Binary Synchronous Communication
  • A character-oriented, data-link-layer protocol. Note: The bi-sync protocol is being phased out of most computer communication networks in favor of bit-oriented protocols such as SDLC, HDLC, and ADCCP. See also Advanced Data Communications Control Procedure, high-level data link control, synchronous data link control.
