Product Details

The QLE3442-SR is an Ethernet Adapters - available in 10GBASE-T (RJ45), SR optic, and direct attach copper (DAC) - support LAN (TCP/IP) traffic at 10Gbps Ethernet (GbE) line-rate speeds. The QLE3442-SR provides extremely low host CPU usage by enabling full hardware offloads.

The QLE3442-SR leverages QLogic’s Ethernet by providing the highest levels of performance, efficiency, and scalability for the enterprise data center.

For more effective utilization of the 10GbE bandwidth, the QLE3442-SR Ethernet Adapters offer switch-independent NIC partitioning (network partitioning [NPAR]), which enables segmentation of a single 10GbE port into multiple network partitions and dynamic allocation of bandwidth to each port. The segmentation allows IT organizations to optimize resource utilization while lowering infrastructure and operational costs.

The evolution of data centers - triggered by high-density server virtualization, software-defined networking (SDN), and multitenant cloud computing platforms - demands a high-performance 10GbE solution that boosts CPU efficiency, and reduces capital expenditures (CAPEX) and operating expense (OPEX) of the migration to 10GbE. The QLE3442-SR Ethernet Adapters are the solution of choice for workload-intensive computing environments, providing a reliable, high performance 10GbE connectivity solution.

QLogic QLE3442-SR 10GBASE-T adapters support the higher bandwidth needed for virtual environments while providing investment protection via backward compatibility with 1GbE networks.
