Overview
. .
. .
. .
The IBM 16/4 Token Ring PCI Special NIC is built on IBM's flagship technology and is designed to decrease
. .
. .
cost while increasing performance for customers in a Token Ring environment. The IBM16/4 Token Ring PCI
. .
. .
Special NIC has features for both ProLiant Servers and Deskpro PC's customers.

Dedicated Token Ring (DTR)
. .
. .
. .
Full bandwidth can be dedicated to a workstation by providing a direct connection between it and a Token Ring
. .
. .
switch that supports DTR. Full-duplex support allows the IBM 16/4 Token Ring PCI Special NIC to transmit and
. .
receive data simultaneously for rates up to 32 Mbps.

PCI Hot Plug Support
. .
. .
. .
This feature enables NICs to be replaced or added to a PCI Hot Plug compatible server without having to power
. .
off the server. This can reduce NIC maintenance time and allows for system maintenance during regular
. .
. .
business hours. Currently this functionally is only supported on Novell NetWare.

Wake On LAN
. .
. .
IBM 16/4 Token Ring PCI Special NIC provides two popular methods of Wake on LAN support: using a 3-pin
. .
. .
header or through the PCI bus. A system that supports Wake on LAN can remain available to a systems
. .
. .
administrator during its normal downtime. Once the machine is awakened, the systems administrator can
. .
remotely control, audit, debug or manage the machine.
. .
. .
. .
Manageability
. .
. .
Along with Wake on LAN, the IBM 16/4 Token Ring PCI Special NIC also provides standard SNMP MIB and DMI
. .
. .
2.0 support.

Plug and Play
. .
. .
The IBM 16/4 Token Ring PCI Special NIC features a robust plug and play capability for conflict-free auto
. .
. .
configuration. Compaq's SmartStart configuration utility includes diskette images for the IBM 16/4 Token Ring
. .
. .
PCI Special NIC so the NIC can be configured easily in server environments.
. .
. .
Driver Support
. .
. .
. .
IBM 16/4 Token Ring PCI Special NIC drivers are backward compatible with the Netelligent 16/4 TR PCI IBM
. .
. .
UTP/STP Controller and thus protects customer's current investments.
. .
. .
Customers' investments in the IBM 16/4 Token Ring PCI Special NIC will also be protected through future driver
. .
releases. When Microsoft, Novell, SCO, and others introduce new versions of operating systems, Compaq will
. .
. .
create drivers that work with these operating systems. IBM 16/4 Token Ring PCI Special NIC hardware
. .
. .
upgrades will not be needed.
. .
. .
Auto-negotiation
. .
. .
. .
Auto-sensing capabilities enable the IBM 16/4 Token Ring PCI Special NIC to automatically negotiate between 4
. .
and 16 Mbps to achieve the highest common speed on the network. As businesses evolve from 4 to 16 Mbps
. .
. .
Token Ring networks, there will be no need to buy new Token Ring NICs.
