Product Code: 313881-B21
The NC7170 features two ports on a single adapter, allowing customers to save valuable I/O slots for other purposes. Each port supports a PCI-X 64-bit/133MHz interface, which is also compatible with traditional PCI slots. The 10/100/1000Mbps capability enables the NC7170 to be used in Ethernet or Fast Ethernet legacy wiring plants, as well as for Gigabit environments. The high speed and increased data path, combined with the 128KB of onboard memory, make the NC7170 idea for ProLiant servers requiring the maximum in bandwidth with maximum port density.
The NC7170 is available in two versions: an Ethernet network adapter packaged with brackets that fit into a standard, full length ProLiant server slot (NC7170, SKU# 313881-B21), and a low profile Ethernet network adapter packaged with brackets that fit into low profile (half height) slots available on selected ProLiant servers (NC7170 LP, SKU# 383738-B21). Except for the bracket size, the two versions of this dual port Ethernet adapter have exactly the same features and functionality.
