Model 6162

DSS Network's GigMAC PCI-X Model 6162 is a high performance Gigabit Ethernet controller for embedded applications in broadband telecommunication and data communications networks. It provides two fully independent 1000 Base-T copper connections over CAT5 cabling and is fully IEEE 802.3 compliant. The card's small form factor, low-profile 64-bit PCI design conforms to the PCI low profile specification and allows it to be used in low-height (1U) rackmount server chassis.

The GigMAC PCI-X Model 6162 uses an advanced 4th generation, high-performance, low power Gigabit Ethernet chip from Intel. It provides an onboard intelligent PCI-X based DMA engine and supports wire-speed 64-bit bus-master DMA operations utilizing maximum PCI bandwidth.

It is an ideal solution for today's converged, bandwidth intensive, multi-protocol networks. Applications include Switches, Edge Routers, Media Gateways, Broadcast Digital Audio and Video, Streaming Media, Internet Voice, Network Attached Storage, Storage Area Networks, Network Security Servers and Digital Imaging Products.
