Product ID: ST1000SPEXI
Boost the performance and capabilities of your server or desktop computer by adding a Gigabit Ethernet port through a PCI Express slot. This GbE (Gigabit Ethernet) network card makes it easy to create a high-performance, cost-effective networking solution.
This PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet card utilizes the Intel® I210-AT chipset, delivering the power, performance and enhanced capabilities you need for dependable network connections to your server or computer. Compliant with IEEE 802.3/u/ab standards, the GbE network card provides an effective upgrade or replacement network port, with a maximum throughput of up to 1000Mbps in each direction (2000 Mbps total) - up to ten times faster than 10/100 Ethernet.
The I210 chipset provides many advanced features to support load-balancing the flow of network traffic, to enhance throughput and provide greater data reliability. It also supports Audio-Video Bridging (AVB) to enable tightly controlled media stream synchronization, buffering and resource reservation.
Compatible with a broad range of operating systems, this versatile PCIe Gigabit NIC is ideal for many business applications requiring servers or workstation upgrades. It’s a cost-effective way to upgrade your server or computer from a 10/100 Ethernet port to a Gigabit Ethernet port, or add an Ethernet port to take advantage of advanced features such as VLAN tagging, Jumbo Frames, Wake-On-LAN and Auto MDIX.
With a dual-profile design, the PCI Express network card installs easily into a wide range of computer/server chassis, regardless of form factor. The card comes equipped with a full-sized bracket, and includes a low-profile/half-height installation bracket that you can use as needed.
