The HP NC112T is a low-priced Gigabit Ethernet server adapter that features single-port, copper, single lane (x1) PCI Express capability, with 32KB onboard memory that provides 10/100/1000T auto-negotiated speed and duplex. It makes use of the latest Intel 82574L silicon and is suitable for both standard and low profile slots.
10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet transfer rate delivers outstanding network performance that improves response time and removes bottlenecks. Because the NC112T supports both 10Mbps Ethernet and 100Mbps Fast Ethernet in addition to Gigabit Ethernet, users are guaranteed end-to-end protocol support across their enterprise.
HP was an early champion of PCI Express bus technology and has played a key role in the development and industry adoption of the PCI Express specification. The NC112T features an Intel 82574L chipset and offers a single lane (x1) PCI Express bus based on the PCIe v1.1 standard
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 NC112T adapters (or a mix of other HP adapters totaling 8 ports) in a HP ProLiant server and aggregate their throughput up to a theoretical maximum of 16 Gigabits per second full-duplex transmissions.
Jumbo Frames (also known as Extended Frames) offers a 9K byte Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU), which is six times the size of traditional Ethernet frames. Like all HP ProLiant server adapters, the NC112T supports jumbo frames as a way to achieve higher throughput and better CPU utilization when deployed in a network infrastructure that supports them.
These features reduce the load on the CPU to improve improved overall system response. LSO is based on both IPv4 and IPv6 and TCP Checksum Offload is IPv6 based.
Network Fault Tolerance, sometimes called "failover" or "NIC Redundancy," allows for the installation of multiple server adapters so that the active device can be backed up by a redundant adapter to improve availability. HP's teaming utility also allows users to specify that when a failed adapter is fixed and replaced, the original adapter resumes its function as the primary network connection.
The NC112T supports cable runs up to 100 meters (328 feet).
The NC112T automatically senses and configures itself to the speed of the device to which it is attached. It also automatically configures for half or full duplex, depending on the duplex mode of the switch, hub, or router at the other end of the cable.
The NC112T provides cold boot Wake-on-LAN (WOL) support through the PCI Express bus. A system that supports Wake on LAN can remain available to a systems administrator during its normal downtime. Once the machine is awakened, the systems administrator can remotely control, audit, debug, or manage the machine.
