Throughput Theoretical Bandwidth
This adapter delivers 20 Gb/s bi-directional Ethernet transfer rate per port (40 Gb/s per adapter), providing the network performance needed to improve response times and alleviate bottlenecks.

802.1p QoS Tagging
IEEE quality of service (QoS) 802.1p tagging allows the adapter to mark or tag frames with a priority level across a QoS-aware network for improved traffic flow.

802.1Q VLANs
IEEE 802.1Q virtual local area network (VLAN) protocol allows each physical port of this adapter to be separated into multiple virtual NICs for added network segmentation and enhanced security and performance. VLANs increase security by isolating traffic between users. Limiting the broadcast traffic to within the same VLAN domain also improves performance.

Active Health System
Supports HPE Active Health System - monitors and records changes in the server hardware and configuration enabling customers to have accurate information that will assist in diagnosing problems and delivering rapid resolution when server failures occur.

This adapter supports DPDK with benefit for packet processing acceleration and use in NFV deployments.

HPE Sea Of Sensors 3D
Support for the HPE Sea of Sensors which is a collection of 32 sensors that automatically track thermal activity heat - across the server. When temperatures get too high, sensors can initiate fans and make other adjustments to reduce energy usage. A significant improvement lies in the ability to apply fan speed increases only to the portion of the system that is rising in temperature, rather than all six fans in unison, which reduces the amount of energy used for cooling.

Interrupt Coalescing
Interrupt coalescing (interrupt moderation) groups multiple packets, thereby reducing the number of interrupts sent to the host. This process optimizes host efficiency, leaving the CPU available for other duties.

Jumbo Frames
This adapter supports Jumbo Frames (also known as extended frames), permitting up to a 9,500 byte (KB) transmission unit (MTU) when running Ethernet I/O traffic. This is over six times the size of a standard 1500 byte Ethernet frame. With Jumbo Frames, networks can achieve higher throughput performance and greater CPU utilization. These attributes are particularly useful for database transfer and tape backup operations.

Management Support
This adapter ships with agents that can be managed from HPE Systems Insight Manager or other management application that support SNMP.

Network Adapter Teaming
This adapter support for NIC teaming helps IT administrators increase network fault tolerance and increased network bandwidth, the team of adapters can work together as a single virtual adapter, providing support for several different types of teaming enabling IT administrators to optimize availability, improve performance and help reduce costs.

Optimized for Virtualization
I/O Virtualization support for VMware NetQueue and Microsoft VMQ helps meet the performance demands of consolidated virtual workloads.

Preboot eXecution Environment (PXE)
Support for PXE enables automatic deployment of computing resources remotely from anywhere. It allows a new or existing server to boot over the network and download software, including the operating system, from a management/ deployment server at another location on the network. Additionally, PXE enables decentralized software distribution and remote troubleshooting and repairs.

For overall improved system response, this adapter supports standard TCP/IP offloading techniques including: TCP/IP, UDP checksum offload (TCO) moves the TCP and IP checksum offloading from the CPU to the network adapter. Large send offload (LSO) or TCP segmentation offload (TSO) allows the TCP segmentation to be handled by the adapter rather than the CPU.

Precision Time Protocol (IEEE 1588 PTP)
Synchronization of system clocks throughout a network, achieving clock accuracy in the sub-microsecond range, making it suitable for measurement and control systems.
