IBM 22P7801 (Service Parts: 22P7809) Networking Card This Fibre Ethernet Adapter enables high-performance network connections for IBM eServer xSeries customers. Server performance is optimized so that system I/O does not bottleneck in high-performance networking applications. This adapter uses the latest Gigabit technology to deliver higher data throughput and increased CPU performance. Its flexible architecture efficiently matches the hardware behavior to the operating system. Higher data throughput allows better utilization of the network and contributes to lower latencies for the applications. Lower CPU utilization enables the server to execute applications faster when communicating over the network.
This IBM NetXtreme 1000 SX NIC card offers greater distances and noise resistance through fiber optic connection. It delivers 64-bit PCI and PCI-X support, and enables faster transmissions with lower CPU utilization. Its PCI hot plug feature lets you remove/replace server NICs often without taking the server offline.
