bisync

(BInary SYNChronous) A major category of synchronous communications protocols used in mainframe networks. Bisync communications require that both sending and receiving devices are synchronized before transmission of data is started. In the IBM world, bisync was superseded by SDLC. Contrast with asynchronous transmission. See SDLC.

Through this connectivity, the synchronous data link control (SDLC) and binary synchronous communication (BSC) protocols have been largely used, while other protocols--such as IP--have become participants over the last five years.
Each UCC can be configured to handle a variety of communications protocols, including 10/100 Ethernet, asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) at up to OC-3 speeds, serial and multi-PHY ATM, time division multiplexing (TDM), high-level data link control (HDLC), dual universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter (DUART) and binary synchronous communications protocol (BISYNC).
Quotron's network communicated with 100,000 custom terminals worldwide using an IBM-based interface know as 3270 binary synchronous, or BSC for short.
