The ST1000SPEX42 4-port Ethernet Card is an IEEE 802.3/u/ab standards compliant PCIe network adapter, which adds connections to up to four separate high-speed Gigabit networks from a single desktop client, server or workstation.

Suitable for any PCI Express (x4) enabled computer, this Gigabit Ethernet Network Adapter Card offers a practical, cost-effective resource for business, corporate or government environments, with support for high performance 4-channel networking and maximum throughput up to 1000Mbps in each direction (2000 Mbps total) - up to ten times faster than 10/100 Ethernet.

Compatible with a broad range of operating systems, this versatile PCIe Gigabit NIC is suitable for many SMB and Enterprise applications such as virtualized environments that require multiple NICs (check your VM software for chipset compatibility).

The ST1000SPEX42 is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year hardware warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Ports & interfaces

Connectivity technology The technology that enables connectivity of the device, e.g. wired or wireless.
Wired
Host interface Interface that enables a host controller to communicate with a driver.
PCI Express
Interface Interface ports to connect pieces of equipment. USB (Universal Serial Bus) has become the most popular wired interface to connect peripherals. USB 2.0 supports speeds up to 480 Mbit/s (USB 1: 12 Mbit/s). The interface FireWire is also known as the IEEE 1394 standard. Enhanced IDE (EIDE)is sometimes referred to as Fast ATA, Fast IDE or ATA-2.
Ethernet
Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports Number of Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports allow a computer to connect to the ethernet.

10,100,1000 Mbit/s
Cabling technology Type of cable technology performance.
10/100/1000BaseT(X)
Wi-Fi Popular technology that allows an electronic device to exchange data or connect to the internet wirelessly using radio waves.
Full duplex A full-duplex system allows communication in both directions, and unlike half-duplex, allows this to happen simultaneously.

Design

Internal The product is built in.
Chipset Set of electronic components in an integrated circuit that manages the data flow between the processor, memory and peripherals. It is usually found in the motherboard of a computer. Chipsets are usually designed to work with a specific family of microprocessors. Because it controls communications between the processor and external devices, the chipset plays a crucial role in determining system performance.
