PCIe network interface card / Ethernet
The N-GXE-POE-xx-01 is a Fiber Gigabit Ethernet PCIe Network Interface Card (NIC) which provides connectivity to a secure fiber network while also delivering power to a PoE powered device (PD), such as a VoIP phone, with a copper UTP interface. It fully complies with all IEEE 802.3z and 1000Base-X standards, providing up to 2000 Mbps full-duplex bandwidth capacity.Developed to support high-end users, this (2) port NIC has (1) 1000Base-X fiber network interface port (SFP version is 100/1000Base-X) and (1) switched 10/100/1000Base-T port supporting IEEE 802.3at PoE+ power. It is designed to allow a PC to power a VoIP phone, or any other traditional copper powered device, over a secure fiber network. Additionally, the NIC also has the ability to provide traffic switching functions between the copper and fiber ports, even when the PC is in a sleep mode.Combining the functions of PC connectivity and VoIP phone connectivity into one device saves installation time, expense, and the space of having two devices at the desktop. When the VoIP traffic is filtered and prioritized by third-party devices like an Ethernet switch and the IP phone, this PoE NIC will pass all tagged traffic ensuring users experience a high level of quality of service. VLANs and Prioritization can also be configured at the NIC via Transition Networks’ PoE NIC utility software.
