PR: Cost Effective Gigabit Cards

Lockbourne, OH - July 22, 2015 - has announced the release of its two new Gigabit Ethernet Network Cards with Intel® chipsets (ST1000SPEXI and ST4000SPEXI) that offer cost-effective Gigabit network access and maximize network performance. The new cards are ideal for IT professionals looking to maximize network performance for either single or multi-port network solutions.

With the Intel chipsets, the new cards ensure reliable network connections and provide access to many advanced features such as PXE network boot, Audio-Video Bridging and Intel® Virtualization Technology for connectivity. The single-port card adds a high-performance Gigabit port to server or desktop while the four-port network card adds multi-port network access through only one PCI Express slot allowing cost-effective access to multiple networks.

“Advanced networking solutions are just another area among many that StarTech.com prides itself in offering a wide selection of product options for our customers. The addition of these high performance business-focused network cards are the latest in this continuing trend,” said Carey Cline, Senior Product Manager for StarTech.com.

  • Designed with Intel I210-AT chipset to deliver high performance features and reliability required for more demanding business environments
  • Support PXE (Pre-boot Execution Environment) boot to allow client or network systems without configured operating systems to be remotely booted
  • Audio-Video Bridging
  • Wake-on-LAN and 9K jumbo frame support
