The XtremeScale™ X2 and SFN8000 series adapters combine ultra low latency with precision time synchronization and hardware timestamping of all received network packets on either physical port of the adapter.


PTP packets can be received on any adapter port and ports can be configured in an active/backup failover configuration. LACP bonding is also supported. Hardware timestamping is done on all ports.
