HP NC110T PCI Express Gigabit Server Adapter

HP NC110T PCI Express Gigabit Server Adapter
The HP NC110T is a cost-effective Gigabit Ethernet server adapter that features single-port, copper, single lane (x1) PCI Express
capability, with 48KB onboard memory that provides 10/100/1000T auto-negotiated speed and duplex. Designed with ProLiant
server needs in mind, it offers these server features: Cold boot Wake-on-LAN (WOL), PXE, Jumbo Frames (9K), Large Send Offload
(LSO), TCP Checksum Offload, and includes brackets for both half (low profile) and full height server slots so that customers have
maximum flexibility using this server adapter with their ProLiant server.
The NC110T is based on the Intel 82572GI controller and supports these IEEE standards: 802.3, 802.3u, 802.3ad, and 802.3ab,
802.1x, 802.1Q and 802.1p. Validated by HP so that it meets the highest ProLiant standards and provides a seamless, network
solution that is integrated with HP SmartStart, Insight Manager, networking software, firmware, and agents. NIC teaming drivers are
available for all major operating systems along with teaming utilities, multiple VLAN tagging, configuration GUI and IPv6 packet
transmit and receive support (excluding all offload capabilities).

Gigabit Throughput
Combined with Legacy
Ethernet Support
10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet transfer rate delivers outstanding network performance that improves
response time and removes bottlenecks. Because the NC110T supports both 10Mbps Ethernet and
100Mbps Fast Ethernet in addition to Gigabit Ethernet, users are guaranteed end-to-end protocol
support across their enterprise.
PCI Express Interface
HP was an early champion of PCI Express bus technology and has played a key role in the development
and industry adoption of the PCI Express specification. The NC110T features an Intel 82572G1 chipset
and offers a single lane (x1) PCI Express bus based on the PCIe v1.0a standard.
Load Balancing
Transmit Load Balancing (TLB) and Switch-assisted Load Balancing (SLB) are two advanced features that
customers can use to build a bigger pipe for improved networking bandwidth. These port bonding
techniques enable users to install up to eight NC110T adapters (or a mix of other HP adapters totaling 8
ports) in a HP ProLiant server and aggregate their throughput up to a theoretical maximum of 16
Gigabits per second full-duplex transmissions.
Jumbo Frames
Jumbo Frames (also known as Extended Frames) offer a 9K byte Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU),
which is six times the size of traditional Ethernet frames. Like all HP ProLiant server adapters, the NC110T
supports jumbo frames as a way to achieve higher throughput and better CPU utilization when deployed
in a network infrastructure that supports them.
TCP Checksum Offload
and Large Send Offload
These features reduce the load on the CPU to improve improved overall system response. LSO is based
on both IPv4 and IPv6 and TCP Checksum Offload is IPv6 based.
Scalability and Reliability
Network Fault Tolerance Network Fault Tolerance, sometimes called "failover" or "NIC Redundancy," allows for the installation of
multiple server adapters so that the active device can be backed up by a redundant adapter to improve
availability. HP's teaming utility also allows users to specify that when a failed adapter is fixed and
replaced, the original adapter resumes its function as the primary network connection.
Distance capabilities
The NC110T supports cable runs up to 100 meters (328 feet).
Network Management
The NC110T automatically senses and configures itself to the speed of the device to which it is attached.
It also automatically configures for half or full duplex, depending on the duplex mode of the switch, hub,
or router at the other end of the cable.
The NC110T provides cold boot Wake-on-LAN (WOL) support through the PCI Express bus. A system
that supports Wake on LAN can remain available to a systems administrator during its normal downtime.
Once the machine is awakened, the systems administrator can remotely control, audit, debug, or
manage the machine.

Management Support
Like all HP ProLiant server adapters, the NC110T ships with drivers and agents that can be managed
from all versions of Systems Insight Manager. Additionally, it supports any management application that
supports SNMP.
Server Integration
The SmartStart configuration utility includes setup support for the NC110T so that the adapter can be
configured as part of the SmartStart configuration process. Insight Manager can recognize the NC110T
individually or in a port-bonded team, and it can collect and report SNMP statistics on the adapter
events. Integrated Management Log (IML) support is provided by the NC110T for critical event logging
on HP ProLiant servers.
Configuration Utilities
Each NC110T ships with a set of utilities that allow the user to:
Enable initial diagnostics within Windows, Linux, Netware, and DOS operating systems.
Configure network adapter teaming in a Windows environment. The Windows adapter teaming
configuration utility includes a patented teaming GUI for Microsoft Windows 2000 and 2003
operating systems. Support for scripted installations of teams in a Microsoft Windows environment
allow for unattended OS installations.
LED Indicators
Bracket LED indicators show link integrity, network activity, and speed on each port for easy
Maximum The remaining warranty of the HP product in which it is installed (to a maximum three-year,
limited warranty).
Minimum One year limited warranty.
