BOC Improves Toll Data with Network Teleprocessing
System Diamond State Telephone Company, which along with Bell of Pennsylvania and several other Eastern BOCs, is an operating-company affiliate of Bell Atlantic, was the first BOC to install a self-contained network teleprocessing
system that previously had seen applications at independent (non-Bell) telcos.
The earliest information-processing network appeared in the form of a teleprocessing
Pixnet-XL provides such networking functions as multiple CPU and application access, full-duplex line transmission and line concentration without traditional teleprocessing
hardware, software and support personnel.
Running as an application under IBM's CICS teleprocessing
monitor, Omnilink provides multi-directional file transfer, allowing users to download data from mainframe to PC, upload from PC to mainframe or route data from one PC to another.
