SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Chelsio Communications, Inc., the established leader in 10-Gigabit Ethernet and multi-port Gigabit Ethernet adapters with protocol acceleration technology, today announced its first protocol offload engine utilizing the PCI-Express host bus interface.

The T204-ET, a quad-port Gigabit Ethernet Protocol Engine, is designed for network servers and iSCSI target mode applications that have not yet migrated to the 10Gbps infrastructure. The T204-ET is the latest addition to Chelsio's extensive portfolio of protocol offload engines that enable superior throughput and low latency for storage and server applications.

In addition to the new T204-ET, Chelsio's product family also includes the T204-BT, a quad-port Gigabit Ethernet PCI-X bus adapter, the T210 10Gb Ethernet adapter, and the Terminator ASIC optimized for server and storage OEM applications. Each of the adapter and controller products feature full TCP/IP Offload (TOE) and iSCSI acceleration in hardware to deliver unprecedented network and storage performance.

The products are supported with full turn-key Linux software drivers from Chelsio that are compatible across the entire product family, greatly reducing design-in costs for OEMs and total cost of ownership for enterprise IT managers.

"Chelsio is the only company today supplying 10GbE and multi-port Gigabit Ethernet adapters with TCP Offload and iSCSI acceleration on a single hardware architecture and single software solution," said Kianoosh Naghshineh, president and CEO of Chelsio Communications. "We are now further expanding our product portfolio and leadership position with support for PCI-Express platforms."
