ALSO CALLED: HIPPI, HPPI
DEFINITION: HIPPI (High-Performance Parallel Interface) is a standard point-to-point protocol for transmitting large amounts of data at up to billions of bits per second over relatively short distances, mainly on local area networks ( LAN s). The proponents of HIPPI believe that its use can make computers, interconnected storage devices, and other resources on a local area network function as though they were  …

HIGH PERFORMANCE PARALLEL INTERFACE DEFINITION (continued): …  all within a single supercomputer. (One firm has coined the term SuperLAN for this idea.) HIPPI is considered an ideal technology for the transfer of "big data," such as data warehouse updating, audio and video streams, and data backup within a range up to 10 kilometers.HIPPI uses a point-to-point link. The original HIPPI standard specifies data transfer at 800 Mbps with a 32-bit data bus or 1600 Mbps with a 64-bit data bus. Basic HIPPI uses 50 twisted pair copper wires with a maximum range limited to 25 meters. Data is sent in bursts of 1024 or 2048 bytes on a unidirectional channel. Full duplex …
