Network Virtual Terminal

A network virtual terminal is a communications concept describing a variety of data terminal equipment (DTE), with different data rates, protocols, codes and formats, accommodated in the same network. This is done as a result of network processing where each device’s data is converted into a network standard format, then converted into the format of the receiving device at the destination end.
