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

This product has been discontinuedEOL Notification

Silicom’s Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Server adapters are PCI-Express Server Adapters cards that contain Multiple / Single Gigabit ports/ on a PCI-Express adapter.

Silicom’s Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Server adapters are 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 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Server adapters enable fault-tolerant via teaming. Traffic from the failed port is routed through other members of the team.

Silicom’s Gigabit Ethernet PCI-Express Server adapters have 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 Gigabit Ethernet PCI-Express Server adapters are the ideal solution for implementing multiple network segments, mission-critical high-powered networking applications and environments within high performance servers.

SFP Gigabit Ethernet:
Gigabit Ethernet Adapters with SFP cage support:

  • 1000Base-LX Fiber Gigabit Ethernet with 1000Base-LX SFP transceiver
  • 1000Base-SX Fiber Gigabit Ethernet with 1000Base-SX SFP transceiver
  • 1000Base-T (1000Mbit/s) Copper Gigabit Ethernet with 1000Base-T SFP transceiver
  • Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) Cage for SFP LC connectors
  • 2PortLink synchronization

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
  • 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 (16KB)
  • 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
