Quad Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Low Profile Network Card Intel® Based

This product has been discontinuedEOL Notification

Silicom’s Quad Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express server adapter is a low profile network card, PCI Express X8 adapter that contains four Gigabit Ethernet ports.

Silicom’s Quad Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express server adapter is designed for Servers and high-end appliances. The performance is optimized so that system I/O is not the bottleneck in high-performance networking applications.

Silicom’s Quad Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express server adapter enables fault-tolerant via teaming. Traffic from the failed port is routed through other members of the team. Silicom’s Quad Port Copper 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 Quad Port Copper 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.

  • 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 1.0a
  • High performance, reliability, and low power use in advanced Intel integrated MAC + PHY / SERDES chip Controllers
