Difference between BISYNC and HDLC features

BISYNC stands for Binary Synchronous Communication. It is a half-duplex link protocol that replaces the SRT which stands for Synchronous transmit-receive.

HDLC stands for High-Level Data Link Control. It works on the data link layer of the OSI reference model. It supports both connection-oriented and connection less services.

Features of HDLC and BISYNC :
