Napatech has a new 4-port 10 GbE intelligent network adapter. The NT40E2-4 provides the same feature set at double the port density of the NT20E2 (2 ports 10G). The new NT40E2-4 provides the same features and performance for both SONET/SDH and Ethernet interfaces.
The announcement of the NT40E2-4 follows the recent announcement of the NT40E2-1 single port 40 GbE network adapter, a 40 GbE intelligent network adapter, which is now shipping to customers.
The NT40E2-1 and NT40E2-4 can be seen as complementary products. Having a complementary 4×10 GbE network adapter that is plug-and-play compatible helps in migrating the existing network appliance from 10 GbE to 40 GbE as the network is upgraded.??
All Napatech network adapters are supported by a common driver providing a single application programming interface. This allows OEM vendors to develop application software that is suitable for a range of network appliance products supporting multiple 1 GbE, 10 GbE and 40 GbE interfaces.
