There is rush among companies to implement the Frame Relay fast packet-switching standard, and a San Jose, California company, LIR Corp, may have an answer to enable late-comers to the party to catch up. It has developed what it describes as a portable software package designed to enable computer and communications manufacturers to implement the Frame Relay protocol. LIR’s program is written in C and the package includes source code for easy customisation. The modular suite includes congestion control, network management, handling of permanent virtual circuits and has provisions to handle switched virtual circuits in the future. The company assures that it is compliant with ANSI, CCITT and industry Frame Relay standards and has implemented it on a standard AT bus adaptor for demonstration. Available this month the program is from $25,000 for a royalty-bearing licence.
