Silicom’s dual-port Copper 10 Gigabit Ethernet Bypass server adapter is a PCI-Express X8 network interface card that contains two Copper 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GBase-T) ports on a PCI-E adapter.
The Silicom’s dual-port Copper 10 Gigabit Ethernet Bypass server adapter is targeted to an inline network system that maintains network connectivity when the system fails. Silicom’s dual-port Copper 10Gigabit Ethernet Bypass server adapter supports Normal, Bypass and Disconnect modes.
In Normal mode, the ports are independent interfaces. In Bypass mode, all packets received from one port are transmitted to the adjacent port.
In Disconnect mode, the adapter simulates switch/rout cable disconnection. Silicom’s dual-port Copper 10Gigabit Ethernet Bypass server adapter can Bypass or Disconnect its Ethernet ports on a host system failure, power off, or upon software request.
In Bypass mode, the connections of the Ethernet ports are Disconnected from the system and switched over to the other port to create a crossed connection loop-back between the Ethernet ports.
