Designed for operation in latest high-speed networks, the XMC401 provides 2x 10GbE data throughput at full speed.In addition to the great processing performance on Kontron´s CPU
In addition to the great processing performance on Kontron´s CPU side, the next generation 10 Gigabit Switched Mezzanine Card (XMC) provides sufficient data throughtput for todays Ethernet networks. Two 10GbE ports attached by PCIe x8 to the host computer, combined with new capabilities and enhancement of the Intel® 82599ES 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller, helps unshackle processors from their predecessor’s network I/O handcuffs and unleashes blazing performance in a variety of usage models. Supporting latest Intel VT technologies, Kontron provides the platform foundation for virtualization and storage over Ethernet usages and provides new opportunities to more efficiently utilize network links. Offering the possibility of either one or two channels as well as the support of copper and/or optical transmission, the XMC401 allows a maximum flexibility. Furthermore, it supports intelligent behaviour through the auto detection feature of copper network configurations.
