product details

The HP NC1020 is a low-cost, copper gigabit server NIC with basic server features targeted to entry and SMB ProLiant servers. It is a single-port, 32-bit PCI, 33/66 MHz, copper gigabit adapter with 64KB onboard memory that provides 10/100/1000T auto-negotiated speed and duplex. Even though its functionality is basic, it has been designed with server needs in mind and offers these server features: Wake-on-LAN, PXE support, as well as link and activity LEDs. Additionally, it supports these IEEE standards: 802.3, 802.3u, 802.3ad, and 802.3ab, 802.1x, 802.1Q and 802.1p.

Tested, validated and proven to meet demanding ProLiant standards with full software driver support, including: NIC teaming drivers for all major operating systems, teaming utilities, multiple VLAN tagging, a configuration GUI, as well as HP integration of NIC software, firmware, and agents with other options and the ProLiant server. Primarily targeted to the needs of ProLiant 100-series and 300-series customers who are price-sensitive and who do not require PCI-X performance and capability.

  • Designed to meet customer requirements for a cost-effective gigabit NIC comparable to the price of a 10/100 PCI NIC
