Interface Masters Technologies Introduces PCI-e Gen 3.0 Quad Port Fiber 10 Gigabit Server Adapter Card

Niagara 32714G3 Quad Port SFP+ NIC Supports Intel 82599 Chipset in a Low Profile Form Factor

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 30, 2013) - Interface Masters Technologies, an industry leader and innovator in networking solutions, has announced the next evolution of its 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GE) Server Adapter Card family, the Niagara 32714G3. This PCI express (PCI-e) gen 3.0 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, the 82599. In addition, the network adapter can also be customized to include Bypass, TAP and Hardware Encryption acceleration.

The new Niagara 32714G3 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 Niagara 32714G3 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. This low-profile 10GE Network Adapter enables system vendors and integrators, to utilize the latest multi-port 10 Gigabit technology even in the most space sensitive server applications 1U and 2U chassis.

"The need for PCI-e GEN 3 resulted from relentless demand for higher bandwidth and higher port count and as new motherboards come standard with PCI-e Gen 3, Interface Masters has been launching this next generation line of Multi-port Intel based NICs to take advantage of these bandwidth and performance improvements," stated Ben Askarinam, founder and CEO of Interface Masters Technologies. "Interface Masters is committed to support its customers with the latest and most advanced technologies at an attractive price performance ratio."

Niagara 32714G3 provides features that are essential for servers and networking systems:

  • Intel 82599EB Dual MAC & PHY Ethernet controller
  • PCI-e x8 (Gen 3.0)
  • Low-profile form factor
  • Low power consumption
  • Full RoHS compliance
  • Compatible with Interface Masters Network Visibility tools and Network Packet Broker solutions

The product is available for evaluation and will be in full production early Q4 of 2013.
