ET/10GigFailover CX4 (PCIe)

Two 10 Gigabit Ethernet Copper Ports, CX4, with Hardware Failover/Bypass

The ET/10GigFailover is built on Intel\'s 82598 Gigabit technology designed to spread interrupts across multicore CPU systems. The hardware Failover/Bypass function allows systems incorporating the ET/10GigFailover to eliminate single point of failure concerns by bypassing the system in the event of a power down or software lockup or failure. Additional features allow a system with the ET/10Gigfailover to be temporarily taken offline, allowing for safe upgrades or maintenance even from a remote location. A functional description of the bypass function can be found here.
