AnyNet is a family of access node and gateway products that help you integrate IBM SNA, TCP/IP, IPX, and NetBIOS networks with products on IBM AIX/6000, MVX/ESA, OS/2, OS/400, and the Microsoft Windows platform. The AnyNet family is based on MPTN (Multiprotocol Transport Networking) architecture, an X/Open standard. AnyNet basically makes it easier to build multiprotocol networks in IBM environments and eliminates the need to build parallel networks that provide interconnections between computing devices. If you are transitioning from an SNA (Systems Network Architecture) network to a TCP/IP network, AnyNet can help reduce conversion costs by allowing SNA applications to be accessed via the TCP/IP network.
