Kontron XMC401: Highest Data Throughput on Two Interfaces
Dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet XMC mezzanine card for CompactPCI®, VME or VPX systems
Eching/Nuremberg Germany-The new dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet Kontron XMC401 mezzanine board extends all CompactPCI®, VME, and custom boards offering a XMC slot by two 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports. Based on the Intel® 82599ES 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller, Kontron's next-generation Ethernet Switched Mezzanine Card (XMC) provides more than sufficient data throughput for the Ethernet networks of today and tomorrow.
In addition to advanced processing performance, the new dual 10 GbE controller, which connects to the host computer via PCIe x8, efficiently reduces CPU load. Combined with the new capabilities and enhancements of the Intel® 82599ES 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller such as checksum offload, TCP segmentation offload, and reduced interrupt operations, the Kontron XMC401 helps release processors from network I/O bottlenecks to unleash blazing performance in a variety of usage models.
By supporting the latest Intel® VT technologies, Kontron provides the platform foundation for virtualization and storage over Ethernet and opens up new possibilities for efficiently utilizing network connections.
Offering the possibility of either one or two SFP+ channels as well as support for copper and/or optical transmission, the Kontron XMC401 allows for maximum flexibility. Furthermore, it has intelligent behavior through the operation of 1GbE direct attached copper or 1/10 GbE fiber network configurations.
The Kontron XMC401 dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet mezzanine board is available now and supports Linux as well as the latest Windows operating systems.
