Abstract

A process is disclosed to automatically put a communication line in back-up speed and to establish a switched network back-up or SNBU connection on the line whenever transmission throughput rates drop to an unacceptable level. The process assumes that IBM LPDA (link problem determination aid) version 2 modems are in use.
