M.2 Gigabit Ethernet Fiber Network Interface Card for Dell OptiPlex™ 7040/7050 Micro PCs & Wyse 7000 Series

NM2-GXE-2230-xx-01 Series



Transition Networks M.2 Gigabit Ethernet Fiber Network Interface Card (NIC) provides a fiber optic interface for the Dell OptiPlex™ 7040/7050 Micro PCs and the Wyse 7000 Series thin clients. The NM2-GXE-2230-xx-01 Series consists of a M.2 NIC that installs into the OptiPlex Micro PC’s M.2 “A or E keyed” interface, a fiber 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 fiber adapter. The fiber optic adapter is available with either a 1000Base-SX LC optic or open SFP (SFP module sold separately).
