Sierra 32710-TX

Dual port Ethernet NIC with bypass, low profile PCI-e server adapter card
  • 10GBASE-T
  • Copper
  • Intel X540

Sierra 32710-TX is a low profile, dual port, 10GBASE-T Ethernet server adapter built on Intel’s X540 10 Gigabit technology and designed with a built-in programmable bypass circuit to provide maximum uptime for the network. The bypass circuit takes the Sierra 32710-TX ports offline in case of either power or software failure. The bypass circuit works in absence of power.

Sierra 32710-TX 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.

  • Intel X540 dual MAC and PHY Ethernet 10GBASE-T controller
  • Peak bandwidth 5 Gb/s in each direction per PCI Express lane
  • Handles 40 Gigabit per second traffic load
  • Integrated PHY for full and half-duplex 10 Gbps Ethernet Support
  • Triple Speed Support: 100 Mbps/1 Gbps/10 Gbps speeds
  • PCI-e x 8 (Gen 2.0) compatible
  • Two 10GBASE-T ports
  • Passive bypass which is essential during power loss or software failure
  • Link Fault Detection (LFD) support
  • Programmable “Fail-Closed” or “Fail-Open” while in the power-off state
  • Programmable independent mode to function as a dual port gigabit copper card
  • TCP/UDP/IP checksum offload and TCP segmentation
  • Layer 2, 3 and 4 advanced packet filtering capabilities (IPv4, IPv6)
  • Efficient low profile form factor – 6.0 inches in length and 2.47 inches in height
  • Low power consumption 12.5W maximum power
  • Full RoHS compliance
  • FCC Class A and CE certifiable
