Dual-Port 10GbE Network Daughter Card (NDC) for Dell Blade Servers.
The Broadcom® 57712-k Network Daughter Card (NDC) is a flexible LAN on motherboard networking solution that supports switch-independent NIC partitioning — giving administrators the ability to divide a single network port into as many as four partitions and allocate bandwidth as needed.
High performance: Provides the highest performance levels for mission-critical enterprise and mega data centers.
Switch-Independent NIC partitioning (NPAR): Helps flexibly manage the 10GbE bandwidth allocation to virtual machines and applications by dividing a physical port into four logical ports.
No-compromise converged NIC: Broadcom leverages field-proven support for L2 networking, TCP/IP offload, iSCSI HBA offload — and FCoE HBA offload with low CPU utilization.
Low CPU utilization: Broadcom offload architecture helps minimize CPU overhead, freeing valuable CPU cycles for processing user applications
