Binary Synchronous and Asynchronous Communications (Bisync/Async)

Introduction

Binary Synchronous Communications (Bisync) IP (BIP) is a cost-effective solution that addresses the requirements of customers who want to connect their existing Bisync ATM cash machines to their Tandem (Compaq Himalaya) mainframe host running BASE24 application software from ACI Worldwide. BIP is a featurette in the Cisco IOS Software that enables customers to attach Bisync ATM cash machines to a serial interface on a Cisco router and then route the data over TCP/IP to the LAN-attached Tandem (Compaq Himalaya) mainframe host. BIP enables enterprises to transport Bisync traffic over the same network that supports their SNA and multiprotocol traffic, eliminating the need for separate Bisync WAN facilities. BIP is supported on Cisco 1700, 2500, 2600, 3600, 4000, 4500, 4700 and 7200 Series routers.
