Dual Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Server Adapter Broadcom® BCM5718 Based

Silicom’s Dual Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Server adapter is PCI Express x4 lane, Gen-1 Copper Gigabit Ethernet network interface card that contains two Gigabit copper ports on a PCI Express adapter.

The Silicom’s Dual Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Server adapter is based on BCM5718 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 Dual 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 Dual 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.
