1.2. System Overview

The Protogate Freeway is a data communication system which connects one or more serial-link channels (Wide-Area-Network, or WAN channels) of various types to one or more IP (Internet Protocol) networks. The Freeway acts as a gateway, providing WAN channel access to clients on the IP network.

The Protogate Freeway software is the comprehensive software suite which runs on all Freeways and completely controls them. The Freeway software is based on the FreeBSD operating system, and has been modified to control one or more Protogate Intelligent Communications Processor (ICP) boards. ICP boards are Protogate-manufactured boards which can be installed into a Freeway chassis, plugged into one or more serial-link channels, and configured to implement a data communications protocol.
