PCIE Server NIC card Application

  • PCI-E NIC Cards provide redundant connectivity to ensure an uninterrupted network connection.

  • PCI-E NIC Cards are ideal for VM environments with multiple operating systems, requiring shared or dedicated NICs.

  • They are specially designed for desktop PC clients, servers, and workstations with few PCI Express slots available.

PCIe 2-Port 1GbE TX Adapter Overview


The IBM PCIe 2-Port 1GbE TX adapter is a full-duplex, dual port, gigabit Ethernet adapter.  The adapter interfaces to the system via a PCIe bus. This adapter can be configured to run each port at 10, 100, or 1000 Mbps data rates. The adapter connects to a network using a 4-pair CAT-5 Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) cable for distances of up to 100 meters (328.08 feet).

PCIe 2-Port 1GbE TX Adapter


This adapter is PCIe x4 capable and conforms to the PCIe 1.0a standard. The adapter supports AIX® Network Installation Management (NIM) boot capability. The adapter conforms to the IEEE 802.3ab 1000Base-T standard. The adapter supports jumbo frames when running at the 1000 Mbps speed. The adapter does not support a speed of 1000 Mbps speed in half-duplex (HDX) mode.


The adapter provides the following features:

Supports interrupt moderation to deliver increased performance while significantly reducing processor utilization

Supports dual port operation in almost any PCIe slot, except x1

Supports auto-negotiation, full-duplex only

Supports integrated media-access control (MAC) and physical layer (PHY)

Supports Fast Ether Channel (FEC) with the existing software

Supports gigabit Ether Channel (GEC) with the existing software

Supports IEEE 802.3ad (Link Aggregation control protocol)

Supports IEEE 802.1Q VLANs

Supports IEEE 802.3 z, ab, u, x flow control support

Supports IEEE 802.1p

Supports IEEE 802.3ab for TX

Supports TCP checksum offload transmission control protocol (TCP), user datagram protocol (UDP), Internet Protocol (IP) for IPv4 and IPv6

Supports TCP segmentation or large send offload

Supports EEPROM-SPI and single EEPROM

Supports interrupt levels INTA and MSI

Hardware certifications FCC B, UL, CE, VCCI, BSMI, CTICK, MIC

Network Controller (MAC) Intel 82571EB

Compliant with European Union Directive 2002/95/EC on the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment


To install the adapter, follow these steps:

1. Determine the PCIe slot in which to place the adapter.

The adapter has an x4 PCIe connector and can be placed in a x4, x8, or x16 slot. See the PCI adapter placement for information about the PCIe slots on your system unit.

2. Install the adapter by using the instructions in the system unit service guide.
