Boost your network performance, improve its flexibility
|Transition to the new generation of Ethernet connectivity with Intel network adapters, part of the Dell PowerEdge Select Network Adapter family of modular networking cards. Open up your connectivity options while improving your I/O (input/output) performance with enhanced, integrated features. Intel network adapters for Dell PowerEdge servers are designed to help you improve not only the speed of your networks but also the energy efficiency of your servers.|
|Convert to 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) |
Make an easy and cost-effective transition to high-speed 10GbE with Dell Select Network Adapters, including Intel LAN on Motherboard (LOM) options.
| Expand your network as your business grows |
Ensure compatibility with 1GbE infrastructures and have flexible options for 1-meter to 100-meter deployments to help enable easy expansion of your growing business’s network.
| Improve network performance and flexibility |
Help reduce network latency and server power consumption with Intel Integrated I/O and Intel Data Direct I/O. Provide network flexibility with Intel I/O virtualization as well as Internet SCSI and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) connectivity.
