The 7036-P16 supports full-duplex operation up to 230K bps for any one port running, with the other fifteen ports running at
speeds not to exceed 115K bps. Operation with all sixteen ports running full-duplex at 115K bps is supported.
Network Throughput:
The 7036-P16 is an Ethernet attached device and as such any number may be attached to given network. However, the user
must realize that attaching more devices to any network reduces the overall network throughput and care must be taken to not
overload any given network.
Testing has shown that as many as eight 7036-P16 devices may be attached to a network without adversely affecting network
throughput. More devices may be attached, but network performance may be adversely affected.
Server Throughput:
Each 7036-P16 provides 16-Ports of asynchronous EIA-232 connectivity over a 10/100 Ethernet port at speeds up to 128 K
bps. Given that any number of 7036-P16 may be attached to a server, a single server, or server partition could in effect have a
large number of asynchronous EIA-232 connections. The user is cautioned that increasing the number of asynchronous EIA-
232 connections beyond 128 is not recommended.
