-Express X8 network interface card that contains six Gigabit SFP ports on a PCI-Express adapter. Silicom’s Six Port SFP Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Server adapter is designed for Servers and high-end appliances. The adapter is designed for multi-core processors and optimized for virtualization.

The Silicom’s Six Port SFP Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express is PCI Express GEN2 host interface; the performance is optimized so that system I/O is not the bottleneck in high-performance networking applications. Silicom’s Six Port SFP Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Server adapter enable fault-tolerant via teaming.

Traffic from the failed port is routed through other members of the team. Silicom’s Six Port SFP Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Server adapter has an integrated hardware acceleration that performs TCP/UDP/IP checksum offload and TCP segmentation. The host processing offloads accelerators frees CPU for application processing.

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

Silicom’s Six Port SFP Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Server adapter is based on Intel 82576 Dual Port Gigabit Ethernet MAC+PHY of Intel Controller.
