Now you can benefit from the Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop Adapters that maximize system performance and increase end-user productivity for mainstream PCs. Next-generation desktops will feature high-bandwidth applications encompassing voice, data, streaming video, video conferencing, and long distance storage area networks that will be hindered by Fast Ethernet technology. Fortunately, most copper networks are running over standard Category-5 cable that supports Gigabit speeds, allowing desktops to realize the full potential of these high bandwidth applications.
Simplify installation and maintenance with Intel SingleDriver technology -- Intel offers a single driver across all Intel PRO/1000 Desktop and Server Adapters. Intel SingleDriver technology makes it easier to administer and upgrade the latest generation of Intel adapters, which simplifies network management and reduces maintenance costs.
High-performing, auto-negotiating 10/100/1000 connection -- systems that are currently running at 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps can be upgraded with the Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop Adapter now, whether Gigabit switching is currently available or not. According to the Gartner Group, the average life of a PC is three years. By integrating an Intel PRO Gigabit Network Connection now, IT managers will save time, money and downtime when the network is upgraded later because the Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop Adapter will automatically detect and run at the higher speed when it becomes available.
Easy, cost-effective migration to Gigabit Ethernet over existing Category-5 cabling -- Category-5 cabling allows easy migration to faster networks and 10/100/1000Mbps flexibility to scale bandwidth as your network grows.
