Hi, some one of you have already implemented and runing this collector. My question is regarding de Bx.25 for this implementation and the standard x.25 interface. Acording the documentation this Bx.25 implementation is x.25 until layer 4, then could be supported for all system x.25 standard like solaris 9. Solaris 9 does not support bx.25 but for this case could be support using the standard x.25?
Do you have experience in it?
Your question brings back memories of X.25. X.3, X.28, X.29, X.75, etc..
For Telecommunication Switching nodes X.25 was used to extract and send information IT systems connected
to the X.25 Packet Data Network (PDN). Generally, the file retrieval application was specific to the vendor.
The low layers, i.e. Layer 1-3, used X.25. As an example, AXE10 used IOG 3 and 11 (Input Output Group)
to store files (e.g. CDR / Toll Tickets, Statistics, etc..). The files were retrieved using MTP / X.25.
Following are CDR Collector protocols that can be used with X.25: FTAM, CMISE/CMIP, XFER, MTP, AMATPS/BX.25, EADAS, etc..
At the time of writing (2019) we now have FTP(s) using TCP/IP. The last two decades has seen the overall
migration of X.25 WANs to IP Networks.
