I am adding a minor brand name section named System Interface and Bus Section. This section provides interfaces and or buses to the 8192 and 12288 Motherboards as a solution to relieve bottlenecks within the Internal system itself. I first learned this concept while working at a Multi International Corporation that used systems that were heavy transaction dependent. On occasion, The system would receive intensive I/O Input Output processing and would cause system degradation so a way around this would be to strap a bus interface to the motherboard to relieve intensive I/O transactional processing by making the bus do some of the I/O processing. The bus uses frames on the 2nd layer of the OSI before forming a IP packet to sent to a Internal or External Network it also broadcast the mac address which brings about some security solutions being provided
These Bus and Interfaces provide possible solutions revolving around mac addresses and Frames before forming a IP Packet at the 3rd layer of the OSI Open System Interface.
