NEC Selects Chelsio 10GbE Adapters

NEC has selected Chelsio Communications' 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) adapters and ASIC solutions as the high-speed interconnect for its SIGMABLADE Server Blades, enabling server networking, storage networking and clustering on the single platform, which is targeted at medium- and large-sized enterprise environments.

NEC is utilizing Chelsio's S320EM-SB-C mezzanine card, a dual-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) adapter with PCI Express interface. It has the capabilities to offload TCP/IP, classification, virtualization and traffic management processing from the host systems, freeing up host CPU cycles for other applications.
