Description: A6847A 1000BASESX (FIBRE) PCI LAN ADAPTER for -UX Hewlett-Packard Part# A6847A
Overview: The demand for higher-speed network connections is growing at a tremendous rate in order to keep pace with the speed requirements of applications such as SAP R/3 database backups medical CAD/CAM 3D modeling animation video and more. Internet data centers process terabytes of data daily. Processing sharing and distributing this data requires faster and faster networks. Intelligent adapters which take on more of the network processing from the server are becoming critically important in helping servers cope with the onslaught of traffic running at gigabit/second speeds. To maximize server CPU efficiency for an effective Gigabit Ethernet implementation adapters should not only perform TCP/IP checksum interrupt coalescing and byte swapping but also enable the reduction of host data copy operations. The HP Gigabit Ethernet LAN solutions perform all of these functions and fully support the IEEE 802.3ab and 802.3z standards for Gigabit operations.
