About Gcom

Binary DataGcom® has been designing and developing legacy protocol data communications solutions since 1979.

Gcom's founder and president has a strong technical background dating back to the University of Illinois ILLIAC IV project in the 1960s and 1970s. He is the original author of many of Gcom's line of product offerings, including X.25, QLLC, and HDLC. His first version of X.25, written in 1977, was the second implementation of X.25 to be used in the United States. He is also the author of the Linux STREAMS subsystem.

Gcom's SNA specialist was a member of the original SNA development team at IBM in the 1970s.

Gcom's original offering to the market was in the form of source code licenses for data communications protocol implementations. Beginning in 1996, Gcom made the transition from a supplier of source code to a supplier of bundled data communications hardware and software products.

Gcom remains committed to its original goal of developing affordable, high-performance communications software, and helping customers take advantage of its benefits. Gcom's customer base now includes OEMs, systems integrators, data communications equipment manufacturers, network providers, government contractors, and large end users around the world. Our more well-known customers include VISA International, Mastercard, Motorola, the Federal Aviation Administration, and the National Weather Service.
