Smart NIC 7130 Quad 1GE


Product Overview

A PCIe Gen3.0 Smart Network Accelerator supporting quad 1GE copper interfaces. The board incorporates the state of the art Cavium OCTEON® III 71xx processor.

The smart Network Accelerator’s primary purpose is to offload x86 server processors to maintain data throughput and enhance efficiency and performance. The board can be used as an offload engine for deep packet inspection and analysis, content inspection and protection, and crypto engine to accelerate SSL and IPsec.

The board incorporates the Rhino Health Monitoring (RHM) tool, providing continuous monitoring of the on board CPU cores, board peripherals, and host processor via heartbeats, voltage, and temperature checkpoints.
