Token Ring specifications
The Ethernet connection to the printer controller processor must
be compatible with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics
Engineers (IEEE) 802.3
The Ethernet interface on the processor is a 10Mb/sec twisted
pair standard (10BaseT and 100BaseT). The MII (for
UltraSPARC) Coax Ethernet is enabled with an adapter cable.
The Ethernet interface on the printer controller processor is a
10Mb/sec twisted pair standard (10BaseT and 100BaseT).
Attachment Unit Interface (AUI) Coax Ethernet is enabled with an
Work with your system administrator to assess what type of
network you have and what modifications need to be made to
supply an Ethernet connector to the printer controller processor.
The Token Ring connection must be compatible with the IEEE
802.3 standard. The printer controller processor has a 4 MB/16
MB Token Ring interface (16 MB is preferred).
For an online configuration with an IBM host system, the
following cables must be available:
Bus and tag cables (bus in, bus out, tag in, tag out)
Terminators (if necessary, due to location on channel).
For your convenience, it is possible to order the bus and tag
cables for the printer through Xerox on a purchase-only basis.
