Increased data and video traffic resulting from remote work and other factors during the COVID-19 pandemic has driven communication between data centers and the cloud to an all-time high. Overwhelming traffic affects available data center bandwidth, but the PCIe 10 Gigabit Ethernet Fiber Network Interface Card (NIC) (N-TGE-SFP-02) provides relief in several ways, including server virtualization and teaming. Federal agencies will find the NIC an ideal choice for fiber to the desk (FTTD) applications. The open SFP slots support single-mode or multi-mode fiber, enabling a secure network connection to remote terminals. The NIC features two open SFP slots that can be used with 1000Base-X SFP or 10GBase-SR/LR SFP+ modules. Each port supports 10 Gbps bandwidth capacity for up to 20 Gbps full-duplex to support high-end servers, data center, server message block (SMB), and cloud computing applications. The NIC fully complies with IEEE 802.3ae and IEEE 802.3z standards and is Trade Agreement Act (TAA) and National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) compliant.
