Niagara 32710-TX | Dual Port 10 Gigabit Copper NIC with Bypass | Low Profile PCI-e Server Adapter Card

Interface Masters Technologies, Inc. | Niagara 32710-TX | Dual Port 10 Gigabit Copper NIC with Bypass | Low Profile PCI-e Server Adapter Card
Niagara 32710-TX


Niagara 32710-TX Low Profile Dual Port 10GBASE-T Ethernet Server Adapter is built on Intel’s X540 Ten Gigabit technology & Interface Masters’ sterling design and customer service.

Niagara 32710-TX is designed with a built-in programmable bypass circuit to provide maximum uptime for the network. The bypass circuit takes the Niagara 32710-TX ports offline in case of either power or software failure. The bypass circuit works in absence of power.

Niagara 32710-TX Low Profile Dual Port 10GBASE-T NIC is designed to integrate with PCI Express compatible servers and high-end appliances providing high speed networking and bypass/failover capabilities for any mission-critical application.
