M.2 Gigabit Ethernet fibre network interface card


  • M.2 Gigabit Ethernet Fibre Network Interface Card (NIC) provides a fibre optic interface for the Dell OptiPlex™ 7060, 5060, and 3060 Micro PCs. The NM2-GXE-2230-xx-201 Series consists of a M.2 NIC that installs into the OptiPlex Micro PC’s M.2 “E key” interface, a fibre optic adapter that installs into the OptiPlex Micro PC’s Option port, and a 20-pin Flat Flex Cable (FFC) that connects the NIC to the fibre adapter.
  • The fibre optic adapter is available with either a 1000Base-SX LC connector or an open SFP (SFP module sold separately).
