Other Benefits of CoNDIS WAN
In addition to flexibility and simplicity, the CoNDIS WAN model provides the following benefits:
CoNDIS WAN miniport drivers support multipacket send and receive operations.
When a CoNDIS miniport driver indicates a receive packet, a bound protocol can defer processing of the packet. When an NDIS WAN miniport driver indicates a receive packet, a bound protocol must copy the data immediately.
CoNDIS WAN supports multipoint calls. For more information about making multipoint calls, see Making a Call.
CoNDIS WAN supports quality of service (QoS). CoNDIS WAN drivers use the NET_BUFFER structure. For more information about CoNDIS QoS, see Client-Initiated Request to Change Call Parameters.
Only CoNDIS WAN will support future NDIS enhancements that apply to WAN drivers.
