The D-Link DGE-560T PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Adapter is a high performance adapter designed for the high-speed PCI Express Bus Architecture. The PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Adapter offers increased bandwidth, reliability, and more functionality than standard PCI network cards. It is specifically designed to allow throughput at rates up to 2 Gbps, thus eliminating the bottleneck that exists with current 32 and 64 bit PCI bus architectures.
Advanced Features and Security
The card features onboard screening of 802.1Q VLAN Tagged Ethernet frames, allowing you to assign multiple subnets to each server and isolate devices within each VLAN from the rest of the network for better traffic control and security. It also supports 802.1p Priority Tagging to allow you to prioritize traffic. Best of all, with the DGE-560T’s “Hot-Plug” support, a replacement card can be installed without ever 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 card itself. With support for advanced features such as 802.3x flow control, Jumbo Frames, and SNMP for network management, the DGE-560T can interoperate with your current networking equipment easily
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 is designed to save power in your network. It complies with IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet, by which it automatically lowers power consumption when traffic is low.
