Review of Standards. To keep abreast of progress in industry, Joint Australian/ New Zealand Standards are subject to periodic review and are kept up to date by the issue of amendments or new editions as necessary. It is important therefore that Standards users ensure that they are in possession of the latest edition, and any amendments thereto. Full details of all Joint Standards and related publications will be found in the Standards Australia and Standards New Zealand Catalogue of Publications; this information is supplemented each month by the magazines ‘The Australian Standard’ and ‘Standards New Zealand’, which subscribing members receive, and which give details of new publications, new editions and amendments, and of withdrawn Standards. Suggestions for improvements to Joint Standards, addressed to the head office of either Standards Australia or Standards New Zealand, are welcomed. Notification of any inaccuracy or ambiguity found in a Joint Australian/New Zealand Standard should be made without delay in order that the matter may be investigated and appropriate action taken.

This Standard is issued as a Joint Standard under the terms of the Active Cooperation Agreement between Standards Australia and Standards New Zealand. The objective of this Standard is to provide users of the OSI 7-layer model with a method by which a network-layer interworking unit uses the X.25 packet layer protocol to support the OSI connection-mode network services.

This Standard is one of a series of Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) Standards which are currently under development. Since OSI Standards are developmental, there may be some minor difficulties encountered in their implementation. For this reason, Standards Australia will be providing, through the OSI Help Desk, a service to coordinate and disseminate information concerning difficulties which are identified in using this Standard. Users of this Standard are advised by Standards Australia and Standards New Zealand, under arrangements made with ISO and IEC, as well as certain other Standards organizations, that the number of this Standard is not reproduced on each page; its identity is shown only on the cover and title pages. For the purpose of this Standard, the source text should be modified as follows: (a) Terminology The words ‘this Australian/New Zealand Standard’ should replace the words ‘this International Standard’ wherever they appear. (b) Decimal marker Substitute a full point for a comma where it appears as a decimal marker. (c) References The references to international Standards should be replaced by references, where appropriate, to the following Australian or Joint Australian/New Zealand Standards: Reference to International Standard or other publication ISO 7498 Australian or Joint Australian/New Zealand Standard AS 2777

Scope

This International Standard specifies the method by which a Network-layer interworking unit (IWU) uses the X.25 packet layer protocol specified in ISO/IEC 8208 to support the OSI connection-mode Network service. The specification is expressed in terms of a mapping between the Network internal layer service defined in ISO/IEC 10028 and the Virtual Call (VC) and Permanent Virtual Circuit (PVC) services of the X.25 packet layer protocol. An IWU to which this International Standard applies interconnects, for any individual Network connection, two real subnetworks, at least one of which is accessed using the X.25 packet layer protocol. When both subnetworks are accessed using the X.25 packet layer protocol, the specification applies independently to the IWU’s operation on each subnetwork. In addition, this International Standard uses ISO/IEC 10028’s definition of the relaying functions of an intermediate system to extend its application beyond a single subnetwork point of attachment, to specify the requirements to be met by an IWU as a whole in supporting the OSI connection-mode Network service. This International Standard covers operation of the X.25 packet layer protocol that is compatible with the 1984 and later versions of CCITT Recommendation X.25, and that is compatible with the 1980 version of X.25 when the Permanent Virtual Circuit service is used; compatibility with the 1980 version of X.25 for Virtual Calls is outside the scope of this International Standard. To enable use of the PVC service, this International Standard defines a set of subnetwork dependent convergence protocol (SND CP) procedures. These allow a given PVC to support one Network connection at a time, but to support different Network connections, with the same or different values for address and quality of service parameters, etc, at different times. The procedures also allow for the possibility of using a PVC in support of other protocols, but not simultaneously with these procedures (apart from transient collision cases, which do not fail unnecessarily). To evaluate conformance of a particular implementation, it is necessary to have a statement of which capabilities and options have been implemented. Such a statement is called a Protocol Implementation Conformance Statement (PICS), as defined in ISO/IEC 9646-1. This International Standard provides the PICS proforma in compliance with the relevant requirements, and in accordance with the relevant guidance, given in ISO/IEC 9646-2. This International Standard does not specify any requirements relating to the exchange of routing information or layer-management information between an IWU and other systems.
