Six Port SFP Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Server Adapter Intel® i350AM4 Based

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 the ideal solution for implementing multiple network segments, mission-critical high-powered networking applications and environments within high performance servers.

PE2G6SFPI35 Server Adapter

Silicom’s Six Port SFP Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Server adapter is based on Intel i350AM4 Quad port Gigabit Ethernet MAC+PHY and Intel i350AM2 Dual port Gigabit Ethernet MAC+PHY of Intel Controller.

The Silicom i350 support PCI-SIG Single-Root I/O virtualization and sharing specification (SR-IOV).
