Will the ION 8800 device support higher Ethernet speed than 10Base-T?

All Ethernet capable ION meters, of which the ION 8600 is one, support only 10Base-T half-duplex Ethernet. There are no plans to increase the speed capability of the network interface card on any ION devices at this time (Feb 15, 2006). According to the hardware R&D team, making our meters full duplex won't increase performance as there are only so many CPU cycles available to process the ethernet data anyway.
