Open Network Computing (ONC) is the Sun architecture, with third party
alliances providing the missing pieces.  Sun's RPC is licensed by more
than 300 companies, including DEC, IBM, and Apple Computer.  It is a
lean, efficient  RPC that is particularly effective for installations
not requiring WAN support.  Transport Independent Remote Procedure
Calls (TI-RPC) were co-developed by Sun and AT&T.  TI-RPC runs
independent of the underlying network transport, allowing applications
to run unmodified over multiple transport protocols including NetWare,
PCNFS, AIX/6000, Solaris, UNIX/SVR4, AIX/ESA.  NetWise developed the
TI-RPC Application Toolkit source code generation technology.
