It replaced the synchronous transmit-receive STR protocol used with second generation computers. The intent was that common link management rules could be used with three different character encodings for messages. At one time Bisync was the most widely used communications protocol  and is protoclls in limited use in Bisync differs from protocols that succeeded it in the complexity of message framing.
Later protocols use a single framing scheme for all messages sent by the protocol. Bisync has five different framing formats. All frame formats begin with at least two SYN bytes.
The binary form of the SYN byte has the property that no rotation of the byte is equal to the original. This allows the receiver to find the beginning of a frame by searching the received bit stream for the SYN pattern.
Binary Synchronous Communications
When this is found, tentative byte synchronization has protocops achieved. If the next character is also a SYN, character synchronization has been achieved. The receiver then searches for a character that can start a frame. Characters outside of this set are described as “leading graphics”. They are sometimes used to identify the sender of a frame. Long messages have SYN bytes inserted approximately every second to maintain synchronization.
These are ignored by the receiver. A data frame may contain an intermediate protlcols sum preceded by an ITB character. This ability to include intermediate check sums in a long data frame allows a considerable improvement of the error detection probability. This pad is either all ‘1’ bits or alternating ‘0’ and ‘1’ bits.
The next transmission begins with a pad character which can be either of the above or a SYN. An optional heading containing control information can precede data in a frame. The content of the heading is not defined by the protocol but is defined for each specific device. Normal data frames do not allow certain characters to appear in the data.

These are the block ending characters: Transparent data framing ane an unrestricted alphabet of 64, or characters. This technique became known as character stuffingby analogy with bit stuffing.
The link control protocol is similar to STR. The designers attempted to protect against simple transmission errors.
The protocol can recover from a corrupted data frame, a lost data frame, and a lost acknowledgment. Error recovery is by retransmission of the corrupted frame. Since Bisync data packets are not serial-numbered, it’s considered possible for a data blsync to go missing without the receiver realizing it.
The Hamming distance between the two messages is only two bits. The protocol is half-duplex 2-wire. In this environment, packets or frames of transmission are strictly unidirectional, necessitating ‘turn-around’ for even the simplest purposes, such as acknowledgments.
Some datasets support full-duplex operation, and full-duplex 4-wire hd,c be used in many circumstances to improve performance by eliminating the turn-around time, at the added expense of 4-wire installation and support.
In typical full-duplex, data packets are transmitted along one wire pair while the acknowledgements are returned along the other. Much Bisync traffic is point-to-point. Point-to-point lines can optionally use contention to determine bsiync master station. In this case portocols device can transmit ENQ to bid for bsiync. In some cases connection of a terminal to multiple hosts is possible via the dial telephone network. Multi-drop is part of the initial Bisync protocol. A master station, normally a computer, can sequentially poll terminals which are attached via analog bridges to the same communication line.
This is accomplished by sending a message consisting only of an ENQ character addressed to each device in turn. The selected station then transmits a message to the master or reply with EOT to indicate that it has no data to transmit.
The RJE terminals support a limited number of data formats: A programmer can easily emulate an RJE terminal or other device.

IBM offered assembler language macros to provide programming support. The academic computing network Bitnettogether with connecting networks in other geographic areas, used Bisync to connect computer systems at its peak.
In a mid BSC was replaced to the X.
Some important systems use Bisync data framing with a different link control protocol. Houston Automated Spooling Program HASP uses Bisync half-duplex hardware in conjunction with its own link control protocol to provide full-duplex multi-datastream communication between a small computer and a mainframe running HASP. In Bisync terms, this is conversational mode. Bisync began to be displaced in the s by Protoxols Network Architecture SNA which allows construction of a network with multiple hosts and multiple programs using telecommunications.
