Abstract

Existing communications network performances can be increased by allowing baud rate to be a network-negotiable factor. Disclosed is a protocol which provides for the exchange of Data Communications Equipment (DCE) alternate baud rate capabilities. The network can then select the optimum baud rate for that session, given the network load at that time.
