Napatech Announces 40G Network Adapter

Napatech has announced the world's first 40 Gbps Ethernet adapter for network monitoring and analysis. The NT40E2-1 intelligent network adapter provides a single QSFP-based 40 GbE port and can be used for both packet capture and transmission.

The NT40E2-1 is one of the very first 40 GbE network adapters on the market, but in contrast to other vendors, Napatech focuses exclusively on the needs of network appliance vendors for full packet capture and transmission with zero packet loss.

Intelligent features are provided in the NT40E2-1 for frame decoding, intelligent flow detection and distribution to up to 32 CPU cores, which can off-load and accelerate the performance of network appliances. Nanosecond precision time-stamping and time synchronization are also provided for highly accurate latency measurements.

The NT40E2-1 network adapter product will be demonstrated at the Interop Las Vegas conference from the 8th to the 12th of May on Napatech's booth. The NT40E2-1 will be generally available in Q2 2011.
