Summary
  • Communications Week's 1994 survey of network managers reveals that IBM's SNA protocol continues losing ground to TCP/​IP and Novell Inc's IPX, but the surprise is in how rapidly this is happening. Only 13% of respondents say they intend to use SNA/​Synchronous Data Link Control, which is down from 21% in 1993, and only 3% of respondents expect SNA/​SDLC to predominate on their wide area networks in three years. By contrast, 62% expect to be using TCP/​IP, and 17% specify IPX. On LANs, TCP/​IP and IPX have almost equal shares. Forty-three percent of respondents say they expect to standardize on TCP/​IP, and 40% name IPX. SNA/​SDLC is not usually categorized as a LAN protocol, but 1% of respondents say they expect it to predominate on their LANs in three years.
