10GBase-T Dual Copper Port Ethernet Network Adapter

The network interface card (NIC) works with legacy Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switches and Cat 6A cabling. Install the Intel® chip into a server and the auto-negotiation between 1 GbE and 10 GbE provides the necessary backwards compatibility that most customers require for a smooth transition and easy migration to 10 GbE. With lower cost and power, 10GBASE-T is ready for broad deployment. This adapter provides reliable and scalable performance which is validated on FS servers.
