The Low Cost, Low Power 10Gb Ethernet Adapter for Advanced Datacenters
The Supermicro AOC-STG-12T is the lowest power and least cost 10GbE adapter solution in today’s data center marketplace.
The auto-negotiation feature between 1GbE and 10GbE provided by the AOC-STG-12T offers users the backwards
compatibility they need for a smooth transition to 10GbE. It reliably addresses the demanding needs of bandwidth-intensive
applications at a fraction of the cost of traditional 10GbE adapters by utilizing cost-effective RJ-45 connectors at a much longer
cabling distance. The Supermicro AOC-STG-12T 10GbE adapter is truly a best-in-class solution for advanced data centers.
