25 or IBM SDLC, 3270 bisync or 2780, 3780 or Hasp bisync protocols.
Headquartered in Memphis, Tenessee, the firm provides on-line, transaction-oriented links to users of IBM 3270 bisync and SDLC protocols as well as the Burroughs Poll/Select communications discipline.
The WS-150 uses all the word and information-processing software available on the other models and supports asynchronous TTY, bisync
2780/3780 and 3270 communications.
NCR's Communications Network Architecture supports NCR or IBM hosts with SNA, bisync or start/stop terminals.
CAM communicates with non-IBM machines in addition to SNA and pre-SNA IBM hosts, and supports most of the popular start/stop, bisync and SNA-type terminals.
The 3703 may be configured with up to 12 ports, any of which is capable of interconnecting a different kinds of ASCII and/or bisync device, with all devices communicating with the host over a single SDLC link.
As the smaller members of the Micro7400 family, the 16-channel model appears to the host computer as an IBM 3274 Model 61C cluster controller communicating in either bisync or SDLC protocol.
multi-protocol (HDLC, Bisync
, Async, PPP) streams at speeds up to 52
Data transmission by satellite, while fine for some companies, has been a disappointment for others--especially for those using delay-sensitive protocols such as IBM's 3270 Bisync protocol.
But in the case of IBM's 3270 Bisync, a positive-acknowledgement protocol, these delays can be overwhelming to the point of rendering multidrop lines useless.
Users can access Sterling Information Broker via traditional communication protocols such as Async, Bisync
and SNA or through new Internet-based protocols including TCP/IP, FTP, SMTP, X.
