In the above configuration, there is one circuit carrying
X.25 LAPB frames from the DT-6061 or DT-6160 to a DT-4000
connected NE or a SAM connected NE.The X.25
Network Element may be anywhere on the available
networks (either BNS or IP). IP Hosts access the
virtual circuits on these Network Elements via a TCP
port number per virtual circuit on the DT-6061 or DT-6160. BNS
Hosts access the virtual circuit via the UMI.The same
is true of terminal and PC devices on either the BNS
or the IP network.
The DT-6061 and DT-6160 supports a multitude of applications. It has
the ability to support simultaneous operation of
different applications.There is no interaction between
applications except that they share the same hardware
and operating environment.
Smart Network Management
The DT-6061 or DT-6160 Platform and IP-PAD Application can be
managed via the DT-6061 or DT-6160 Console port, a terminal, PC
dial-up modem, or BNS asynchronous connection.
When new applications as well as application updates
become available, the DT-6061 and DT-6160 can be updated using an
industry standard FTP application.
As you migrate the corporate network from BNS
legacy devices towards IP-based devices, consider this
low cost solution that remains as a part of your
network even after the BNS network diminishes.
