The manual says that the PRO/1000 PF Quad Port Server Adapter works with 1000BASE-SX multi-mode fibers.
My question is: does it work as well with 1000BASE-LX single-mode standard?
Thanks for your help.
No, the optics in the Intel® PRO/1000 PF Quad Port Server Adapter only support the 1000BASE-SX standard.
The Intel® PRO/1000 MF Server Adapter - LX is the only Intel Ethernet adapter that supports 1000BASE-LX.
If you want this same Intel Ethernet controller and a PCI-Express* connector as found on the Intel® PRO/1000 PF Quad Port Server Adapter, the IBM PRO/1000 PF Dual Port Adapter LX, part number 41V2561, supports 1000BASE-LX and might work for you.
