PURPOSE: To prevent processing performance from being deteriorated even when relay of plural protocols and relay in a data link layer take place simultaneously. CONSTITUTION: A MAC bridge interface 13 having a MAC bridge function and protocol interfaces 14-16 implementing routing in response to each specific protocol (TCP/IP, OSI, DECnet) are connected to a branch line LAN 30 by using transceivers 33-36. The connector is provided with an internal bus 11 being a data relay line of the interfaces 13-16 and a trunk line LAN interface 12 controlling data transfer between the internal bus 11 and the trunk line LAN 20. A microprocessor μP built in each of the interfaces 13-16 implements specific relay processing respectively. COPYRIGHT: (C)1992,JPO&Japio
