I2O(Intelligent I/O) A standard for offloading input and output to an auxiliary processor. The auxiliary processor (I/O processor) manages the data transfer while the CPU does something else. Although I2O is being implemented in small systems, it embodies the principle behind mainframe channels, which can have several hundred data transfers occurring simultaneously.

In parallel, we also investigate the impacts of large-scale (log-normal shadowing fading, 3D antenna gain, distance path-loss, and I2O
propagation loss) and small-scale fading, as well as the spatial correlation at the transmit side considering the cell-edge UTs and cell-center UTs.
Although civilian casualties would be unavoidable from widespread I2O
attacks, they would not be the object.
communication is said to allow the inputs of one EtherStax I/O device to automatically update the outputs of another over the Ethernet and a change of state detection can be transmitted in less than 5ms between EtherStax I/O blocks.
