    The use of X.25 for medium-speed applications (<56 kb/s) in personal computer local area networks (LANs) is considered, focusing on a number of popular LAN-based applications that are appropriately matched for X.25 services. For architectural reasons, they are broadly classified into two categories: PC-to-host access (terminal emulation), as in token ring, to synchronous data link control (SDLC) h... View full abstract»

    A comparison is made of the open shortest path first (OSPF) and intermediate system-to-intermediate system (IS-IS) routing protocols in terms of their ability to route internet protocol (IP) traffic. Common characteristics of the two protocols are briefly indicated. The differences between the two are explored with respect to packet encoding, area partitions, level 2 partitions, injection of level... View full abstract»

    A description is given of the model for the switched multimegabit data service (SMDS) simple network management protocol (SNMP) agent to be deployed in the networks of the Bell operating companies, their successors, or regional affiliates to provide customer network management (CNM) services and the CNM information that customers of SMDS may access. Examples of how this information, acquired throu... View full abstract»
