MINNEAPOLIS Transition Networks, Inc., a leading provider of IoT and edge connectivity solutions, today released its PCIe 10 Gigabit Ethernet Fiber Network Interface Card (NIC) (N-TGE-SFP-02), a PCIe 3.0 x8 bus card supporting faster transfer speeds of up to eight Giga Transfers per second (GT/s) for servers or high-powered work stations.
Increased data and video traffic resulting from remote work and other factors during the COVID-19 pandemic has driven communication between data centers and the cloud to an all-time high. Overwhelming traffic affects available data center bandwidth, but the 10 Gigabit NIC provides relief in several ways.
The NIC supports server virtualization a process that uses software to consolidate data center servers into the cloud. It also improves efficiency and load balancing through teaming. Teaming balances web traffic across all installed NICs to increase bandwidth.
Federal agencies will find the NIC an ideal choice for fiber to the desk (FTTD) applications. The open SFP slots support single mode or multi-mode fiber, enabling a secure fiber network connection to remote terminals at a greater distance and without the electrical interference from EMI inherent in transmission over copper cabling. Transition Networks also offers a wide range of compatible SFP modules for use with the new NIC. This solution is Trade Agreement Act (TAA) and National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) compliant.
The NIC features two open SFP slots that can be used with 1000Base-X SFP or 10GBase-SR/LR SFP+ modules. Each port supports 10 Gbps bandwidth capacity for up to 20 Gbps full-duplex to support high-end servers, data center, server message block (SMB) and cloud computing applications. The NIC fully complies with IEEE 802.3ae and IEEE 802.3z standards.
The 10 Gigabit NIC also offers advanced features like VLAN support, link aggregation, smart load balancing and failover. It is ideal for high-speed data transfer applications supporting higher resolution surveillance images, streaming of video and multimedia content, and large file transfers. Its ability to provide secure transmission over fiber cabling also makes it a great addition to Transition Networks' broad portfolio of network adapters for FTTD applications.
Over the next two years, approximately 60% of service providers (both large and small) will adopt virtualization on a wide scale across their networks, according to the latest survey report from Ovum. Why are providers making these moves? Is there an easy way to start?
Learn how and why service providers are using virtualization to transform their networks. This webinar will look at how providers are leveraging virtualization to create more flexible and agile networks while also providing a better customer experience. Expert speakers from netElastic and Heavy Reading will address the industry drivers for network virtualization, the benefits that can be realized, the challenges to face and the results of virtualization being achieved by providers today.
Key topics will include:
Current network infrastructure and the move to virtualization
Benefits and challenges of network virtualization
How providers can get started
Service provider success stories: the decision to virtualize, the solution, and results
