This guide to internetworking networks is based on IBM's SNA (System Network Architecture) protocol. Over 70,000 SNA networks carry 75% of the worldwide corporate data communications. In an era of open systems and interoperability, it is crucial for this most dominant of proprietary protocols - SNA - to be able to interoperate with protocols in non-SNA environments, especially TCP/IP, IPX, NetBIOS, and DECnet. Topics covered include SNA and TCP/IP compared, how different network architectures relate to SNA, migration profiles from SNA to multiprotocol environments, and standards and politics.
