These line sets provide for the attachment of up
to four data sets. The following data sets, or
equi valent, can be attached via the Synchronous

Synchronous Clock Feature. This feature is sup­
plementary to the Synchronous Line Set and provides
for the attachment or up to four data sets (or IBM
Line Adapters), where clocking for bit synchroni­
zation is not provided by the data set (or line
adapter). This feature requires the installation of
synchronous line speeds (see "Synchronous Line Speed Option"), and accommodates the following
data sets (modems) or their equivalent:
IBM 3977 Modem (WTC only)
IBM 3976 Model 3 (WTC only) GPO Datel 1 Model 5 (WTC only)
NTT DT1203 (WTC only) PTT D1200S (WTC only) PTT GH2002 (WTC only--Model has an optional
clock. Either the modem clock or the machine
clock feature may be used, but not both; nor
can both be intrrmixed on the same communi­
cations facility.)
Western Electric Data Set 202C1 Western Electric Data Set 202D1 Table III summarizes the number of synchronous
lines that can. be attached per 2703 by Synchronous Base.
Synchronous Line Speed Option These options provide the pulses to drive the Synch­ ronous Clock feature, which is required whenever
the data set or line adapter does not provide timing
or clocking pulses needed for external bit sampling.
The Synchronous Line Speed Option is available for
operation of the SF at 600, 1200, 2000, or 2400 bits
per second for World Trade Corporation applications
and at 1200 bps for domestic use. Only one speed
can be specified per Synchronous Line Set, and this
speed is preset. If the Synchronous Clock feature is
specified for one line, the other station(s) on the net­
work serviced by this line must have the Synchronous Clock feature installed, and all stations must have
the same bit rate.
Data Set (Modem) Features
A variety of transmission facilities can be attached
to the BSC -adapted 2703, depending on the type
facility used, transmission configuration, trans-
mission speed employed, country of use, and so
forth. Refer to Figure 13 for details.

The Synchronous Features in a 2703 may be opera­
tionally used as the BSC portion of a master station,
or the SF may be used in a BSC-equipped multi­
point network as a tributary (remote) station. The
basic synchronous-equipped 2703 is designed to
operate as a master station on a point-to-point
basis; however, with the installation of the Station­ Selection feature, a synchronous-equipped 2703 can
be used as the tributary station--thus permitting a
number of low-traffic-volume stations to be effec­
tively combined to fully utilize the throughput capa­
bility of a multipoint line.
A multipoint network could typically be configured
as shown in Figure 14.
The Station-Selection feature causes the elimina­
tion of interference that would otherwise be caused
by interstation transmission on the line. Thus, the CPU (with a 2703 containing Station-Selection­ adapted SF) is interrupted only when the SF's selec­
tion or polling address is received and transferred
to main storage, at which point main storage can be
interrogated for proper programmed action.
The Station-Selection feature is required when the SF is attached to a multipoint network and the station
is operating as a remote (tributary) station and all
transmission operations are directed to or from the
central (master) station. BSC-adapted stations can operate on the same
multipoint line. provided they:
1. All use the same transmission code;
2. All utilize the same checking features;
3. All are able to handle, if not employ, the same
optional features and special operations re­
specting their compatibility supplements: ,1. All operate at the same line speed.
The Station-Selection feature implements two
additional commands: Address Prepare (Adprep),
and Search.
