Binary Synchronous Communications (BSC)
What is Binary Synchronous Communications (BSC)?
Binary synchronous communications (BSC) is a communication protocol used to transmit data between computers and other electronic devices. It is a type of synchronous communication, which means that the sender and receiver are synchronized, or in sync, with each other during the transmission of data.
BSC uses a system of binary code, or a series of ones and zeros, to represent and transmit data. It is a reliable and efficient method of communication, as the sender and receiver can detect errors in the transmission of data and request a retransmission if necessary.
BSC was commonly used in the 1970s and 1980s to transmit data between computers and other electronic devices, such as printers and terminals. It has since been replaced by more advanced communication protocols, such as TCP/IP and Ethernet. However, it is still used in some legacy systems and is an important part of the history of computer networking.
