Datakit

Datakit

(networking)
A circuit-switched digital network, similar to X.25. Datakit supports host-to-host connections and EIA-232 connections for terminals, printers, and hosts.

Most of Bell Laboratories is trunked together on Datakit. On top of DK transport service, people run UUCP for electronic mail and dkcu for remote login.

ISN is the version of Datakit supported by AT&T Information Systems. Bell Laboratories in Holmdel, New Jersey, uses ISN for internal data communication.

Prior to his role at Cisco he spent 17 years at Bell Laboratories where he was responsible for product definition and development, including packet-switched data, private branch exchange (PBX) adjunct processors known as Datakit and ISN, fiber distributed data interface (FDDI), synchronous modems, speech recognition and voice response solutions.
Under the terms of the agreement, Pacific Access will resell Data General's line of AViiON servers running its PAC VCL (Virtual Circuit Lan) Datakit and Wide Area Virtual Enterprise (WAVE) solutions, as well as Data General's CLARiiON family of RAID technology based disk arrays.
By utilizing the PAC VCL Host interface, a hardware/software package that provides a high speed, fiber optic link from Datakit switches, and Data General's AViiON servers, telecommunications companies will have a mission-critical solution for virtually any local or wide area network need.
