Thecus ups networkign speed big time

| Networking News | Posted: Aug 16, 2010 5:08 pm

For most of us at home and in the office the fastest networking speed we have to work with is Gigabit. In most homes and many small offices you are going to be stuck with plain 100Mbps Ethernet for the most part. There are lots of computers that support Gigabit networking today so that is becoming more and more common in many environments. In some enterprise settings Gigabit networking is not fast enough and for those folks a new 10Gb networking protocol is coming.

Thecus has unveiled a new network card made for the 10Gb spec called the C10GT. The card slips into the x4 or x8 slot on the mainboard and supports multiple 10Gb standards including IEEE 802.3ae, IEEE 802.3ak, and IEEE 802.1q VLAN. The network card also supports dual cable interfaces.

 

The card has ports for CX4 and SFP+ allowing the user to hook to copper wire and fiber optic networks. The card supports Windows Server, XP, Vista, and Linux machines and is compatible with WMI. Another nice feature is that the network card can be used inside some of the Thecus NAS devices to add more network performance.
