Dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet XMC
- Intel® 82599 Dual Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller
- PCIe x8 Gen.2 host interface
- Dual SFP+ connectors
- Compliant with VITA 42.0-2005, 42.3-2006 XMC specifications
The MIC-3666 is a low power, dual-port 10 GbE XMC, with SFP+ pluggable modules for multi-mode and single-mode fiber media and is based on the Intel® 82599ES 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller. The XMC provides a high performance PCIe x8 interface at 5 Gb/s per lane at an outstanding low power dissipation of less than 10W. Support for Intel®'s offloading and platform enhancement features yields maximum network throughput while preserving valuable CPU cycles for application processing.
The MIC-3666 features an Intel® 82599 which provides Intel® Virtualization Technology for Connectivity (VT-c) including Virtual Machine Device Queues (VMDq) and PCI_SIG compliant Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV), helping to reduce I/O bottlenecks, boost throughput, and reduce latency. Where virtualization is required, VMDqs improve performance by offloading the data-sorting burden from the virtual machine manager (VMM) to the network controller. The MIC-3666's specialized features include Layer 2 & 3 security with IPSec & LinkSec; Intel I/OAT Acceleration Technology v3.0; VLAN tagging, stripping and packet filtering; and TCP, iSCSI, and Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) offload.
