4x10G Solution NT40E3-4-PTP
4-PORT 10G PCIE GEN3

Data Sheet

40 Gbps PACKET CAPTURE AND ANALYSIS
The NT40E3-4-PTP SmartNIC provides full packet capture and analysis of Ethernet LAN at 40 Gbps with zero packet loss for all frame sizes. It allows real-time data from multiple points in the network to be captured and merged into a single analysis stream. NT40E3-4-PTP can also be used for in-line application acceleration. The Napatech NT40E3-4-PTP SmartNIC can also be used for 10 Gbps in-line application acceleration.

Intelligent features for flow identification, filtering and distribution to up to 32 CPU cores accelerate application performance with extremely low CPU load.

Flexible time synchronization support including PPS and onboard IEEE 1588-2008 (PTP v2) software PTP stack with dedicated PTP port.

The accelerator also comes in a NEBS level 3 compliant variant.
