The Most Advanced Ethernet Adapter for High-Density Server Systems

The Supermicro AOC-CTG-i2T is one of the lowest power and most cost effective 10GBase-T adapter solutions in today's data center marketplace. The auto-negotiation feature between 1GbE and 10GbE provided by the AOC-CTG-i2T offers users the backwards compatibility they need for a smooth transition to 10GbE. It reliably addresses the demanding needs of bandwidth intensive applications at a fraction of the cost of traditional 10GbE adapters by utilizing cost-effective RJ-45 connectors at a much longer cabling distance. The Supermicro AOC-CTG-i2T 10GbE adapter is truly a best-in-class solution for advanced data centers.

This product is only available through Supermicro.
