The Intel X540 family of products works with existing networks today. It works with legacy Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switches and Cat 6A cabling. Install the Intel X540 adapter into a server and the auto-negotiation between 1GbE and 10GbE provides the necessary backwards compatibility that most customers require for a smooth transition and easy migration to 10GbE. When time and budget allows, 10GBase-T switches can be added any time to experience the full benefits of 10GbE.

The Intel Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X540 is the low cost way to deploy 10GbE in your data center today. The Intel X540 uses low cost, Cat 6 and Cat 6A cabling. Chances are this cabling already exists in the data center. A way for Intel to reduce cost and power is to integrate components into a single-chip solution. Of course, integration is what Intel does best. With the Intel X540 controller, the MAC and the PHY are integrated into a single-chip solution. With lower cost and power, 10GBase-T is ready for broad deployment. 10GBase-T
