SyncLink® SDLC/SNA Adapters for Windows

SyncLink® SDLC Adapter for IBM CS\Windows

CS\Windows Directly Supports SyncLink Adapter Connections.

SyncLink adapters (PCI and PCI Express) support SDLC and X.25/QLLC connections between SNA host computers and IBM's Communications Server for Windows (CS\Windows) running on Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Windows 7 or Server 2003/2008. The PCI and PCI Express(PCIe) cards support data rates up to 10 Mbps.

The adapter serial interface (V.35, RS-232, RS-422/485, RS-530, RS-449, X.21) connects to data communications equipment such as synchronous modems, CSU/DSUs, satellite and radio modems. Multiport SyncLink adapters have independently configured serial data interfaces. Conversion cables are required for each port for V.35, RS-449, and X.21.

Multiple adapters can be installed, limited only by the number of available expansion slots.

Device manager diagnostics are provided for verifying the installation and correct operation of the adapter.

NOTE: If you require an SDLC/HDLC connection supporting a specialized remote device that is using the SDLC protocol for communications and you are not using CS\Windows to manage a SNA link, visit the MicroGate Serial API for Windows page. The "Related Products" tab has more information and links for more appropriate solutions.

Always feel free to contact MicroGate directly if you have any questions. We can help you match the right product to your connection needs.
