Advantages of Using the HPE 554M Adapter

The HPE 554M FlexFabric 10 GB 2 Port 554M Adapter has several advantages that make it an excellent choice for high-performance networking applications. Some of the key advantages of this adapter include:

  • High-speed performance: The HPE 554M Adapter provides 10 GB Ethernet connectivity, which delivers superior speed and performance for data-intensive applications. This enables faster data transfer rates, reduces network congestion, and enhances overall system performance.
  • Low-latency: The HPE 554M Adapter features low-latency Ethernet, which minimizes delays in data transmission and enables faster response times. This is particularly important for real-time applications such as video streaming, gaming, and financial transactions.
  • Increased scalability: The HPE 554M Adapter provides a flexible and scalable solution for high-performance computing environments. It supports both iSCSI and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) protocols, which enable greater scalability and network flexibility.
  • Reduced power consumption: The HPE 554M Adapter is designed to minimize power consumption, which can help reduce energy costs and enhance overall system efficiency. This is particularly important for data center environments where power consumption is a key concern.
  • High reliability: The HPE 554M Adapter is built with high-quality components and is rigorously tested to ensure maximum reliability and uptime. This reduces the risk of system downtime and helps ensure that critical applications are always available.
  • Easy to install and manage: The HPE 554M Adapter is designed for easy installation and management, with a user-friendly interface and built-in management tools. This simplifies the deployment and management of the adapter, which can help reduce IT costs and enhance overall system efficiency.

Troubleshooting of 2 Port Adapter

The HPE 554M FlexFabric 10 GB 2 Port 554M Adapter can experience a range of issues that require troubleshooting to resolve. Here are some common troubleshooting steps to take:

  • Check the physical connections: Make sure that the adapter is properly seated in the PCIe slot and that the cables connecting it to other devices are securely plugged in.
  • Verify the device drivers: Check that the device drivers are properly installed and up to date. You can do this by visiting the HPE website and downloading the latest driver software for the adapter.
  • Check for conflicts with other hardware or software: Verify that there are no conflicts with other hardware or software on the system that could be causing issues with the adapter.
  • Update the firmware: Check that the firmware for the adapter is up to date. You can download the latest firmware from the HPE website.
  • Review the system logs: Check the system logs for any error messages or other indications of issues with the adapter. This can help identify the cause of the problem and guide further troubleshooting.
  • Verify the adapter settings: Make sure that the adapter is configured correctly. Check the adapter settings to ensure that they match the requirements of the network and other connected devices.
  • Test the adapter: Conduct tests to verify that the adapter is functioning properly. You can use diagnostic tools to perform tests on the adapter and verify its performance.
  • Check the network: If the adapter is having trouble connecting to the network, verify that the network settings are correct and that other devices on the network are functioning properly.

Power Consumption

The HPE 554M FlexFabric 10 GB 2-port 554M Adapter is designed to provide high-speed network connectivity while consuming minimal power. The power consumption of the adapter depends on several factors, including the operating conditions and the configuration of the adapter.

The HPE 554M Adapter has a maximum power consumption of 6.5 watts per port, which means that the maximum power consumption for a fully loaded adapter with two ports is 13 watts. However, the actual power consumption may be lower depending on the usage scenario and configuration of the adapter.

The adapter is designed to provide energy-efficient Ethernet (EEE) and DMA coalescing capabilities, which can help reduce power consumption when network traffic is low. The EEE feature allows the adapter to automatically enter a low-power state when the network is idle, while the DMA coalescing feature can reduce the number of interrupts and the amount of data traffic, resulting in lower power consumption.

In addition, the HPE 554M Adapter supports Wake-on-LAN (WoL), which allows the adapter to be powered up remotely when the system is in a low-power state. This feature can be useful in environments where systems are turned off when not in use to save power.

About Refurbished Products

Refurbished products are typically refurbished by an Original Manufacturer or an affiliate of the manufacturer or 3rd party facility. This product may have minor blemishes due to normal product usage and doesn't necessarily come with documentation and software unless indicated, but has been well tested and generally has never had any defects.

Network Adapters

A network adapter also called a network interface card is a plug-in card that serves to allow computers to both transmit and receive data on a local network. It is a component of a computer's internal hardware that facilitates communication over a network.

In a more current context, network adapters will refer to an Ethernet adapter where the Ethernet circuitry is built into motherboards of the latest desktops and laptop computers. Other times, a network adapter may also refer to a wireless (Wi-Fi) adapter.

In all instances, the adapter allows a computer to connect with another computer, a server, or other networking devices through a LAN connection. The use of a network adapter is not limited to wired connections as it is used for wireless networks. The adapters for wired networks come with an RJ-45 port that may use either the twisted or untwisted pair cables for network connectivity. For the wireless adapters, the network connection is facilitated through a built-in antenna or an externally connected antenna. Both the wired and wireless network adapters support the popular LAN protocols including TCP/IP. We have 1-port, 2-port, 4-port, 6-port, 8-port, and 16-port options that support speeds of 10, 25, 40, or even 100 Gigabits.

The plug-in network interface cards (NICs) are normally used in high-performance machines especially if a faster Ethernet standard is relatively new and available but is yet to become mainstream. In fact, the major difference between network adapters lies in the network protocol it supports.

We have the different types of network adapters necessary for building computer-to-computer networks that don't have a switch or hub. All the network adapters are fairly inexpensive and readily adaptable to different applications within a network. Some of the common types available are:

Network adapters common types

  • Desktop Network Interface Card: This adapter is usually connected to a PCI or PCIe slot, whichever is available on the motherboard of your desktop computer. You will need to open your computer's case and it, therefore, presents the most difficult installation method. The PCIe slot is generally found in new computers.
  • PC Card or PCMCIA Card: PCMCIA is the abbreviation for Personal Computer Memory Card International Association. The name has undergone changes over time to be referred to as a PC Card or ExpressCard. For dimensions, the PC card is almost similar in size to a credit card but is significantly thicker. The PC card is connected to a PC or PCMCIA card slot in your desktop computer or laptop computer.
  • USB adapter: This network adapter is typically a small device, similar to a thumb drive, with a USB interface. Installation is easy and straightforward since it is plugged into the USB port of your desktop or laptop computer or other network devices that have a USB port.
  • Wireless game adapters also referred to as media adapters, are connected to older game consoles and home entertainment devices so as to act as a bridge to Wi-Fi capability. They help expand functionality on these entertainment devices through connections to the internet.
