The Systems Network Architecture (SNA) protocol has been in use in enterprise computing environments for nearly half of a century. Despite rumors of its demise, it is still used to transport a large percentage of mission-critical data around the world. So, if you are involved with mainframe networking, you should be aware of the basic concepts behind SNA.
In this session, the speaker will review the levels of SNA (subarea, APPN, HPR, and Enterprise Extender), as well as some general concepts related to VTAM and the SNA protocol. The current and future viability of SNA will also be discussed.-Sam Reynolds-IBM Corporation
