HP Compaq Dual Port 10/100 Network Interface Card.
Compaq ships the industry’s only modular network interface controller that provides a scalable transition path from Ethernet to Fast Ethernet to Bonded Fast Ethernet to Gigabit network connections. The Compaq NC3134 Fast Ethernet NIC includes two 10/100 Base-TX ports with optional upgrade modules for two additional 10/100 Base-TX ports, a 100 FX port, or a Gigabit port. The NC3134 provides a cost-effective transition for server NIC upgrades. Its modular design enables additional fault-tolerant redundancy and upgradability to higher network performance without having to replace the base NIC. The NIC's dual ports allow customers to configure the NC3134 for failover to achieve greater reliability or for various modes of port bonding for greater performance. The modular design of the NC3134 enables uses to upgrade to two additional 10/100 ports, a 100Mbps fiber port, or to Gigabit Ethernet SX or LX.
