Interface Masters Technologies has announced an addition to its 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) server adapter card range designed to integrate with PCI Express (PCIe)-based inline networking servers.

The Niagara 32714L server adapter can integrate with wide-area-network acceleration, UTM, IPS systems and security and monitoring appliances such as firewalls, IDS systems and analysis probes, for instance.

The adapter is a PCIe x16, low-profile, low-power Quad Port 10 GbE NIC, with SFP+ pluggable modules for multi- and single-mode fibre media, based on Intel’s 82599 10GE controller.

The Niagara 32714L 10 GE NIC is based on the latest 10GE Intel 82599 Gigabit Ethernet controller, which provides PCIe 2.0 (5GT/s) support, low-power 6.2W operation and queue support optimised for multicore processors consisting of 128 transmit (Tx) and receive (Rx) queues.

The 82599 also offers Intel’s Virtualization Technology for Connectivity (VT-c), which helps reduce input/output (I/O) bottlenecks, boost throughput and reduce latency.

The virtual machine device queues improve performance by offloading the data-sorting burden from the virtual machine manager to the network controller.

The server adapter possesses specialised features including layer-two and -three security, such as IPSec and Linksec, Intel I/OAT Acceleration v3.0, VLAN Tagging, stripping and packet filtering, FCoE transmit, segmentation and offload and SNMP and RMON statistic counters.
