Simulation techniques were used to model applicable configurations and traffic distributions. Comparisons of IBM-36050 with hardwired communications controllers, upgraded configurations of IBM-36065 with hardwired communications controllers as well as IBM-36050 with programmable front-end processors are made. The latter is shown to be the most cost-effective approach for data communications systems. Author
