System Communication Architecture

The System Communication Architecture (given as Systems Communication Architecture in some documents) is DEC's data networking architecture for VAXcluster systems; it defines the major constituent protocols, what functions each one performs, and how they interact. It allows the basic data-communication mechanism of a VAXcluster, the Computer Interconnect, to be shared between the numerous functions needed to operate the VAXcluster.
