PCI Express x8 Dual Copper Port 10GBase-T Server Adapter works with legacy Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switches and Cat 6A cabling. Install the Intel X540 Ethernet adapter 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. 10GBASE-T is an option for every rack and tower server in the data centre. The wait for a low cost 10 GbE copper solution to broadly deploy 10 GbE to all corners of the data centre.
