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
