Enhanced I/O (EIO) configuration (HP Color LaserJet 3700 series printer only)
This printer comes equipped with one enhanced input/output (EIO) slot. The EIO slot holds compatible external devices, such as the HP Jetdirect print server network cards or other devices. Plugging an EIO network card into the slot increases the number of network interfaces available to the printer.
EIO network cards can maximize printer performance when you are printing from a network. In addition, they provide the ability to place the printer anywhere on a network. This eliminates the need to attach the printer directly to a server or a to workstation, and allows you to place the printer closer to the network users.
