Intel EXPI9404PT 4 Port Copper Gigabit Server Grade NIC Card
Conserve valuable PCI Express (PCIe) server slots while adding multi-port Gigabit Ethernet capability with th Intel PRO/1000 PT Quad Port Server Adapter. The dedicated input/output (I/O) bandwidth of PCIe ensures priority performance on each port - without bus sharing - for Gigabit Ethernt connectivity in Category-5 networks. The Intel PRO/1000 PT Quad Port Server Adapter improves performance in multi-processor systems by balancing network loads across multiple central processing units (CPUs). Additionally, the Intel PRO/1000 PT Quad Port Server Adapter enables Intel I/O Acceleration Technology (Intel I/OAT) for faster I/O processing on the new Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor-based servers.
The Intel PRO/1000 PT Quad Port Server Adapter represents the sixth generation of Intel network adapters for Gigabit Ethernet, and features 10/100/1000 Mbps self-configuration for compatibility with mixed-speed network infrastructure. The Intel PRO/1000 PT Quad Port Server Adapter is supported by Intel PRO Intelligent Install and the new Intel PROSet Utility for Windows Device Manager. Intel PROSet simplifies adapter installation and gives you point-and-click power to configure and manage all your Intel PRO Network Connections for connectivity you can count on.
• Four high-performance PCI Express 10/100/1000n Mbps connections for slot-constrained severs requiring high bandwidth.
• Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Scalability enhances and increase iptime through advanced features.
• Built on Intel lead-free technology.
Please note: This Card is OEM Bulk Packaged & is Supplied with Full Height Bracket ONLY. Features • Two Intel 82571GB Gigabit Controllers: Enables four Gigabit ethernet connections on a single adapter, delivering increased bandwidth for slot-constrained servers and providing high performance, reliability, and low power use in two single, integrated, dual port PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller chips.
• Load balancing on multiple CPUs: Increases performance on multi-processsor systems by efficiently balancing network loads across CPU cores when used with Receive-Side Scaling from Microsoft or Scalable I/O Linux.
• Intel I/OAT: Accelerates I/O with higher throughput and lower CPU utilization by offloading processing overhead.
• Virtualization: Multi-port cards provide the platform with the port density required for virtualized environments.
• Interrupt moderation: Delivers increased performance while significantly reducing CPU utilization.
• Compatible with x4, x8, and x16 full-height PCI Express slots: Allows quad-port operation in almost any PCI Express server slot, expect x1 slots, and allows each port to operate without interfering with the other.
• Support for most network operating systems (NOS): Enables widespread deployment.
• Remote management support: Reduces support costs with remote management based on industry-wide standards,
• Category-5 unshielded twisted pair (UTP), 4-pair cabling: Uses existing 4-pair cabling and saves re-wiring costs.
• RoHS compliant, lead-free technology: Commpliant with the EU & China standards to reduce the use of hazardous materials.
• Intel PROSet Utility for Windows: Provides point-and-click power over individual adapters, advanced adapter features, connection teaming, and Device Manager virtual local area network (VLAN) configuration.
• Advanced cable diagnostics: Dynamically tests and reports network problems (error rate, cable length) and automatically compensates for cable issues (cross-over cable, wrong pin-out/polarity).
• Intel backing: Backed by an Intel limited lifetime warranty, and worldwide support.
Please note: This Card is OEM Bulk Packaged & is Supplied with Full Height Bracket ONLY.

As a growing number of homes contain more than one computer, their users must find ways to network them. The primary purpose for creating a home network tends to be to provide Internet access to all computers within the house. There are other good reasons, however. These include enabling LAN gaming, data backups from one machine to another and the sharing of music within the home.
