Silicom Part #/MPN: PEXG6I
DiscTech Item #: SIL-PEXG6I-NP-OE
Interface Types: PCIe
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.
Copper Gigabit Ethernet (1000Base-T) Adapters :

Common Key features
• Host Interface:
• 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.
• 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.
