Gigabit Ethernet SBus (GBE/S) 2.0

Model: 501-4375

Sun GigabitEthernet SBus - Network adapter - SBus - Gigabit Ethernet - 1000Base-SX

Sun GigabitEthernet adapters provide industry leading performance and are fully compliant with the IEEE 802.3z Gigabit Ethernet standard. Available in PCI or SBus interfaces, the Gigabit Ethernet 2.0 adapters provide outstanding performance and scalability for your Sun servers and workstations. As a leader in networking technology, it's no surprise that Sun offers one of the first 33/66 MHz Gigabit Ethernet adapters on the market. Sun's GigabitEthernet adapter provides ten times the bandwidth of Fast Ethernet while reducing host processing overhead. By reducing latency, the adapter enables unparalleled server throughput, so you get maximum return on your server investments. The Sun GigabitEthernet adapter replaces multiple 100-Mb/sec interfaces in congested servers, reducing administrative complexity and server slot costs. What's more, interrupt coalescing and buffer alignment save expensive server processing cycles. The adapter's advanced ASIC design integrates data-forwarding hardware, dual DMA channels, and 10/100/1000-Mb/sec Ethernet MAC. You get full scatter/gather support on any byte boundary and data transfer to memory locations aligned for application access and reduced network latency. Sun GigabitEthernet adapters combine high-speed networking with seamless integration.
