Paper Abstract

This paper describes a multiplexer system which is compatible with the IBM 3274 controller and enables the 32 long runs of coaxial cable normally used to connect the controller to each peripheral to be replaced by a single core fibreoptic cable. This enables users to obtain drastic reductions in required duct space, gives total immunity to Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and a significantly enhanced level of security of data transmission.
