Peripheral and network recommendations for 3Shape systems

Network speed requirements:

The speed of the Ethernet is important as it will impact the user experience.
The faster the network, the smoother the user experience.
The faster the connection the faster sending and receiving of an order.
A typical TRIOS® order of 30Mb will take approx. 30 seconds to transmit on a 10Mbit/s line.
