Quad Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Server Adapter Intel® Based

Silicom’s Quad Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Server adapter is PCI-Express X8 Copper Gigabit Ethernet network interface card that contain Multiple / Single Gigabit port/s on a PCI-Express adapter.

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 enable 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.

Silicom’s Quad Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet server adapter is based on Intel 82576 Dual port Gigabit Ethernet MAC+PHY of Intel Controller.
