5.02) How about that SPARCstation 10?

The hardware on the SS10 supports 2 B channels (64K+64K) and 1 D
channel (16K) for a grand total 144K in marketing speak.  Typically you
might use both B channels for data, 1 channel for voice and 1 channel
for data, or 1 channel for data to 1 point and 1 channel for data to
another point.  In some parts of the world it's also popular to run
X.25 over the D channel.

Info from the SPARCstation 10 full announcement e-mail:

  - What Becomes Available When:
        o ISDN
            Chip on the motherboard                     (done)
            ISDN Drivers on Solaris 2.1 or greater      (done)
            Teleservices API                            Q1 CY93 Solaris 2.x
            Wide Area Networking software               Q1 CY93 Solaris 2.x
            The chip on the motherboard provides a BRI (basic rate interface) 
            ISDN connection that is integrated with workstation audio.  
            The drivers provide a low level interface to the hardware.  
            The Teleservices API enables application development for 
            workstation/telephony integration - providing functions like 
            call setup, transfer, hold, confer, etc.  The API is hardware 
            independent so that it will work with third party non-ISDN 
            telephony hardware and software.  The WAN software enables
            data communication - running IP over ISDN (in other words, 
            applications that run over ethernet will run over ISDN).  
            In the first release, Sun will support data communications 
            in the US (for the AT&T 5ESS switch), the UK, France, Germany 
            and Japan.  We will support voice services in the US (for 
            the AT&T 5ESS switch) only. 

This is also now available on the SPARCstation LX, and available as an
SBus card for any SBus workstation running Solaris 2.1 or later.

The current set of ISDN drivers for Solaris 2.1 or greater support
the AT&T 5ESS switch;  the next release is expected to support 
DMS-100 and national standard.

Get API_xtel* from sunsite.unc.edu:/pub/sun-info/white-papers for
more information on the API itself.  The XTel libraries, etc., are
not bundled with either Solaris 2.x or SunLink ISDN at this time.

SunLink ISDN description (quoted from Fall/Winter '93 SunExpress catalog):
The SunLink ISDN software included in both kits is based on the international
CCITT standard, and supports the following carrier-dependent implementations:
o  AT&T 5ESS (U.S.)
o  France Telecom VN2 (France)
o  DBT 1TR6 (Germany)
o  Britsh Telecom ISDN2 (U.K.)
o  NTT INS-Net 64 (Japan)

Sunlink ISDN software provides the following features:
o  Transparent IP connectivity, to allow you to run most existing IP
   applications, without modification, over ISDN
o  Graphics User Interface (GUI)-based configuration tool, for easy
   installation and administration
o  Security features, including callback, calling address, and PPP
   authentication password
o  Inactivity timer, for transparent open/close connections
o  Integrated network management with SunNetManager agent

5.03) How about that IBM Waverunner?

The IBM WaveRunner Digital Modem is an internal adapter for personal
computers (ISA, Microchannel or PCMCIA) which can communicate over an
ISDN line to either ISDN destinations or analog modems and FAX
machines.  WaveRunner requires ISDN Basic Rate service, an NT-1, and
either OS/2 2.1 or higher or Microsoft Windows 3.1 or higher.

WaveRunner uses AT-style commands, can be used with existing
communication application, supports V.120 encapsulation and performs
TCP/IP SLIP to Synchronous TCP/IP Translation.

The WaveRunner Hot Line at 1-919-254-ISDN is available for questions
Technical Support.  For a product brochure, call 1-800-426-3395 and
request document 13403.  To order, call 1-800-IBM-2YOU (1-800-426-2968)

    - National ISDN1

  Countries other than the United States and Canada may require testing
  or approval before Indy ISDN can be operated in that country.  Please
  check with your local provider or with SGI before using Indy ISDN in a
  country that is not listed above.

CAPABILITIES

  The Indy transfers circuit switched data on the B channels.  A point to
  point (PPP) daemon runs in the background on the Indy and uses ISDN to
  set up a IP link to the destination machine.

  Both B channels can be combined using a round-robin packet sending
  scheme to maximize throughput.  This is sometimes called "inverse
  multiplexing".  It is also similar to "bonding".

  PPP can also be configured to bring up one or both B channels as the
  bandwidth demand increases and bring down the channels when the demand
  decreases.  This is commonly known as "bandwith-on-demand".

  PPP utilizes a variety of compression, thus increasing data throughput
  to beyond 128Kb.

  PPP uses PAP to authenticate connections.

  For more specialized data transfer applications which do not want to
  use PPP, an ASI interface is available.

INTEROPERABILITY

  The Indy is interoperable with the following:
    - Other Indy systems
    - Network Express Interhub
    - Ascend

5.05) How about that HP?

The  HP  ISDN Link products for the HP Apollo Workstations (HP 9000
S700) and HP Unix Servers (HP 9000 S800) provides network connections
to public or private ISDN networks.

An HP 9000 connected to the ISDN network can communicate with any HP
or non-HP system which implements the TCP/IP protocol and which
encapsulates IP packets according to X.25 RFC877/1356 or with the PPP
protocol (J2460A/J2455A).  Also,  with J2461A/J2456A ordered, the HP
9000 equipped with an ISDN Link  can act as a non-dedicated IP router
for any system attached to the LAN.

The main features of the product are :
  * B Channel switching communication at 56/64 Kbps up to 384Kbps
    Up to three BRI per system are supported.
  * RFC 1356 compliant for X.25 encapsulation between ISDN and
    TCP/IP and PPP interoperability
  * X.25 packet switching over D channel
  * SNMP based network management

Major HP ISDN BRI Link Benefits:
  * Optimizes communication costs
  * Transparency for the end-user
  * Access to packet switching networks via D channel
  * Network security
  * Centralized management through HP OpenView Node Manager
  * Interoperability

5.06) How about that Intel RemoteExpress?

The Intel RemoteExpress product comes in two versions, a client version
and a bridge version.  With the client version, you can access a remote
LAN in a seamless fashion.  When you log in remotely, your network
connections look just the same as the network connections in the office;
there are no new interfaces to learn.  With the bridge version, your LAN
administrator can provide you access to remote clients and to other
bridges.  Bridge to bridge calls can connect two or more remote LANs.

RemoteExpress software supplies several levels of security to protect
unwanted access to the LAN.  Embedded on every RemoteExpress board is a
MAC address.  The software can use this address to determine whether a
system is allowed access to the LAN.

The client supports a single BRI ISDN line.  Both B channels can be used
for a single data connection of 128 kbps.  Automatic channel expansion
is supported.  A standard analog phone can be connected to the
RemoteExpress board so that one can either make or receive standard
voice calls.

The bridge product supports up to 3 BRI ISDN lines (6 B channels),
supporting anywhere from 1 to 6 simultaneous connections.  With all 6
channels allocated to a single data connection, bridges support a
maximum transmission rate of 384 kbps (bridge to bridge connection). The
RemoteExpress bridge is an SNMP agent allowing the bridge to be
controlled remotely.  The bridge also supports Spanning Tree Protocol
(802.1 IEEE).

Clients support TCP/IP, Novell NetWares IPX/ODI, NDIS 2.0 (e.g., Banyan
Vines), and several other network operating systems.  Bridges are
transparent and will pass any Ethernet packet.

The hardware and software included in the RemoteExpress LAN adapter
(client product) and RemoteExpress Bridge Pack are made to run in a DOS-
based PC.  The bridge pack includes the RemoteExpress board and an
EtherExpress(tm) LAN adapter (Intel's ethernet board).  Also included
with the bridge is a copy of Intel LANDesk(tm) Traffic Analyst.
