Napatech NT100E3-1-PTP
1-PORT 100G PCIE GEN3

Data Sheet

 2 × 100 Gbps PACKET CAPTURE AND ANALYSIS
Use cutting-edge network acceleration technology to add real- time line rate performance to your application. Napatech 1-port 100 Gbps accelerators provide full packet capture and analysis of network data at 100 Gbps with zero packet loss. The Napatech SmartNIC will capture all frames, including erroneous frames normally discarded by standard NICs. The Napatech 1-port 100 Gbps accelerators can also be used for 100 Gbps in-line application acceleration.

The Napatech SmartNIC allows you to merge data from ports into a single, time-ordered analysis stream. It supports 1-128 packet streams using intelligent hardware flow distribution to allow your application to scale to higher packet rates with no packet loss. The Napatech SmartNIC will distribute packets based on flow or on L3/L4 filter criteria.

The 8 GB DDR3 RAM buffer allows buffering packets on the SmartNIC to prevent packet loss during peak server loads. Packets are hardware timestamped when they arrive at the network ports, ensuring that the timestamp is always reliable.

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