(#2744) PCI 100Mbps Token-Ring IOA
The PCI 100Mbps Token-Ring IOA provides a single attachment to a 100Mbps, 16Mbps, or 4Mbps token-ring network. The feature consists of an IOA card, internal code which supplies IEEE 802.5 Media Access Control (MAC) and IEEE 802.2 Logical Link Control (LLC) functions. This IOA operates in half-or full-duplex mode.
A 2.44 meter (8-ft) token-ring cable is included with this feature. As an alternative, you can attach a separately priced twisted-pair cable to the RJ45 connection on the IOA. IBM Cabling System patch cables, included with this feature, can increase the length as required.
Prerequisites: If #2744 is used on #2790, PCI Integrated Netfinity Servers, one #0223 (100Mbps Token-Ring Specify) is required for each #2744.
PCI Card slots required: One.
