The clumsily renamed Tymnet, McDonnell Douglas Network Systems Co has unveiled TymView, a software interface that enables Tymnet packet switching network equipment to be managed by NetView, IBM’s mainframe network management system, by providing an interface between the IBM NetView/PC product and Tymnet’s network management functions. NetView/PC is the MS-DOS software interface that enables non-SNA, Systems Network Architecture devices to communicate with NetView. The new product eliminates the need for IBM users who also had a Tymnet network to use separate tools to manage their two networks. As well as the TymView software, users will need a hard disk MS-DOS machine, IBM NetView/PC software; and a real-time Interface Co-processor Card. TymView translates event log information gathered by the Tymnet Monitoring Control System into a format understandable by NetView/PC and NetView and delivers it via an asynchronous interface. No prices.
