IEEE 802.1Qav Audio-Video-Bridging (AVB) for tightly controlled media stream syn-chronization, bufferingand reservation
Reliable and proven Gigabit Ethernet technology from Intel Corporation
Filled with Performance Optimization Capabilities
The Intel® Ethernet Controller I210 Family contains four transmits and four receive queues for the single port. These queues offer Error Correcting Memory (ECC) protection for improved data reliability. The controller efficiently manages packets with minimum latency by combining parallel and pipelined logic architectures optimized for these independent transmit and receive queues. These queues, combined with Receive Side Scaling (RSS) and Message Signal Interrupt Extension (MSI-X) support, provide a toolset for optimizing the performance on multi-core processor designs. Advanced interrupt-handling features to manage multiple interrupts simultaneously, combined with intelligent filtering, ordering, and directing of packets to specific queues and cores, enables load-balancing the network traffic flows to improve throughput in multi-core platforms.Other performance-enhancing features include IPv4 and IPv6 checksum offload,TCP/UDP checksum offload, extended Tx descriptors for more offload capabilities, up to 256 KB TCP segmentation (TSO v2), header splitting, 40 KB packet buffer size, and 9.5 KB Jumbo Frame support.
Audio-Video Bridging (AVB)
The Intel® Ethernet Controller I210 Family supports IEEE 802.1Qav Audio-Video Bridging (AVB) for customers requiring tightly controlled media stream synchronization, buffering, and reservation. The 802.1Qav is part of the AVB specification that provides a way to guarantee bounded latency and latency variation for time-sensitive traffic and includes:
*Timing and Synchronization for time-specific applications (802.1AS).
*Stream Reservation (SR) protocol to guarantee the resources needed for Audio/Video (AV) streams (802.1Qat).
*Forwarding and queueing enhance-ments for time-sensitive streams (802.1Qav).
Power Management Technologies
Today, companies want to decrease energy consumption across the enterprises to reduce costs and environmental impacts, while also solving increasing important power density challenges. That's why Intel introduces new, advanced Power Management Technologies with the Intel® Ethernet Controller I210 Family that enables platforms to configure its power options and more effectively manage power consumption.
Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE)
The Intel® Ethernet Controller I210 Family supports the IEEE 802.3az EEE standard so that during periods of low network activity, EEE reduces the power consumption of an Ethernet connection by negotiating with the switch port to transition to a low power idle (LPI) state.
This reduces power to approximately 50% of its normal operating power-saving power on both the network and the switch ports. When increased traffic is detected,the controller and the switch quickly come back to full power to handle the increased traffic.
