The NC532m is a Flex -10 enabled 10 Gigabit Ethernet network adapter for the ProLiant c-Class BladeSystem. The adapter is a dual port 10GbE mezzanine, that when paired with the new 10Gb Virtual Connect Module provides up to eight physical function NICs that can be configured to operate at any speed from 100Mbs to 10Gbs. The NC532m will also support 10Gb connections when paired with the 6120XG Blade Switch. The adapter ships with support for VLAN tagging, QoS, teaming (bonding), Receive Side Scaling (RSS) and PXE.
The NC532m adapter is supported in most ProLiant c-class server Type I and II mezzanine slots allowing customers to provision their servers with unprecedented bandwidth never before available in a blade.

Supported per ProLiant c-Class server, in mezzanine slots 2 or 3 (full height servers) or slot 2 (half height servers). Supported in any available slot on G6 and all G7 servers, Type I Adapter, Supports HP's exclusive Flex-10 technology, IEEE 802.1p QoS 802.3x flow control, and 802.3ap 10GBase-KR, 4K Jumbo frames, Dual 10Gb ports offer up to 40Gb/s bidirectional theoretical throughput, Set any bandwidth from 100Mb to 10Gb on up to four "Physical Function" NICs per port.
The 20,000 Mbps full duplex Ethernet transfer rate per port (40 Gbps aggregate full duplex) delivers outstanding network performance that improves response time and removes bottlenecks required for the next generation data center. Ten Gigabit Ethernet bandwidth is ideal for high performance computing, database clusters, iSCSI storage, storage backups, grid systems, virtualization, server and I/O consolidation, fabric consolidation, and more.
The NC532m support for jumbo frames (also known as extended frames) permit up to a 4K byte transmission unit (MTU), which is over 2 times the size of standard 1500 byte Ethernet frame. The use of jumbo frames is a way to achieve higher throughput and better CPU utilization. Jumbo frames are particularly useful for database transfers and tape backups
For overall improved system response, the NC532m supports standard TCP/IP stateless offloading techniques including:
- TCP/IP checksum offload (TCO) moves the TCP and IP checksum offloading from the CPU to the network adapter. - Large send offload (LSO), also known as TCP segmentation offload (TSO), allows TCP segmentation to be handled by the adapter rather than the CPU.
TCP/IP Offload Engine (TOE) moves the processing of data in the TCP protocol stack from the server CPU to the network card, freeing CPU cycles for other duties.
ProLiant Network Adapter Teaming provides fault tolerance and load balancing across a team of two or more network adapters. The team of adapters works together as a single virtual adapter. Support for several different types of teaming is included. Teaming offers IT professionals an easy, efficient, and cost-effective way to provide network fault tolerance and increased network bandwidth.
