Sopto 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCI express (PCI-e) gen 3.0 Server  card is designed to integrate with PCIe storage, networking appliances and servers, including NAS and SAN, HPC clusters, and Cloud computing, and Security and Monitoring Appliances, such as Firewalls, IPS and IDS systems, WAN Acceleration, UTM and Analysis Probes. The Niagara 32714G3 server adapter is a PCIe x8, low profile, low power Quad Port 10 GbE NIC, with SFP+ pluggable modules for Multi-Mode, Single-Mode and Extended Reach Fiber media, based on Intel's 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller.  In addition, the network adapter can also be customized to include Bypass, TAP and Hardware Encryption acceleration.


The  10 GE NIC provides PCI-e 3.0 which is the next evolution of the ubiquitous and general-purpose PCI Express I/O standard. With the support of this standard SoptoPCI-Express 3.0 Server Adapter provides 8 Giga Transfers per second (GT/s) rate per lane, nearly doubling the interconnect performance bandwidth as compared to PCIe 2.0, while preserving compatibility with software and mechanical interfaces. 


By utilizing a more efficient 128b/130b encoding scheme while removing overhead, the interconnect bandwidth has grown to 8Gbps per lane. The server adapter possesses specialized features including layer 2 & 3 security such as IPSec & LinkSec, Intel® I/OAT Acceleration v3.0, VLAN Tagging, Stripping and Packet Filtering, FCoE Transmit, Segmentation and offload, and SNMP and RMON statistic counters.
