Broadcom 57712-k Converged Network Daughter Card (NDC)

Broadcom 57712-k Converged Network Daughter Card (NDC)

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

Highlights

  • Supports both networking traffic and storage traffic over a single 10GbE connection.
  • Supports Switch Independent NIC Partitioning (NPAR) on a broad range of IO Modules (such as the M8024-k and M8428-k) or external 10GbE switches (through the 10GbE Pass Through Module-k).
  • Supports Data Center Bridging (DCB) — Data Center Bridging eXchange (DCBX)/Priority-based Flow Control (PFC)/Enhanced Transmission Selection (ETS) for Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and Lossless iSCSI-TLV on a broad range of DCBX capable switches (such as the M8428-k FCF switch module and many other external TOR switches through the 10GbE Pass Through Module-k).
  • Supports up to 8 virtual NIC ports with NIC partitioning. Each partition appears as a separate NIC to the operating system.
  • Provides a dependable, performance-focused solution that can be optimized for high throughput and high I/O per second with low CPU utilization.
  • NIC partitions can be assigned to networking or storage functions, such as Internet SCSI (iSCSI) or FCoE.
  • Optimizes performance with high throughput, low latency and minimal CPU utilization.
  • Provides robust and seamless manageability through management application software.
