Transport Service (XTI) V2

Category: Interworking [GV]

This Product Standard defines a single programming interface to transport services provided by a variety of protocol stacks including OSI, TCP/IP, UDP-IP and NetBIOS. It facilitates the writing of distributed applications, independent of network technology. It is an enhancement to the Transport Service (XTI) Product Standard. The enhancements include (1) changes to remove hardware data-length dependencies and restrictions, (2) improvements to reflect the work of the IEEE P1003.1g project.
