As noted, the BD Interactiv Diabetes software can also be downloaded from the glucose meter using serial interface cables as well as USB interface cables. However, Interface cables have several advantages that a USB interface has over serial interfaces. First and foremost, USB supports a very high speed of data transmission. A USB 2.0 port can transmit data at a maximum speed of 480 Mbps per second which is more than four thousand times more rapid than the highest speed of data transmission in a serial port. Also, USB technology offers great convenience to the users of the product for a number of reasons. They can support daisy chains. This means that so many components can be added to the computer. Also, they are hot- pluggable, which essentially means that they can recognize components without the user having to reboot the computer. This makes the process much simpler and faster as well. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and BD USB interface cable errors before installing any driver updates.
