LREC9801BT PCI Express x8 Single Copper
Port 10 Gigabit Server Adapter (Intel X540 Based)
10GBASE-T converged network adapter simplifies migration to 10
GbE, provides iSCSI, FCoE, Virtualization, and Flexible Port Partitioning.
10 Gigabit for the
The LREC9801BT is the latest innovation in Intels leadership to
drive 10 Gigabit Ethernet into the broader server market. This adapter hosts
Intels 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.
the Transition to 10 GbE
10GBase-T works with existing networks today. It works with legacy Gigabit
Ethernet (GbE) switches and Cat 6A cabling. Install the LREC9812BT
10GBase-T adapter into a server and the auto-negotiation
between 1 GbE and 10GbE 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 10GbE.
10GBASE-T uses the
copper twisted pair cables that are very familiar to IT professionals today. It
is everything you know and love about 1000BASE-T. The knowledge, training and
investment in BASE-T are preserved. 10GBASE-T is the easiest and most versatile
10 GbE and you can deploy it anywhere in your data center. Its flexible reach
from 1 meter to 100 meters supports the latest network architectures including
Top of Rack (ToR), Middle of Row (MoR), and End of Row (EoR).
10G Performance at Low
Cost and Low Power
More than simply a
10x increase in performance, with 10GbE there are exciting new usage models
that are now possible, including Unified Networking (iSCSI, FCoE
and LAN), Virtualization (VMDq and SR- IOV), and now, Flexible Port
changes the way server resources are deployed and managed by running multiple
applications and operating systems independently on a single server.
10GBase-T adapter includes Intel Virtualization Technology for
connectivity (Intel VT-c) to deliver I/O virtualization and Quality of Service
(QoS) features designed directly into the Intel X540 controller on the adapter.
Intel I/O virtualization advances network connectivity models used in todays
servers to more efficient models by providing FPP, multiple Rx/Tx queues, and
on-controller QoS functionality that can be used in both virtual and
non-virtual server deployments.
advantage of the PCI-SIG SR-IOV specification, Intel Ethernet products enable
FPP. With FPP, virtual controllers can be used by the Linux host directly
and/or assigned to virtual machines. FPP allows you to use the functionality of
SR-IOV to assign up to 63 processes per port to virtual functions in
Linux. This enables an administrator to partition their 10 GbE bandwidth across
multiple processes, ensuring a QoS by giving each assigned process equal
bandwidth. Network administrators may also rate-limit each of these services to
control how much of the 10GbE pipe is available to each process.
