The Intel Gigabit CT Desktop NIC provides a complete end-to-end Gigabit solution from the server to the switch infrastructure and down to the desktop and workstation. Overall network reliability is improved by using Gigabit Ethernet.
Just as networks migrated from 10-Mbit to 100-Mbit and gained a 10-fold improvement, the same will be true when moving from 100-Mbit to Gigabit. By alleviating congestion and removing bottlenecks, the network simply performs better. Gigabit Ethernet's dramatic increase in popularity is based on its scalable performance, flexibility, ease of implementation and lowered costs approaching 10/100 Ethernet. As the trend for bandwidth-intensive applications continues, the need for high-performance connectivity solutions will fuel the Gigabit transition.
