Product Description

  Features   Benefits
  10GbE Converged Network Adapter Intel X540 based   Industry's first integrated MAC PHY, reducing cost and power.
  Support for most Network Operating Systems (NOS)   Enables widespread deployment.
  RoHS compliant, lead-free technology   Compliant with the European Union directive (July 2005) to reduce hazardous materials.
  MSI-X support   Minimized the overhead of interrupts. Allows load balancing of interrupt handling between different cores/CPUs.
  Low Latency

  Based on the sensitivity of the incoming data, the adapter can bypass the automatic moderation of time intervals between the interrupts.
  Header Splits and Replication in Receive   Helps the driver focus on the relevant part of the packet without the need to parse it.
  Tx/Rx IP, 5CTP, TCP, and UDP checksum offloading (IPv4, IPv6) capabilities

  Low processor usage. Checksum and segmentation capability extended to new standard packet type.
  Tx TCP segmentation offload (IPv4, IPv6)   Increased throughput and lower processor usage. Compatible with large send off load feature (in Microsoft Windows Server operating systems).
  Compatible with x8 and x16 standard PCI express slots

  Enables each PCI Express slot to operate without interfering or competing with other ports.
  RJ45 connections over CAT-6a cabling   Ensures compatibility with cable lengths up to 100 meters.

VLAN support with VLAN tag insertion, stripping and packet filtering for up to 4096 VLAN tags
Ability to create multiple VLAN segments.
