"Network traffic continues to grow as more applications are being supported by IP networks", stated Erik Norup, President, Napatech Inc. "There is therefore a need for network appliances with higher port densities as IP networks are extended to keep up with demand."
The announcement of the NT40E2-4 follows the recent announcement of the award winning NT40E2-1 single port 40 GbE network adapter, the world's first 40 GbE intelligent network adapter, which is now shipping to customers. The new NT40E2-4 provides the same features and performance for both SONET/SDH and Ethernet interfaces.
"The NT40E2-1 and NT40E2-4 can be seen as complementary products", added Norup. "It won't be possible to upgrade all network interfaces to 40 GbE right away, so having a complementary 4x10 GbE network adapter that is plug-and-play compatible helps in migrating the existing network appliance from 10 GbE to 40 GbE as the network is upgraded."
All Napatech network adapters are supported by a common driver providing a single application programming interface. This allows OEM vendors to develop application software that is suitable for a range of network appliance products supporting multiple 1 GbE, 10 GbE and 40 GbE interfaces.
