Product Overview

The Intel® Ethernet Controller X550 Family is the low cost, single-chip, 10GBASE-T controller of choice, to broadly deploy 10 GbE in platform designs.  Now with support for FCoE, LAN, and iSCSI traffic, VXLAN, and NVGRE – 10GBASE-T is the most flexible adapter for all of your networking requirements.   Innovation continues with the second generation integrated 10GBASE-T MAC+PHY.  Integration drives down cost and power, enabling the most cost-effective deployment of 10 GbE in the data center.  And with 10GBASE-T, migration to 10 GbE is dramatically simplified through backward compatibility with your existing GbE network infrastructure.

Key features include:

  • PCI Express* (PCIe*) v 3.0 with up to 8.0 GT/s.
  • Unified networking delivering LAN, iSCSI and FCoE over 10GBASE-T.
  • Network virtualization stateless offload: VXLAN and NVGRE.
  • Intel® Ethernet Flow Director for hardware-based application traffic steering.
  • Flexible I/O virtualization for port partitioning and quality of service (QoS) of up to 128 virtual ports.
  • SMBus and NC-SI interfaces with OS2BMC, management component transport protocol (MCTP) and wake on LAN (WoL) support.
