X3 Announces the Public Comment Period for X3/TR-16:199x,
SCSI-3 Generic Packetized Protocol (SCSI-GPP) Technical Report

Washington D.C., August 1995 -- Accredited Standards Committee X3,
Information Technology is announcing the public review of X3/TR-16:199x,
being developed in Technical Committee X3T10, Lower Level Interface.

The comment period extends from September 15, 1995 through November 14, 

The SCSI-3 GPP technical report permits a heterogeneous interconnection of
multiple Initiators and multiple Targets.  GPP provides a common mapping 
is used across all supported physical interfaces.  This permits a single
software interface in both Initiators and Targets independent of the 
interface.  GPP also provides control mechanisms to use multiple paths
between two devices during a single Task.  GPP permits the construction of
high availability systems where the loss of a port or link in the transport
layer need not cause Tasks to be aborted but rather they may be continued on
some other part of the service delivery subsystem.
