Press Release Summary:
PCI-8214 and PCI-8213 2/4 port Ethernet cards run on 64-bit, 33/66 MHz PCI bus, and are also compatible with 32-bit PCI slots. Bypass capability is designed for network monitoring and control. When system crashes, unexpected power-down, or on-board watchdog timer has timed out, on-board relays will cross-link channel 1 and 2. Fail-safe data transmission is achieved by linking inbound and outbound network even when hardware or software fails.
Original Press Release:
ADLINK Announces 2 and 4 Port Fast Ethernet Cards with Bypass Capability
- Providing Fail-Safe Ethernet Traffic Flow Even When All Else Fails - Irvine, CA (July 2, 2002) - ADLINK TECHNOLOGY INC., the leading supplier of open-platform PC based measurement and automation equipment, today introduced PCI-8214 and PCI-8213, 2/4 port 64-bit fast Ethernet cards with bypass capability. Suitable for firewall, network traffic monitoring, online gaming, high availability, and applications requiring "always on" Internet traffic flow. The major function of these two new cards is the bypass capability, which is designed for network monitoring and control. When the system crashes, unexpected power-down, or the on-board watchdog timer has timed-out, the on-board relays will cross-link channel #1 and #2. Fail-safe data transmission is achieved by linking inbound and outbound network even when the hardware or the software fails. This bypass capability is especially vital for e-commerce and CRM applications where smooth Internet accessibility plays a critical role. Applications requiring load sharing as the priority, 4-port version is recommended. PCI-8213 and PCI-8214 both run on 64-bit, 33/66 MHz PCI bus, but are also compatible with 32-bit PCI slots. Moreover, state-of-the art Intel 82559 chip was integrated to ensure product longevity and interoperability among multiple OS, in addition to providing a network management service kit. The cards also supports Intel pre-boot execution environment (PXE) for remote boot. Each Ethernet port is equipped with two self-diagnostic LED to show the link status and the 10/100 status.
