HP NC522SFP Dual Port 10GbE Server Adapter
HP NC522SFP Dual Port 10GbE Gigabit Server Adapter. The NC522SFP is an eight lane (x8) PCI Express (PCIe) 10 Gigabit network solution offering the highest bandwidth available in a ProLiant Ethernet adapter. This dual port PCI Express Gen 2 adapter supports SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) connectors, requiring either Direct Attach Cable (DAC) for copper environments, or fiber transceivers supporting SR, LR, or LRM optics plus fiber cables for fiber optic environments.
The two ports on the NC522SFP have a theoretical maximum of 40Gbps full-duplex, bi-directional throughput. Using Direct Attach Cable (DAC) available from HP, the NC522SFP runs on copper cable. Fiber optic modules and cables available from HP allow the NC522SFP to connect to SR, LR, and LRM environments..
