Product Details

With two 10GbE ports, the NC522SFP delivers the highest throughput of any ProLiant server adapter. The SFP+ connector cages enable ProLiant customers to deploy the NC522SFP in either copper or fiber optic enviornments.

Its dual port PCI Express Gen 2 adapter supports SFP+ (Small Form-factor Pluggable) connectors, requiring either Direct Attach Cable (DAC) for copper environments, or fiber transceivers supporting SR, LR, or LRM optics plus fiber cables for fiber optic environments.


  • The two ports on the NC522SFP have a theoretical maximum of 40Gbps full-duplex, bi-directional throughput
  • Using Direct Attach Cable (DAC) available from HPE, the NC522SFP runs on copper cable
  • Fiber optic modules and cables available from HPE allow the NC522SFP to connect to SR, LR, and LRM environments
