defined in the Windows DDK.

In some cases, the call manager driver is included in the operating system. Consequently, the vendor needs to provide only an NDIS 5.0 connection-oriented miniport driver. For connection-oriented media such as ISDN or X.25, the vendor must provide a call manager driver with the hardware, because the call manager is not included in the operating system. Call manager support can be integrated in the connection-oriented miniport driver or implemented as a separate NDIS 5.0 call manager driver. Documentation for both integrated and separated call managers is included in the Windows DDK.

An NDIS 5.0 miniport driver is required for network adapters that connect to the PC using external buses such as USB. This driver exposes its media type to NDIS 5.0 at its upper edge, and it interfaces with the appropriate bus driver at its lower edge.
