The device also had to support any combination of bisync and SNA device types," he recalls.
Interfaces fall into several classes: local interfaces, providing four or eight independent channels; local multiplexers, supporting as many as 128 devices over two twisted pairs; gateways, for accessing IBM SNA or Bisync networks as well as X.
This is accomplished using intelligent line-monitoring units (LMUs) that monitor 3270 SDLC and bisync protocol-related activity and send the information to the 90/60 data base.
In Figure 1, one can see the normal data line monitor display of Bisync data.

WAN-attached branches, in particular, require a cost-effective solution for access to the new frame relay, leased line, or ATM networks, yet often still are required to support legacy devices such as automated teller machines, bisync printers, and ASCII terminals.
NCP is responsible for handling the line protocols, which could be 3270 bisync in addition to Synchronous Data-Link Control (SDLC), to the cluster controlers and other FEPs.
