Dual Network Interface

The system features dual 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet interfaces that can be configured in any of four methods:

Stand Alone: Both adapters simultaneously receive and transmit data as a two logical channels. Ports can be connected to one or two different subnets.
Fault Tolerance: The second port automatically takes over on upon any failure of the primary connection (cable, adapter or port). If the connection to the primary adapter is restored, control passes automatically back to the primary adapter.
Load Balancing: If data flow increases to one network connection, traffic is automatically redistributed to ensure optimal network performance.
Link Aggregation: Both adapters simultaneously receive and transmit data as a single logical channel. Includes fault tolerance and load balancing. This feature requires a switch that supports Intel Link Aggregation, Cisco FEC, or IEEE 802.3ad (static-mode configuration only).
