The 2-Port 10/100/1000 Base-TX Ethernet PCI-X Adapter is a full duplex, dual ported, gigabit Ethernet adapter that can be configured to run each port at 10, 100, or 1000 Mbps data rates. The adapter connects to the system using a PCI or PCI-X bus and connects to a network using standard unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable for distances of up to 100 meters. AIX Network Installation Management (NIM) boot capability is supported with this adapter. The adapter conforms to the IEEE 802.3ab 1000 Base-T standard. The adapter also supports jumbo frames when running at the 1000 Mbps speed
