SMART NIC 6880 QUAD 10GE/1GE
A PCIe Gen2.0 x8 Smart Network Accelerator supporting hot plugging between quad 10GE and 1GE SFP+/SFP interfaces. The board incorporates the best-in-class Cavium OCTEON® II 6880 processor.
The smart Network Accelerator’s primary purpose is to offload x86 server processors to maintain data throughput and enhance efficiency. 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 CPU cores, board peripherals, and host processor via heartbeats, voltage, and temperature checkpoints.
