Manufacturer’s Description

The HP NC6770 PCI-X Gigabit Server Adapter is the latest fiber-optic networking solution for ProLiant servers. The NC6770 is a single port fiber Gigabit server adapter that runs over multimode fiber cable. It is the first server adapter to combine Gigabit Ethernet speed with PCI-X bus technology for fiber-optic environments. Along with all the advanced features that ProLiant customers have come to expect, the NC6770 includes support for Jumbo Frames, Dual Address Cycles , and Pre-Boot Execution environment .

Color Temperature Maximum Warranty: The remaining warranty of the HP product in which it is installed (to a maximum three-year, limited warranty).
Number of SC Ports 1
Frequency Band Interrupt levels: INTABus architecture: PCI-X bus-mastering, compatible with existing PCI bus architectures Gigabit Ethernet Throughput:A 1000Mbps Ethernet transfer rate delivers outstanding network performance that improves response time and removes bottlenecks. PCI-X Data Path:HP was an early champion of PCI-X bus technology and has played a key role in the development and industry adoption of the PCI-X specification. The NC6770 is our first fiber-optic server adapter to feature a PCI-X 64-bit/133MHz data path, which yields faster transmissions with lower CPU utilization than earlier PCI-based, gigabit fiber solutions. Load Balancing:Transmit Load Balancing (TLB) and Switch-assisted Load Balancing (SLB) are two advanced features that customers can use to build a bigger pipe for improved networking bandwidth. These port bonding techniques enable users to install up to eight NC6770 adapters in a ProLiant server and aggregate their throughput up to a theoretical maximum of 16Gigabits per second full-duplex transmissions.
Management Management Support: Like all ProLiant server adapters, the NC6770 ships with drivers and agents that can be managed from all versions of Insight Manager Additionally, it supports any management applications that supports SNMP. Server Integration: The SmartStart configuration utility includes setup support for the NC6770 so the adapter can be configured as part of the SmartStart configuration process. Insight Manager can recognize the NC6770 individually or in port-bonded teams, and can collect and report SNMP statistics on the adapter events. Integrated Management Log (IML) support is provided by the NC6770 for critical event logging on ProLiant servers. Configuration Utilities: Each NC6770 ships with a suite of OS-tailored configuration utilities that allow the user to run initial diagnostics and configure adapter teams for Network Fault Tolerance, Transmit Load Balancing, or Switch-assisted Load Balancing (802.3ad static-mode configuration only) in the Windows 2000 and Windows NT operating systems.
