Hi,

I would like to connect a card with 1 x 100Gb qSFP28 to another device with 4 x 25Gb SFP28s. The other device is using the NICs in an Intel IceLake D 1700 series CPU. Is there a firmware available for the E810 to support splitting it into 4 x 25Gb ports from a single QSFP28?

 

Also, is there a configuration tool for the e810 as we can only find one for the XL710

Thank you for posting in Intel Ethernet Communities

 

We have a E810 product features matrix available which you can refer list of feature support by the software drivers.

Hi Irwan,

 

I have seen that product feature matrix but to me it's not clear - do you think "QSFP28 Direct Attach Copper breakout cables" means the card can support 4 x 25Gb from the single QSFP28?

Hi clong10,


Yes, please use the EPCT (Ethernet Port Configuration Tool) to change the port.

Videos are available for the configuration tool.
