Support ISDN on AIX for the IBM RISC System/6000

       Illustrated is a design for AIX* IBM RISC System/6000*
ISDN interface and includes the AIX software communication
subsystems.  The following AIX communication subsystems provide the
necessary support for the ISDN access.

      The AIX ISDN multiplexed device driver allows both user
applications and kernel users to have a common set of access methods
to control the ISDN device driver and the ISDN adapter.  This
interface also shields the user from requiring any knowledge of the
ISDN native adapter and its interface.  The device driver also
provides a unique transparent user-to-network signalling service to
kernel users.  For ISDN user process, an option is provided for user
application to control the user to network signalling service.

      The AIX ISDN device driver allows users to develop their own
applications to access the AIX communication subsystems over ISDN
network.

      The AIX ISDN native adapter handles communication at the
user-side of the ISDN user-to-network interface.  The ISDN adapter
provides protocol handling, maintenance functions, interface
functions, and connection functions to other equipment.  The adapter
also contains an interface which is fully compatible to CCITT
recommendation.

      The ISDN support on AIX/RISC/6000 is connected to the IDSN at S
reference point, which is intended to be the point in the ISDN
network at which any type of basic and primary access...
