The 3Com 100 Secure Fiber NIC (3CR990B-FX-97) and its associated device driver allows the host computer system to work with fiber optic cabling technology. This particular technology supported by the device driver allows for the deployment of computer networks on extended distances while implementing resistance to packet sniffing. The sensitive data is secured by the device driver using DES/3DES encryption methods with an associated authentication process. As long as the corresponding device driver is present the 3Com 100 Secure Fiber NIC (3CR990B-FX-97) can be capably deployed in various computer systems and operating system platforms. The device driver ensures that the network connections that are implemented by the supported hardware component does not negatively impact the overall performance of the host computer system. This is achieve by an enhanced signaling method for better quality along with embedded security methods that are supported by approximately 75 security associations.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The deployment of this hardware component also allows for the implementation of an innovative cycle intensive task which emanates from the main processor of the host computer system. The 3Com 100 Secure Fiber NIC (3CR990B-FX-97) optimizes the response time not only of the underlying operating system environment but also of software applications that make use of the established computer networking environment. Since fiber optic cables are not susceptible to electrical spikes and interference like other cabling strategies, it remains as a viable solution for the reduction of line noise. Compared with other cabling technologies fiber optic cabling has also proven to be effective in maintaining the quality of the transmitted data including video and audio transmissions. The quality maintained on long distance network connections provided by the 3Com 100 Secure Fiber NIC (3CR990B-FX-97) and its device driver improves the network performance while reducing the administration time simultaneously. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and 3Com 100 Secure Fiber NIC (3CR990B-FX-97) errors before installing any driver updates.
