ENW-9801 10Gbps SFP+ PCI Express Server Adapter

ENW-9801 10Gbps SFP+ PCI Express Server Adapter

Planet have released a brand-new version of the 10Gbps SFP+ PCI Express Server Adapter – the ENW-9801 (V2). The newest version of the ENW-9801 is upgraded with PCI Express rev. 2.0 specification x4 interface and other advanced features as follows: 

- Smaller and Compact in design

-  Flexible 10G SFP+ Module Installation

-  Low Profile Bracket  

The Server Level Adapter to Expand Networking Environments

The Planet ENW-9801 is a PCI Express 10Gbps Ethernet Adapter designed to meet high-performance system application requirements. With the innovative PCI Express Bus Architecture, the Planet ENW-9801 provides superior performance than the network cards based on 32/64bit PCI architecture. It provides the best solution to one of the major issues of Server Farm Networks - communication speed. Ten times faster than the existing 1000Base-SX/LX fiber solutions, Planet ENW-9801 is designed to connect your servers and workstations, guaranteeing extremely high throughput and excellent signal quality. 

Moreover, the ENW-9801 supports IEEE 802.1Q VLAN which allows it to operate in a flexible and secure network environment. With 16K Jumbo Frame ability and IEEE 802.3 Flow Control support, it further optimizes throughput and wire-speed packet transfer performance without risk of packet loss. The high data throughput of the device makes it ideal for most 10 Gbps Ethernet environments.

10 Gigabit Performance Boosts Network Traffic

The Planet ENW-9801 is an optimal solution to Ethernet applications by providing low-power budgets and small form factor. It offers simple integration into any PCI Express x4 server slot via one SFP+ slot. The onboard controller featured on the Planet ENW-9801 integrates embedded technology and a 10GbE MAC into a single chip that offers up to 10Gbps of network throughput. Planet Network solution greatly reduces the TCP/IP packet processing tasks of the server’s CPU by performing enhanced data-handling algorithms, thereby providing nearly 10Gb line speed performance with the simplicity of a conventional Network Interface Card (NIC).
