Intel® 10 Gigabit AT2 Server Adapter Product Brief
10 Gigabit Performance at the Low Cost of Copper
This 10 Gigabit AT2 Ethernet Server Adapter showcases Intel’s second-generation standards-based 10GBASE-T adapter in a low-profile PCI Express* form factor. It provides bandwidth-intensive applications with highly affordable 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) network performance with cost-effective RJ-45 connections for distances up to 100 meters. High-speed server connectivity — once reserved for costly, proprietary technologies such as High Performance Computing (HPC) clusters and grid-based computing — can now be achieved with the standardized connectivity of the Intel® 10 Gigabit AT2 Server Adapter. Intel’s adapter also provides 1000BASE-T support for gigabit connections to legacy switches.
Next-Generation 10 Gigabit Performance
10 Gigabit Ethernet has moved past the early adoption stage and is rapidly becoming a mainstay for backbones within enterprise and service provider networks. The escalating deployments of servers with multi-core processors and demanding applications such as HPC, database clusters, and video on demand are driving the need for 10 Gigabit connections. Based on the Intel® 82598EB 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller, this next-generation Intel 10 Gigabit AT2 Server Adapter is designed to meet the throughput requirements of bandwidth-hungry applications.
