The DGE-560T Gigabit PCIe Network Adapter is a high performance adapter
designed for the high-speed PCI Express Bus Architecture. The DGE-560T
offers increased bandwidth, reliability, and more functionality than
standard PCI network cards. It is specifically designed to allow
throughput at rates of up to 2Gbps, eliminating the bottleneck that
exists with current 32-bit and 64-bit PCI bus architectures. Advanced
features such as 802.3x flow control, SNMP for network monitoring and
management, and Jumbo Frame interoperability with your current
networking equipment are also supported.
Advanced Features and Security
The DGE-560T features onboard
screening of 802.1Q VLAN Tagged Ethernet frames for use in networks
that support 802.1Q VLAN features like subjects, traffic control, and
security. It also supports 802.1p Priority Tagging for traffic
prioritization. In addition, the DGE-560T supports 802.3ad Link
Aggregation. This provides a means to increase bandwidth to
workstations and servers by “trunking” multiple cards together forming
one large bandwidth pipe. In today’s overpopulated and bandwidth
starved networks, 802.3ad Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) can
dramatically improve performance of your overburdened LAN servers.
When using multiple network
adapters, the DGE-560T provides fail-over protection in the event that
one adapter malfunctions. In this situation, your server or workstation
traffic is simply passed over the remaining functional network adapter
connections, guaranteeing a safe and uninterrupted transmission of
data. Best of all, with the DGE-560T’s “Hot-Plug” support, a
replacement adapter can be installed without having to power down your
system*. The DGE-560T also supports TCP, UDP, and IP Checksum
Calculation as well as TCP Segmentation to improve overall system
performance by shifting CPU intensive tasks away from your host CPU and
onto the DGE-560T adapter itself.
Remote Management and Support
The DGE-560T includes many additional advanced features such as
Advanced Power Management and Wake-on-LAN support. It also supports
remote network boot using both PXE and RPL, allowing the network
administrator to boot the PC from anywhere on the network. The DGE-560T
supports all major operating systems including Windows Vista, Windows
XP, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2003, guaranteeing
compatibility with existing server and workstation environments. The
adapter also features a cable diagnostic utility that automatically
detects when you have a bad cable, making troubleshooting much easier.
With advanced features, high-performance architecture and reliability,
the D-Link DGE-560T is the perfect companion for any network that
requires a Gigabit Network Adapter at an affordable price.
