Intel puts another foot into 10GbE

Punts server adapter that supports 1Gb and 10Gb speeds

Designing a Defense for Mobile Applications

Interop 2008 With a sweep of the Interop 2008 Las Vegas show floor, it's clear that vendors are confident that 10 Gigabit Ethernet technology is moving beyond the early adoption phase and into more storage networks and data centers.

Intel is among the big vendors at the conference embracing the transition, today announcing a stepping-stone server adapter that provides 10Gb throughput over standard copper cables. That means you can go bloody fast without having to install expensive fiber optic cabling.

Intel's new dual-speed 10GBASE-T adapter supports both 1GbE and 10GbE throughput for data migration operations. The 10 Gigabit AT Server Adapter works over short-range connections, with a 100m (328 feet) network transmission over CAT 6a cable, and 55m (180 feet) over CAT 6 cable.

Dell is to offer the device with its PowerEdge product line.

The server adapter will ship by the end of June, priced at $1,000, which is cheap as these things go.

The card should land in the same month as Intel's 10Gb AF DA Dual Port server adapter, announced last April. ®
