Intelligent Technologies' Quad Fast Ethernet (QFE) card (P430TX) is based on the
"Legacy" Intel 21143-TD chipset. This means the device driver is embedded into
many operating systems. It is fully plug and play supported in all Windows and
Linux operating systems. As a developer and partner of several UNIX-based OEMs,
the AEI solution includes our own device drivers for FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris
(x86 & SPARC), HP-UX (PA-RISC), and other high-end platforms.
and application servers on Fast Ethernet networks can now get the bandwidth they
need with the P430TX Quadport PCI network interface card. This high-performance
card can support four separate 10/100 Mbps copper network segments at full
bandwidth. With PacketEngine software, all four ports can be aggregated into a
single logical link with bandwidth up to 800 Mbps full-duplex. The P430TX
supports active failover to redundant server links so that critical application
server connections can be maintained at all times (in milliseconds).
"server class" adapters on the market today, the P430TX was designed for cross
platform, closed architecture support. This means additional noise impedance was
engineered into the board. The P430TX has a clean design, high precision
oscillator, integrated magnetics, high-end surface mount discrete components,
and additional filtering. The cumulative effect is a card that is high
performance, highly reliable, and fault tolerant... and a much higher return on
investment when compared to the competition.
P430TX is a 32-bit card, several OEM clients have commented as to its ability to
outperform many competitors' 64-bit cards. These performance characteristics,
combined with its relative low price has many Firewall OEMs switching to AEI.

PacketEngine Software suite. PacketEngine allows users to configure trunk
groups based on the Physical Layer 1 (Port aggregation), as well as Layer 3 and
Layer 4 criteria. A user friendly Graphical User Interface (GUI) provides for
Active Port Failover (all ports in the failover group Tx/Rx packets) Windows,
Linux, Solaris, and other popular operating systems. Finally Adaptive or
Dynamic Load Balancing is provided. Please, call 909-296-2022 for available OS
