It can be installed in a compatible QNAP NAS or a Windows®/Linux® PC with PCIe 2.0 x4 slots, providing organizations or individuals with a flexible and economical 10GbE network connectivity solution.
The QXG-10G2T-107 uses the Aquantia® AQtion AQC107S Ethernet controller that supports 10/5/2.5/1Gbps and 100Mbps network speeds. The RJ45 connector design also allows users to use existing cables. Transmission speeds can reach up to 5Gbps when using CAT-5e cables, or up to 10Gbps when using CAT 6 (or advanced versions) cables, unleashing the full potential of the QXG-10G2T-107.
“As 10GbE network environment becomes more common, QNAP continues to deliver cost-effective 10GbE solutions,” said Dan Lin, Product Manager of QNAP, adding “Following QNAP’s release of the single-port Multi-Gig QXG-10G1T NIC, the newly rolled out dual-port QXG-10G2T-107 NIC also leverages Aquantia Ethernet controller to offer Multi-Gig transfer rates, helping users to easily upgrade their PCs or NAS systems with 10Gbps capability to accommodate intensive data transfer and boost productivity of team collaboration and personal workflows.”
Windows and Linux users can download drivers from NIC manufacturer Aquantia’s website. Using the QXG-10G2T-107 in a QNAP NAS requires QTS 4.3.6 or later.
Additionally, QNAP is offering 15% discount on popular PCIe network cards featuring Mellanox® ConnectX®-4 Lx SmartNIC - the 25GbE QXG-25G2SF-CX4 and 10GbE QXG-10G2SF-CX4 network NICs. Both cards can be installed in a NAS or PC, and support iSER (iSCSI Extension for RDMA) to offload CPU workloads and optimize VMware® virtualization performance.
confused by this diagram. isn't the white QSW switch series only have a single 10gbe? (the other 2 is SFP, and the remaining is all 1gbit ports). So if you got the desktop pc and the NAS connecting to the switch, one of them will be using a 1gbit port and be capped at that speed, am i understanding this correctly? because i recall earlier in the youtube even they mentioned to use the black qsw switch that comes with more than 1 x 10gbe port
