If the switch’s data buffer is about to overflow when operating at full duplex, a Pause frame will be transmitted to the DFE-550FX. The ensuing idle time keeps the buffer from overflowing and prevents data from being lost. This enhancement can improve network throughput and prevent lost data, helping the network achieve optimal performance.
D-Link DFE-550FX Adapter IEEE802.1p Priority Tagging With the growing number of network applications, local area networks (LANs) must deliver data for a wide variety applications. Email, file transfers, database queries, voice over IP (VoIP), video- conferencing and multimedia must all be delivered to the end- user’s.
D-Link DFE-550FX Adapter Product Features Designed for high performance and versatility, the DFE-550FX Adapter provides the following features: Plug and Play installation. Complies with the IEEE802.3u/100Base-FX Ethernet standards. PCI Bus Master direct memory access for high throughput and low CPU utilization.
If your order includes the Boot ROM option, then install the Boot ROM Chip by plugging the chip into the Boot ROM Socket on the DFE-550FX card. The notched end of the Boot ROM Chip must be aligned with the notched end of the Boot ROM Socket.
If this happens, it is necessary to run the CMOS Setup utility, and manually assign a non- conflicting Interrupt Number to the DFE-550FX. Connecting the Network Cable Multimode (62.5/125 m or 50/125 m) fiber cabling with an IEEE recommended SC connector is required for the adapter.
Verification/Diagnostic Program This test program verifies configuration of the DFE-550FX as set by the installation procedure, and assists with isolation of any faults in operation. Verification and testing procedures are optional, and will only be useful in the unusual event that there is a fault, such as an interrupt number conflict among your computer expansion cards.
