The Intel PRO/1000 PT Quad Port Bypass Server Adapters provide in-line server appliances, such as Intrusion Protection Servers (IPSes), with high-performance, low-latency, in-line connectivity, and a bypass mode to ensure business continuity. These adapters also use the PCI Express serial bus for greater throughput, and they support Intel I/O Acceleration Technology (Intel I/OAT) for further performance enhancement, including the reduced overhead so important to IPS applications. The Intel PRO/1000 PT Quad Port Bypass Server Adapters are intended for use by equipment manufacturer hardware designers in application- specific in-line server appliances, where a bypass mode is desirable. Given that equipment manufacturers typically write specific software applications for their in-line platforms, Intel only provides open source reference drivers for these adapters. Interested hardware designers may contact their local Intel representative for additional product or purchase information.
