10GBASE-T Converged Network Adapter Simplifies Migration to 10GbEProvides iSCSI, FCoE, Virtualization, and Flexible Port Partitioning10 Gigabit for the Broad MarketThe Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X540-T2 is the latest innovation in Intel’s leadership to drive 10 Gigabit Ethernet into the broader server market. This adapter hosts Intel’s 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.10GBASE-T Simplifies the Transition to 10GbEThe X540 family of products works with existing networks today. It works with legacy Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switches and CAT-6a cabling. Install the X540 adapter into a server and the auto-negotiation between 1 GbE and 10 GbE 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 10 GbE.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 PowerThe new Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X540-T2 is the lowest cost way to deploy 10 GbE in your data center today. The X540-T2 uses low cost, CAT-6 and CAT-6a cabling. Chances are this cabling already exists in the data center.
