Network Management in a Service Environment
The South West Universities Regional Computer Centre (SWURCC) was established in 1975 to meet the needs of the ‘big batch’ users at University College Cardiff, the University of Wales Institute of Science and Technology and the Universities of Exeter, Bath and Bristol. All user work reaches SWURCC’s twin ICL 2980 system via X.25 links. Apart from the mixed scientific batch workload a user terminal service based on X.29 offers editing and job submission facilities. Our basic philosophy includes the provision of a consistent and reliable user interface, comprehensive documentation, high quality software, adoption of standards and a strong inclination towards manufacturer supplied and supported solutions rather than the ‘do it yourself’ approach.
