US SPRINT’s TELENET PICKS UP DUQUESNE IBM X25 PACKAGE

By CBR Staff Writer

It will be no comfort to IBM users who find that it is still less than easy or cheap to tie their 370-type mainframes to an X25 packet-switched network, but it appears that Duquesne Systems Inc of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has just the thing they’ve been demanding from IBM for years. STX is a software package designed to enable a user at a 3270 terminal logged onto an IBM mainframe to access packet-switched networks such as Telenet without the need for additional terminals or modems. The existence of the program only came to light because IBM’s favourite investment bank, Morgan Stanley, told Telenet about it. Duquesne acquired the product for marketing from Morgan Stanley, which developed it, and US Sprint Communications, parent of Telenet, has now obtained secondary rights to market STX to Telenet customers.
