Applications connect to Icon-5066 using the STANAG 5066 SIS (Subnet Interface Service) protocol. Each application uses one of 16 SAP IDs (Service Access Point Identifier). The diagram below shows the Isode products that operate over the SIS Protocol, using the recommended SAP ID for each application. These applications will communicate with peer applications connected to remote STANAG 5066 servers.
