Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
Gigabit Ethernet PCI Server Adapter Card
Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
Category :
A NIC or Network Interface Card is a circuit board or chip which allows the computer to communicate to other computers on a network. When connected to the network, computers can share websites, files, printers and other resources. The most popular networking standard at the moment is Ethernet, which one can recognize by the rectangular connectors with eight wires in them. Wireless network with the 802.11b and the faster 802.11g standard is also increasingly popular, both at home and in the office, though it is not yet as fast as wired (ethernet) network. A public place where you can use wireless internet is called a "hot spot".

High Performance
A high performance adapters with a 64-bit/66MHz bus, wire speed, and 9kb jumbo frames support, Allied Telesyn’s AT-2971 supports the calculation of TCP, UDP, and IP checksums through the hardware platform
without time loss by the MAC controller for both transmission and receiving paths—a capability that leads to improvements on overall
system performance. In order to reduce the load on the CPU, Allied Telesyn’s AT-2971 uses interrupt moderation to group the huge
amounts of interrupts caused by small packets transferred at Gigabit speed enabling the handling of several data packets per interrupt.

High Reliability
The AT-2971 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter comes with a variety of reliability features aimed at maintaining the longest-possible connection through link aggregation, redundant switch failover, and PCI hot plug.The on-board sensors and driver functions monitor the health of adapters and their ports enabling pro-active network management.

Comprehensive Software Support
AT-2971 adapter cards feature a set of software programs that assist users with their network setups and configurations.The offline user
diagnostics program provides system administrators and engineers with a tool to analyze network adapters and check specific data. The Network Control program for Windows 2K, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 enables users to easily control and configure all their AT-2971 adapters.

Virtual Cable Tester™ (VCT)
The VCT program detects and reports potential cabling issues such as cable opens, cable shorts, or any impedance mismatches in the cable. It can also accurately locate the distance to the cabling fault within a tolerance of one meter, enabling IT staffs to quickly identify failing mechanisms and isolate the source of problems.
