There used to be various DEC and 3rd party boxes that acted as
DECnet-to-SNA gateways.

So far as the DEC ones are concerned, the low-end SNA/Gateway
variant ran (IIRC) on the old Microserver. One of the higher
end ones ran on a stripped down MicroVAX 3000 series with 
special channel-attach hardware.

I guess these days the average mainframe just does IP!
