10 Gigabit for the Broad Market
The Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X540-T2 is the latest innovation in Intel’s leadership to drive 10 Gigabit Ethernet into the broader server market.
This adapter hosts Intel’s latest Ethernet silicon, the Intel® Ethernet Controller X540, which is used by many OEMs as a single chip solution for LAN on Motherboard (LOM) to deliver 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) on the latest server platforms.
10GBASE-T Simplifies the Transition to 10 GbE
The X540 family of products works with existing networks today. It works with legacy Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switches and CAT6a cabling. Install the X540 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. When time and budget allows, 10GBASE-T switches can be added any time to experience the full benefits of 10 GbE.
10G Performance at Low Cost and Low Power
The new Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X540-T2 is the lowest cost way to deploy 10 GbE in your data center today. The X540-T2 uses low cost, CAT6 and CAT6a cabling. Chances are this cabling already exists in the data center.
