The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
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.

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".

Fiber Gigabit PCI Express x4 Adapter
The DGE-560SX Fiber Gigabit PCI Express x4 Adapter is a high-performance network card that lets businesses take advantage of the PCI Express (PCIe) slots of their servers to enhance network performance with fiber-optic connectivity. The PCIe architecture ensures dedicated input/output (I/O) bandwidth for the adapter, ensuring high performance without bus sharing for Gigabit Ethernet connectivity in fiber-optic networks.

PCI Express Interface
The DGE-560SX supports 2Gbps transfer rate between the adapter’s board and the server host. It provides unsurpassed robustness, reliability and performance, and is the optimum I/O connectivity solution for a wide spectrum of server, storage and system area networks (SAN). As a successor to the PCI and PCI-X interfaces, the PCI Express serial bus eliminates many of the inefficiencies of parallel PCI and PCI-X architectures. With lower pin counts and lower power consumption requirements, the DGE-560SX adapter also reduces system power requirements. PCI Express is backward compatible with PCI and PCI-X addressing, which allows all existing applications and Operating Systems to function unchanged.

Fiber-Optic Connection
With fibre optic cable, distance can reach up to 550m and network speed 2000Mbps (full-duplex). The adapter offloads the host operating system overhead by providing on-board verification of IP header and TCP/UDP checksum for data received, in turn freeing up server processing power for other applications.

VLAN & QoS Support
The DGE-560SX adapter provides on-board screening of VLAN tagged Ethernet frames compliant with IEEE 802.1Q. This allows the server to operate in a flexible and secure network configuration in a standards-based environment. The adapter supports 802.1p Priority Queues for improved delivery of delay-sensitive data such as voice and video.
The DGE-560SX supports other advanced features such as Jumbo frames of up to 9KB and Promiscuous mode. It supports ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) specifications to enable OS-directed configuration and Power Management (OSPM) to enumerate and configure server motherboards. The adapter supports SNMP agent for management under an SNMP-based platform.

Hot Swap Capability
It is often difficult or impossible to schedule downtime on a server to replace or install peripheral cards. As a PCI Express card, the DGE-560SX provides native support for hot plugging and hot swapping, which makes it ideal for installation in a server. This hot swap capability makes it easy for network administrators to add, change or remove I/O peripherals while minimizing the server downtime.
