One example of what TPS® has done in this
area is TPS®/PCA. PCA is a protocol conversion solution that
can be modified to solve specific conversion requirements. The
focus of PCA is to take SNA traffic and convert it to TCP/IP
and vice-versa. PCA has been modified to handle various types
of financial transactions by a number of financial-based firms.
It has been used in a number of instances to drive an SNA ATM
network and feed the ATM traffic into an IP network.
TPS®/NFM and TPS®/NTM are other products that have the
ability to convert data from one protocol to another. NFM allows
users to transfer files and other resources using various protocols
simultaneously. NTM utilizes the same protocol conversion methodology
in moving real-time messages and transactions from application
to application. This ability to work with multiple protocols
concurrently is a great asset if you are migrating from one protocol
to another or if you have to interface with vendors, customers,
or business partners that have differing protocols from yours.
In addition, both NFM and NTM, as well as PCA, have data reformatting
capabilities and run on multiple platforms and OSs.
These are a few examples of the products TPS® currently
has to offer. If there is not a product that meets your specific
needs, let’s talk. With our experience, the odds are extremely
good that TPS® can help you.
