Expands NAS potential with dual PCIe slots
The TVS-873e features a pair of PCIe (Gen3 x4) slots, allowing for installing optional single/dual-port 10GbE NICs to accelerate applications that demand higher bandwidth such as virtualization, media workflows, and backup/restoration tasks for an ever-growing amount of data; or a USB 3.1 Gen2 (10Gb/s) expansion card for transferring large media files to and from USB storage. You can also insert QM2 cards or wireless network cards to extend NAS functionality.
