What is Multifuction NIC

Specs: N/A
Some network cards (NICs) are Multifiction NICs. What exactly does that mean? Does that just mean that they can be used to iSCSI to a netword drive or is there also something else?

It may have to do with that they are ethernet cable independent, for exmaple it doesn't matter if you use either a cross over or straight through cable on them. They will detect the cable type and adjust accordingly.

I just did a quick google search and found the following:


From the sounds of it, a multifunction NIC will do regular network data as well as iSCSI.

I'm sure there's probably more info available elsewhere but I wasn't going to invest too much of my time finding it since anybody can use google just as easily as I can.
