Second, while is possible to design asynchronous protocols with safety properties similar to those of the synchronous protocols, the timeliness properties satisfied by asynchronous protocols are much weaker; the delays with which processes learn of new updates, joins, and failures are bounded only when certain stability conditions hold.
NS/Router end users can configure remote host connections in a matter of minutes from the NS/Router Configurator by selecting the Renex Asynchronous Protocol link type.
The Renex Asynchronous Protocol driver will be included in NetSoft's flagship 3270 product, DynaComm/Elite, during the first quarter of 1996.
In this section, we will review the operations of two asynchronous protocols, X-MAC and RIX-MAC, that use short preambles and receiver-initiated transmission.
Atmel's CryptoMemory is the industry's first low cost, high security family of memory chips with on-chip hardware data encryption, including both synchronous and asynchronous protocols.

Atmel(R) Corporation (Nasdaq:ATML) announced today the availability of the industry's first low cost, high security memory devices with data encryption including both synchronous and asynchronous protocols.
BellSouth sales teams will work with Hypercom to develop total networking solutions for customers, particularly where mainframe or legacy data such as SNA, BSC and asynchronous protocols co-exist with LAN or client/server systems.
FRAD then performs protocol conversions that must take place before legacy data can traverse frame-relay based wide area networks, including SNA/SDLC, APPN/SDLC, BSC and asynchronous protocols.
