- Delivers 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) over existing CAT6a unshielded twisted pair cabling
- Optimized for virtualized data centers
- IPsec and MACsec security engines deliver line rate performance in secured environments
- Available in three form factors: PCIe, Embedded, and ML2
The explosive growth in virtualization is driving the need for a faster network. Meanwhile, network-intensive applications, such as video and real-time media, are also demanding more bandwidth. The Intel X540 Dual Port 10BaseT Adapter Family for IBM® System x® is an excellent choice for addressing the needs of today's data center networks.
The Intel X540 network adapter family supports 10GBASE-T connectors that utilize RJ-45 ports over unshielded twisted pair cabling. Because these adapters are backward compatible with your existing 1000BASE-T switches, they greatly simplify your transition to 10 GbE technology.
