  • Gigabit Ethernet Throughput     Up to 1000Mbps Ethernet transfer rate delivers outstanding network performance that improves response time and removes bottlenecks across the entire network.
  • TCP/IP Protocol Offloading     TCP/IP Offload Engine (TOE) moves the processing of data in the TCP protocol stack from the server CPU to the network card, freeing CPU cycles for other duties. The NC380T supports TOE when Windows TOE Chimney is installed. With TOE, network communications are improved, and server efficiency is increased
  • Accelerated iSCSI     Accelerated iSCSI allows the NC380T to multi-function both as a network adapter and as a storage host bus adapter, thereby providing access to storage boxes and to servers over a single connection. Additionally, the NC380T offloads the iSCSI software to the hardware for improved performance.
  • Load Balancing     Transmit Load Balancing (TLB) and Switch-Assisted Load Balancing (SLB) are two advanced features used to build a bigger pipe for improved networking bandwidth. These port bonding techniques enable users to install up to two NC380T adapters in a ProLiant server and aggregate their throughput up to a theoretical maximum of four Gigabits per second full-duplex transmission. The NC380T can be configured to work with other NC-series Ethernet server adapter teams supported on ProLiant servers.
  • Checksum and Segmentation Offloads and Interrupt Coalescing     The NC380T features TCP Checksum Offloads as well as TCP Segmentation Offloads and Interrupt Coalescence. These features reduce the load on the CPU for overall improved system response. Interrupt Coalescence is a feature that groups multiple packets and issues a single interrupt to the host. This process improves host efficiency.

Scalability and Reliability

  • Tri-Speed Support     Because the NC380T supports 10Mbps Ethernet and 100Mbps Fast Ethernet in addition to Gigabit Ethernet, users are guaranteed end-to-end protocol support across their enterprise. Like all HP server adapters, the NC380T adheres to industry open standards, insuring that it will perform seamlessly with any network devices that also support IEEE standards.
  • Network Fault Tolerance (NFT)     Network Fault Tolerance, sometimes called "failover" or "NIC redundancy", allows for the installation of multiple NC380T server adapters or other network adapters so that the active device can be backed up by a redundant adapter to improve availability. The HP teaming utility also allows users to specify that when a failed adapter is fixed and replaced, the original adapter resumes its function as the primary network connection.

Network Management

  • Auto-negotiation     The NC380T automatically senses the speed of the device to which it is attached. It also automatically configures for half or full duplex, depending on the duplex mode of the switch, hub, or router at the other end of the cable.
  • Management Support     Like all HP server adapters, the NC380T ships with drivers and agents that can be managed from all versions of HP Systems Insight Manager, as well as using any management application that supports SNMP.
  • Server Integration     HP Systems Insight Manager can recognize the NC380T individually or in port-bonded teams, and can collect and report SNMP statistics on the adapter events. Additionally, Integrated Management Log (IML) support is provided by the NC380T for critical event logging on HP servers.
  • Configuration Utilities     Each NC380T ships with a set of utilities that allow the user to:
    • Enable initial diagnostics within Windows, Linux, and DOS operating systems
    • Configure network adapter teaming in a Windows environment. The Windows adapter teaming configuration utility includes a patented teaming GUI for Microsoft Windows 2000 and 2003 operating systems. Support for scripted installations of teams in a Microsoft Windows environment allow for unattended OS installations.
  • LED Indicators     Bracket LED indicators show link integrity, network activity, and network speed for easy troubleshooting.
  • Intelligent Networking Pack (INP)     The NC380T supports the ProLiant Essentials Intelligent Networking Pack (INP). INP is a software upgrade that improves the reliability and performance of ProLiant servers by enabling them to adapt to and change the network path in their infrastructure. INP can detect and analyze network bottlenecks or broken network linkages, and then steer traffic to the optimum route based on network conditions.
