PCI Token Ring Interface card

Model: X1154A

Sun - Network adapter - PCI - Token Ring - Token Ring

Supporting 4 Mbps and 16 Mbps operation and multiple protocols, Sun's PCI Token Ring Interface card protects legacy investments and increases performance in multi-protocol environments. Today, the issue is no longer one of client-server versus mainframe networks. It's now a question of what configuration will allow the multi-protocol network to co-exist effectively, while optimizing performance. That's why Sun offers the PCI Token Ring Interface card. Because it supports 4 Mbps and 16 Mbps operation over UTP/STP media, and also multi-protocol support, including TCP/IP and SNA, this PCI card delivers high performance and assures compatibility with Sun PCI platforms and existing networks. By design, the same adapter can be used for both network clients and servers, simplifying network-wide deployment and making network administration more cost-effective. The card's unique combination of features simplifies installation, reducing administration costs. The adapter employs a completely switchless design, ensuring both easy configuration and high reliability. Plug-and-play support configures hardware settings automatically. For quicker system installation and relocation, WireSense automatically determines the media type in use, while Auto Ringspeed Detect automatically determines whether the system is connected to a 4 Mbps or 16 Mbps ring. Now there's a way to bridge the gap between Sun PCI platforms, client-server, and IBM mainframe environments, while simultaneously pushing performance and network compatibility to the maximum. The PCI Token Ring Interface card from Sun. It's the way multi-protocol networks are connecting.
