Legacy PCI 10/100 Fast Ethernet Card

by AEI Intelligent Technologies

AEI Intelligent Technologies' single port 10/100 Fast Ethernet card (P130TX) is based on the "Legacy" Intel 21143-TD chipset.  This means the card is fully plug and play supported in all Windows and Linux (tulip.o) operating systems.  As a developer and partner of several UNIX-based OEMs, the AEI solution includes our own device drivers for FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris (x86 & SPARC), HP-UX (PA-RISC), and other high-end operating systems.


The P130TX was specifically design for the server environment.  High performance, high reliability, and fault tolerance are designed into the board.  Fast Ethernet networks can achieve up to a 300% improvement in performance without having to make a costly investment in Gigabit infrastructure.  AEI can make this claim because our clean design, high precision oscillator, integrated magnetics, and other high-end discrete components yield throughput that is second to none.  Furthermore, all resistors and capacitors are low profile surface mount, which eliminates the possibility of catching internal cabling and subsequently damaging key components on the board.  Surface mount components also have a higher MTBF (Mean Time Before Failure) when compared to through hole components. 


The cumulative result is higher performance, higher reliability, and significantly higher overall Return on Investment.


The P130TX is fully interoperable with existing Ethernet hubs, switches and routers.  AEI Fast Ethernet cards provided increased bandwidth for event the most congested network.  The P130TX was comprehensively tested, and performed at 99.9% of wire speed.  No other competitor, including on-board LAN connections, outperformed AEI's solution.


Advanced Server Features - with every adapter comes AEI's PacketEngine Software suite.  PacketEngine allows users to configure trunk groups based on the Physical Layer 1 (Port aggregation), as well as Layer 3 and Layer 4 criteria.  A user friendly Graphical User Interface (GUI) provides for Active Port Failover (all ports in the failover group Tx/Rx packets) Windows, Linux, Solaris, and other popular operating systems.  Finally Adaptive or Dynamic Load Balancing is provided.  Please, call 909-296-2022 for available OS and revision support.
