The DGE-550SX fibre Gigabit adapter is a high-bandwidth network adapter, providing up to 2000Mbps full-duplex bandwidth capacity to support high-end servers. This adapter delivers added performance to the network while working with the existing LAN infrastructure. In addition, with advanced functions like VLAN filtering and hardware-based Chip-Level IP (CLIP) packet processing, the adapter provides added performance, flexible configuration and secure networking to users in a standards-based environment.
Delivering network speed up to 2000Mbps (full-duplex), the adapter brings ample bandwidth to servers. On-board verification of IP headers and TCP/UDP checksums for received data through built-in Chip-Level Internet Protocol (CLIP) offloads the server's overheads, making more of the server processing power available for the applications. This adapter uses the patented Jato Technology Propulsion algorithms to achieve dramatic increases in system throughput.
Support 32/64-bit PCI bus configuration
This adapter operates in 32-bit 33Mhz/64-bit 66MHz PCI slots. It auto-configures according to the different data path widths, while maintaining compatibility with various server configurations.
The adapter provides on-board screening of VLAN tagged Ethernet frames compliant with IEEE 802.3. This allows the server to operate in a flexible and secure network configuration in a standards-based environment.
Complete 1000Mbps Solutions
D-Link provides complete 1000Mbps solutions for servers. Servers with DGE-550SX Gigabit Ethernet adapter installed inside can connect to a fibre backbone through a D-Link Gigabit switch inter-connecting different departments, or directly to a department through a D-Link 10/100Mbps switch with Gigabit support. An integral part of end-to-end solution, this adapter combines the benefits of high-end Gigabit performance.
