Security Keylock

The 9404 has a security keylock to prevent unauthorized use of the system and unauthorized accessibility to data within the system.

Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) Interface

An interface is provided to attach a vendor-supplied UPS which provides the ability to tolerate a large range of power quality problems. Significant reduction in power requirements on the 9404 makes a UPS more cost effective.

Reliability, Availability and Serviceability (RAS)

Problem determination is accomplished through devices and features that, wherever possible, detect, isolate and report their own errors. For cases when automatic recovery or isolation is not possible, a process known as Problem Analysis and Resolution (PAR) is provided which includes extended diagnostics for isolating the failure to a part or list of parts. The failing unit may then be ordered and replaced on-site. The Analyze Problem command will allow the customer to define perceived problems not reported by the system.

When the failure has been analyzed and isolated to a single part or parts, the communications facilities of the electronic customer support can enable a direct link to IBM Service. This results in a service representative being dispatched with the appropriate part to resolve the problem.

Using the built-in data compression capability, the 3590 has a potential maximum throughput of 20 MB per second. Actual throughput is a function of end-to-end system capabilities including processor, DASD, bus, IOP, OS/400 blocking and data compaction.

The 3590 uses new read/write and media technology for vastly increased capacity and reliability. The new cartridge has an uncompacted data capacity of 10 GB, or typically over 30 GB assuming a 3:1 compaction ratio. The capacity of an individual drive has further been increased by the addition of the Automatic Cartridge Facility (ACF), which allows an operator to mount ten cartridges at a time via a magazine. Thus an individual drive can provide storage for 100 to 300 GB of data. The 3590 cannot read or write 3490E tape cartridges.

The 3590 is available in two models. The Model B11 is rack mounted and includes a 10-cartridge Automatic Cartridge Facility (ACF) that can be used in random access mode as a mini-library. The Model B1A does not include the ACF and is designed to fit into the 3494 Tape Library Dataserver, increasing total library capacity to over 90 terabytes.

The 3590 attaches to all AS/400 DXX and later models, except the X02 and P03 models, using AS/400 Feature #6501 (Magnetic Media Subsystem Controller). Each feature #6501 can support up to two tape drives. The 3490 has two SCSI ports and can be shared between two systems.

Backup Recovery and Media Services/400 (BRMS/400) is recommended to support automation in tape handling, media management, fast search, and automatic migration of data between tape and DASD based on user defined policies. For developing unique applications, OS/400 provides a command interface.

7208 8-mm External Tape Drives

The 7208 is an 8-mm helical scan, medium performance, high capacity, streaming tape drive with models supporting media capacity of up to 7.0GB per cartridge. The Model 2 (Withdrawn from marketing) provides 2.3GB capacity. When hardware data compression (HDC) on the IOP is enabled, it typically provides 1.5 times improvement in capacity and transfer rate. The 7208 Model 12 provides 5GB capacity and the Model 222 provides 7GB. Both Models 12 and 222 support an implementation of IBM's Improved Data Recording Capability (IDRC) that typically provides a two times improvement in capacity and transfer rate.

Both 7208 models are stand-alone, table-top devices, and can be used for save/restore, alternate IPL, program interchange and 8mm cartridge tape interchange with other AS/400 systems. Kits for rack-mounting are available via RPQ 841997 for the Model 2 and RPQ 841998 for the Model 12. The 7208 attaches to the AS/400 via Removable Media Device Attachment Feature (#2621). This feature supports up to two tape devices.

Full interchange of data is supported between Models 002, 012 and 222, the 9427 and the AS/400 Advanced Series internal 7GB 8mm tape units, using the proper tape density and 7208-002/012/222 tape media. All models use the same media and cleaning cartridges. The Models 002, 012 and 222 do NOT support data interchange with the 7208 Model 1 or Model 11 attached to RS/6000 systems.

The Model 2 has an instantaneous data transfer rate of 245KBps second. When HDC is enabled the unattended save rate would typically be 1GB/Hr with 3.5GB of data stored per cartridge. The Model 12 has an instantaneous data transfer rate of 500KBps. When IDRC is enabled the unattended save rate would typically be 3GB/Hr with 10GB of data stored per cartridge. The Model 222 has a sustained data transfer rate of 500KBps. Using IDRC, maximum effective data transfer rate is up to 1MBps, and capacity is up to 14GB of data stored per cartridge, depending on the type of data.

Attaches to all AS/400 Advanced Series models. Model 222 requires the support of OS/400 Version 3 Release 1. Maximums: See System Unit Summary table.

9348 Model 2 Magnetic Tape Unit

The 9348 Model 2 is a free standing table top, streaming 1/2-inch reel-to-reel tape drive. It is provided for save/restore, program distribution and 1/2-inch reel tape interchange. The 9348 Model 2 can be used for alternate IPL when attached to 9404 Models D25, E10, E20, E25, F10, F20, and F25.

The 9348 is a dual density 1,600/6250 bpi drive with an instantaneous data rate of 200KB per second at 1,600 bpi and 781KB per second at 6,250 bpi.

9427 8mm Tape Cartridge Library Models 210 and 211

The 9427 Models 210 and 211 are automated tape libraries supported on all AS/400 D, E and F models (except Models D02 and E02), and on all AS/400 Advanced Series models. The 9427-210 is a stand-alone unit, and the 9427-211 is a rack-mounted unit that requires 14 EIA units and 1/2 of the horizontal rack space. Two Model 211 units can be placed in a rack, side-by-side. Each 9427 supports one or two 7GB 8mm tape drives. Up to twenty tape cartridges are supported. Optional features to support dual host channels, tape mirroring for fault tolerance, off-line host independent functions (tape copy and compare), and a label printer port will be available. Device performance is 1.5MB/sec. The 9427 is available in black or white.

Tape cartridge capacity is 7GB and sustained data transfer rate is 500KBps. Using Improved Data Recording Capability (IDRC), maximum tape cartridge capacity is up to 14GB, and effective data transfer rate is up to 1MBps, depending on the type of data. Total 9427 capacity is up to 280GB.

The 9427 can be used for save/restore, alternate IPL (except on Models D04, D06, D10 and D20), program distribution, migration, data interchange, automatic migration of data between DASD and tape, and mass storage for data archive. Full interchange of data is supported with the 7208-002, 7208-012 and 7208-232 tape drives, and the AS/400 Advanced Series internal 7GB 8mm tape units, using the proper tape density and 7208-002/012 tape media.

Media is handled in two, ten-cartridge magazines, which can easily be added to or removed from the tape library. Each library has a bar-code reader used to inventory the library contents, and a display on the front panel that is used for status and error codes. Keys located next to the display are used for selecting operating options. The 9427 has a front door of clear plastic so that the robotics, drives and cartridge tapes can be seen while in operation. The door has a key-lock for security.

Neither the 7GB 8mm Cartridge Tape unit located in the AS/400 system unit, nor the 7208-222, can be migrated to a 9427.

The 9427 is attached to the AS/400 via the Removable Media Device Attachment (#2621), with a maximum of one 9427 per #2621. The Removable Media Device Attachment (#2621) has two SCSI ports. The 9427 can attach to the #2621 using one or two ports (two ports are required for maximum performance of the 9427). If the 9427 is attached using only one SCSI port, then the other SCSI port can be used to attach other devices. A feature is available to support attachment to two systems with random access to cartridges, tape mirroring, offline tape copy and compare, and a label printer port.

Support for the 9427 is provided by OS/400 Version 3 Release 1. Backup, Recovery and Media Services/400 (5763-BR1) is recommended to support automation in tape handling, media management, and automatic migration of data between tape and DASD based on user defined policies. For those developing unique library applications, OS/400 provides a library command interface.

Remote Workstation Controllers

5251 Model 12

The 5251 Model 12 may be used to attach remote workstations. It is a workstation controller and communications unit for remote attachment of multiple display stations and printers. PC Support access by Personal Computers and Personal System/2s attached to the 5251 Model 12 will not be supported.

Note: Remote workstation controllers attach to the AS/400 via the communications subsystem features. The 5294 or the 5394 running in 5294 emulation mode, will not give IBM Personal Computers or Personal System/2s access to IBM PC Support/400.

5294

The 5294 Remote Control Unit can be used to attach up to eight 5250 type displays, printers, IBM Personal Computers and Personal System/2s, and Personal System/55 (AP only), to an AS/400 via a communications link. The function provided will be equivalent to that available on the System/36 and System/38 with the exception that PC Support access by Personal Computers and Personal System/2s attached to the 5294 will not be supported.

5394

The 5394 Remote Control Unit attaches up to sixteen 5250 type displays, printers, IBM Personal Computers and Personal System/2s, and Personal System/55 (AP only) to an AS/400 via a communications link. The function provided will be similar to that provided to the local workstations via the #6140 or #6040 local twinaxial workstation controllers.

5494 Remote Control Unit

The 5494 Remote Control Unit manages the operation of workstations and workstation communications to the AS/400. The IBM 5494-EXT replaces the IBM 5494-001 and the IBM 5494-002. The 5494 now has only one model, to which features are added customizing the 5494 for operational needs.

The 5494-EXT supports the attachment of up to 28 twinaxial devices. With the 5494 Twinaxial Expansion Kit installed, up to 56 twinaxial devices can communicate to the AS/400 through a Type 2.1 connection.

By installing the 5494 Token-Ring Adapter, the 5494-EXT has all the functional capabilities of the withdrawn 5494-002. It can communicate with an AS/400 system over a Token-Ring network while supporting up to 28 twinaxial devices, or can support Token-Ring attached devices while communicating with an AS/400 over an SDLC, X.21, or X.25 connection. In this configuration, the 5494 supports up to 80 devices of which up to 28 could be twinaxial attached and the rest Token-Ring attached.

The Ethernet Adapter supports IEEE 802.2 logical link control and IEEE 802.3 or DIX Version 2.0 frame format using a 10BASE2 (BNC), a 10BASE5 (15-pin D-SUB), or a 10BASE-T (RJ-45) connector. The 5494 Ethernet AUI Cable allows the attachment to an Ethernet Network using thick coaxial (10BASE5) cabling. Ethernet support allows the 5494 to be used as a gateway to an Ethernet LAN or attach to an AS/400 System via an Ethernet Network.

The 5494 Utility Program allows the selection of Concurrent Diagnostics, configuration information, or to reset and restart the 5494 Remote Control Unit from a remote Programmable Workstation (PWS). The PWS no longer needs to be directly attached to a 5494 to provide access to remote 5494's from a central site.

The IBM 5494 Release 3.0 microcode supports all the functions of the IBM 5494 Release 2.0 microcode and the following enhancements:

The IBM 6250 X Terminal offers high-performance, local-area network (LAN)-attached X terminals that provide a low-cost, desk-top platform for connectivity to the AS/400 and UNIX based host platforms (such as the RS/6000*. The 6250 X Terminal supports multiple 5250 emulation sessions to one or more AS/400s using an X Windows interface. The X terminal can also access UNIX host applications using either the memory efficient 6250 Window manger or the industry standard Motif** Window Manager. Either window manager provides a superb graphics platform for applications in the X Window environment.

The 6250 X Terminal Family includes four models...color and monochrome Ethernet models and color and monochrome Token-Ring models. They come with a base of 4MB of memory, expandable to 20MB or 16MB, depending on the model. The displays both have a resolution of 1024X768 and the color models support 256 colors.

The 6250 X Terminal requires one AS/400 on the LAN to have the IBM 6250 X Terminal Program for OS/400 (PRPQ 5799-QGP) installed. The X terminal down-loads the X window environment from the AS/400 and then can communicate with other hosts on the LAN.

The X terminals include an integrated, swivel display, keyboard, three button mouse and license to use the 6250 program. The X terminals have an easy to use setup menu for initial configuration and standard LAN connectors for the most popular Ethernet or Token-Ring connections.

Technical Description

Physical Specifications

         9404 System Unit:

o        Width: 350mm (13.8 in.)

o        Depth: 750mm (29.5 in.)

o        Height: 650mm (25.6 in.)

o        Weight: 91kg (200 lbs)

Operating Environment

The 9404 is suitable for use in a "quiet office" environment.

* The IBM 9348 model 2 and IBM 7208 models 2 and 12 tape drives have a dry bulb operating temperature range of 16 to 32C (60 to 90F).

Voltage

The 9404 can operate at either low voltage (100-127 VAC) or high voltage (200-240 VAC), 50/60 Hz. The default will be low voltage (100-127 VAC). A specify code (#2961) is required if the customer wants to use high voltage in order to receive the applicable power cord/plug.

Limitations

         ASCII devices attached to a AS/400 may not provide the same response time as 5250 devices. ASCII displays do not have identical keyboards, attributes, character sets, and functions to 5250 displays. Configuration of ASCII devices is more extensive than 5250 devices.

AS/400 PC Support is not supported for IBM Personal Computers or IBM Personal System/2s attached to 5251-12, 5294, 3174/3274, 5208, 5209, or ROLMbridge.

Hardware Requirements

The minimum system configuration consists of a 9404 System Unit, a system console (display) and 5853 (or equivalent) modem. All models of the AS/400 require the appropriate model-unique version of AS/400 Licensed Internal Code. This model-unique licensed internal code is delivered on magnetic media with the system unit and with model upgrades. The media used is that required for the device specified as the system alternate IPL device. The licensed internal code may also be preloaded on disk storage.

The program size of the IBM AS/400 Licensed Internal Code for the 9404 is 76.5MB.

The system console may be any supported display or IBM Personal Computer emulating a supported display or Personal System/55 (AP only) attached to the Twinaxial Workstation Controller or 5209 Link Protocol Converter or a 3151, 316X, or equivalent attached to the ASCII Workstation Controller or the 5208 Link Protocol Converter. An Apple Macintosh computer workstation may be utilized as the system console when attached to a 9404 MFIOP via the Workstation Adapter (for LocalTalk) feature. The console (display) should be located within 6 meters (20 ft.) of the operator's panel and the operator's panel must be viewable from this display. Although required, the system console is not a component of the base system unit.

Although a printer is not required for service, IBM's ability to diagnose the system and perform upgrades is greatly enhanced when a printer is available.

An IBM 5853, 7855, or equivalent modem is required for electronic customer support but is not a component of the base system unit.

Software Requirements

The 9404 C models and DASD features are designed to operate with OS/400 Version 1 Release 3 or subsequent releases.

It is recommended that all B, C, and D model systems be at Version 2 Release 1 or subsequent release and that the current level cumulative PTF package be applied in conjunction with the installed release. When performing a system upgrade, it is suggested that the IBM service support system and the Preventative Service Package are checked to ensure that required PTFs are available for installation.

OS/400 Version 2 Release 2 and later includes programming that provides for the detection of processor model changes on the 9404, via the use of a 16-character system password. The purpose of the system password is to identify all model changes to help maintain the quality and integrity of the system and to insure the protection of IBM's intellectual property, including IBM Licensed Internal Code and Licensed Programs. After the installation of OS/400 Version 2 Release 2 or later, the system will require a single entry of the system password when a system model change is performed.

There are also rare service conditions that may require re-entry of the system password. If the password must be entered and it is not known, the customer or service representative can select to operate in system password bypass mode. This will allow time to contact the marketing representative, who must obtain the correct system password by placing an RPQ order. If the correct system password is not available and the bypass period expires, the system will not complete the next IPL until the correct system password is provided. In an emergency (system down situation), IBM service can obtain the system password by contacting the ABS Product Support Center.

For more details on the system password, see the "System Operator's Guide," SC41-8082.

9404 installation, model conversion, and optional feature installation will be done by an IBM service representative.

Special Feature Codes -- Chargeable

Optional Non-Communication Features

The following optional features may be added to the 9404 models. All are available when initially ordered and as field upgrades except as noted. The IBM service representative is responsible for installing all upgrades and optional features. Four card slots are available in the 9404 System Unit. Five additional card slots are available in either the #7100, #7110 or #7120 Expansion Units.

When ordering features, it is necessary to consider the number of card slots required by the feature and the number of card slots available in each model. The main storage slots are fixed. Any of the four card slots can be used for I/O expansion. The number of I/O cards that can be attached to each model is listed in the description of the feature.

When ordering a 9404 System Unit using the HONE configurator CFAS400, the card slot count consideration will be handled automatically by the configurator for initial orders. If the configurator is not used, then the guidance provided in the feature descriptions should be used to configure a system.

(#2620) Cryptographic Processor

(For IBM US, No Longer Available as of December 31, 1999)

The Cryptographic Processor feature performs cryptographic functions based on a hardware implementation of the ANSI standard Data Encryption Standard (DES) and the RSA Public Key Algorithm (PKA). (The RSA algorithm was defined by R. Rivest, A. Shamir and L. Adleman.) Cryptographic applications are a cost-effective way of providing confidentiality and/or authentication and integrity assurance for many forms of valuable data. This protection is especially important in networks, which may be vulnerable to unauthorized access to data and resources. Application areas include banking, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and protection of proprietary information such as engineering drawings, customer lists, product plans, and personnel records.

Functions provided include encryption and decryption of data, authentication and verification of messages and data, creation and management of financial personal identification numbers (PINs) and management of cryptographic keys. The Public Key Algorithm supports the generation and verification of digital signatures for applications requiring positive electronic authentication of the identity of the sender of a message. The PKA function also provides efficient distribution of encrypted DES cryptographic keys.

Control of the tamper-resistant cryptographic hardware is provided through the supporting PRPQs listed below and optionally, through IBM Personal Security Cards using the IBM 4754-001 Security Interface Unit. The cryptographic functions provided conform to the IBM Common Cryptographic Architecture, are compatible with the IBM Transaction Security System, and interoperate with most DES based cryptographic products including IBM cryptographic products on MVS, RS/6000 (WT only), OS/2 and DOS and the IBM Cryptographic Support/400 licensed program (5728-CR1, 5738-CR1, 5763-CR1). Through its extensive use of industry standards, the cryptographic processor also interoperates with most other DES based cryptographic products.

This feature consists of an I/O processor card with a cable to attach a 4754-001, and a cable wrap connector (1 per system). The 4754-001, if desired, must be ordered separately.

Export authorization from the U.S. Government is required to ship this feature to countries outside the U.S. and Canada. Other countries may also regulate the export of this feature. Export licenses for feature #2620 will generally be approved for shipment to financial institutions and subsidiaries of U.S. companies. Export of feature #2628 may be approved in other cases. Check with your local export regulation coordinator for specific country requirements.

This feature requires the support of OS/400 Version 2 Release 3 and PRPQ 5799-FBR or OS/400 Version 3 Release 1.0 or later, and PRPQ 5799-XBY. PKA functions require OS/400 Version 3 Release 1.0 or later, and PRPQ 5799-XBY. Feature #2620 is not supported by IBM Cryptographic Support/400.

Publications: For additional information refer to the following:

(#6106) Dual Disk Unit (640 MB)

(For IBM US, No Longer Available as of November 4, 1994)

The Dual Disk Unit (640 MB) contains two 320 MB 3 1/2-inch DASD drives and can be installed in all 9404 models in the first DASD position. This feature, available for field install only, by IBM service representatives, is for upgrading the base DASD in a 9404 which still has a single 315 MB disk unit in the first slot. The 315 MB disk unit which must be removed from the first slot may be reinstalled in the third slot, or any position in an expansion unit, or in any open position in another system.

IMPORTANT: Installing this feature requires a total save and restore of all DASD on the system and reload of model unique licensed internal code. In addition to the time this process takes, because it involves licensed internal code, operating system code and customer data, planning and care must be exercised to not experience data loss and its associated recovery time. Instructions on the installation procedure are included with feature #6106. An IBM service representative will install feature #6106 and reload the model unique licensed internal code. The customer is responsible for saving all data off the DASD before the installation of feature #6106 and restoring all data after the IBM service representative completes the installation. Card slots used: None. Maximums: One in the base (first position) of a 9404 System Unit.

When feature #6106, Dual Disk Unit (640 MB), is field installed in a system unit, it replaces the 315 MB disk unit in the first position. The 315 MB disk unit which must be removed from the first position may be reinstalled in the third position, (requires feature #5133), or any position in an expansion unit, or in any open position in another system. When that is done, specify codes need to be added to the system's inventory record to accurately reflect the resulting DASD configuration.

When feature #6106 is added to a system unit with two drives installed, and the drive in position one will be removed and reinstalled in the third position, order specify code #9100, quantity two, on the base system unit to indicate that both the original drives will remain in the system unit. When #6106 is added to a system unit with three drives installed, and the drive in the first position is removed, order specify code #9100, quantity one, on the base system unit to indicate that the drive in the second position will remain there. If the removed drive is subsequently installed in an expansion unit, or in another system, a second #9100 specify code should be ordered on the receiving system unit to indicate the presence of an extra disk. These codes will be included automatically by the HONE configurator, CFAS400, for orders to be entered via SYSLINK. If the configurator is not used, the codes must be manually included in the configuration and ordered.

This feature is orderable on the B, C, and D models and is supported on the E and F models when ordered as a feature conversion MES.

Devices include Macintosh personal computers, Macintosh printers, LocalTalk compatible devices and the IBM Workstation Adapter feature. The maximum length of a LocalTalk network is 300 meters (988 feet). The maximum speed of the LocalTalk network is 230.4Kbps.

LocalTalk workstation networking is supervised by portions of the AppleTalk protocol. OS/400 Version 2 Release 3 or later supports attached devices as local 5250 workstations. The program SNA*ps 5250 Emulator Version 1.2, is required on the Macintosh workstation. Although each network can physically connect 32 devices, including the Workstation on Adapter, the recommended performance limitation is 20 active sessions.

The Workstation Adapter feature is packaged on a standard daughter card and attaches as feature #8054 or #9054 to the MFIOP or as feature #6054 to the Six-Line Communications Controller (#2623). Each Workstation Adapter feature is shipped with a connector box and a two- foot cable, used to attach it to a LocalTalk cable network.

Feature #8054/#9054 supports attachment of an Apple Macintosh as the system console except on the Models D10 and D20. When attached to the MFIOP the #8054/#9054 is co-resident with the standard ECS adapter.

One Workstation Adapter is supported on the Six-Line Communications Controller. A second adapter on the controller may only be an X.21, EIA 232/V.24 or V.35 communication adapter. The third of three adapter positions must not be used.

Feature #8054 should be ordered when LocalTalk is desired for the system console and feature #9050, base Twinaxial Workstation Controller or #9041, base ASCII Workstation Controller were selected. Feature #9054 should be ordered when LocalTalk is desired for the system console and no additional twinaxial or ASCII workstation controllers are desired.

The number of #6054/#8054/#9054 features supported by model is listed in the Workstation Configuration Table. of Apple Computer, Inc.

This feature provides the AS/400 system with one communications port capable of T1/J1 (1.544Mbps) or E1 (2.048Mbps) speeds. Communication over public or private Frame Relay or X.25 Networks or over point-to- point non-switched SDLC lines is possible. Feature #2666 consists of a card, a wrap connector and Licensed Internal Code. Three physical interface types are offered for connection to external Data Communications Equipment (DCE) such as Data Service Units (DSU), Channel Service Units (CSU) or multiplexers, which in turn provide connection to the communication facilities.

The physical interfaces are:

The cable type plugged into the adapter and OS/400 configuration parameters determine which of the three interfaces will be used. One of the following cables must be specified when ordering feature #2666:

Note 1: Use of this 24.4 meter (80 foot) V.35 cable restricts the maximum line speed to 64Kbps.

Note 2: Use of these longer cables requires that the attaching Data Communications Equipment (DCE) support the V.36 transmitter signal element timing Data Terminal Equipment (DTE) source signal.

If, after initial installation a change of interface type or cable length is desired, a separate cable may be ordered.

The High Speed Communications Adapter supports Frame Relay, X.25 or SDLC protocols. The specific protocol to be used is selected by OS/400 configuration commands. The Frame Relay, X.25 or SDLC code is then loaded into the adapter when the line is enabled.

The Frame Relay code load supports up to 256 permanent virtual circuits on the 9406, through one physical port. The virtual circuits can be individually configured for the following types of connections:

Logical Link Control (LLC) IEEE 802.2/ISO 8802.2 Type I (connectionless) and Type II (connection-oriented) services, provided by the Frame Relay code, allow TCP/IP and SNA sessions over these connections. Source Route Bridging function allows products on a remote Token-Ring, FDDI or SDDI LAN to communicate with the AS/400 through a remote bridge. Transparent Bridging is employed for the remote Ethernet and IEEE 802.3 LAN connections. AS/400 feature #2666 interoperates with IBM RouteXpander/2 and the IBM 6611 Network Processor for bridged connections to remote Token-Ring LANs. Interoperation with the IBM 6611 also provides a bridged connection to remote IEEE 802.3 and Ethernet Version 2 LANs. TCP/IP Forum RFC 1490 (Request For Comment - Multiprotocol Connect over Frame Relay) defines the industry standard formats used to facilitate this bridged interoperation. Support of these formats allows the High Speed Communications Adapter to also interoperate with other industry standard bridges.

Frame Relay Standards: Frame Relay functions of the High Speed Communications Adapter feature are implemented in accordance with these standards:

The SDLC code load supports non-switched communications over any of the three possible interfaces (V.35, V.36/EIA 449 or X.21).

The X.25 code load supports up to 64 virtual circuits over any of the three possible interfaces (V.35, V.36/EIA 449 or X.21).

Frame Relay and SDLC functions require OS/400 Version 2 Release 3 or later. X.25 function requires OS/400 Version 3 Release 1 or later. I/O Card Slots Used: One. Maximums: Two on Models D10, D20, D25, E10, E20, E25, F10 and F20. Four on Model F25.

With a wireless LAN connection, end-users can have roaming, portable access to the information they need, wherever they are, within the area of local wireless radio coverage. In addition, the AS/400 Wireless LAN Adapter may be the preferred solution in situations where wiring is expensive or impossible or where computing resource and device layouts change periodically. Support is provided for portable and stationary PCs, for specialized hand-held devices used for data collection, and for connections between AS/400 systems.

The AS/400 Wireless LAN Adapter uses an advanced technology, direct sequence, spread-spectrum radio operating in the 2.4 to 2.4835GHz band. The operating band may be narrower in some countries to meet country regulations. Spread spectrum provides excellent resistance to interference from other radio frequency (RF) sources.

Availability of this feature in any particular country is dependent on current country radio frequency regulations and certification for use by the country.

The AS/400 Wireless LAN Adapter has not been approved by the Federal Communications Commission. This device is not, and may not be offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased until the approval of the FCC has been obtained.

Operation in the United States does not require a license from the Federal Communications Commission.

The AS/400 Wireless LAN Adapter comes with an antenna and a cable for connecting the antenna to the adapter. The area of coverage may be extended beyond the coverage provided by the antenna attached to the adapter by adding AS/400 Wireless LAN Access Points to the network via an unshielded twisted-pair wired backbone. In addition, access points may be connected without wires, acting as wireless repeaters. Each adapter or access point generates one cell of coverage area. Networks are designed to create overlapping cells to ensure consistent coverage of the area desired. The AS/400 Wireless LAN Adapter allows transparent seamless movement from cell to cell while maintaining a continuous host session. A site survey by trained professionals is recommended to assist in network design.

The AS/400 Wireless LAN Adapter operates with existing application software interfaces. Existing 5250 and LAN-oriented applications can use the AS/400 Wireless LAN Adapter without change.

The AS/400 Wireless LAN Adapter supports the AS/400 family of wireless LAN and data collection devices. This family of devices provides comprehensive connectivity solutions for attaching personal computers and data collection devices to the AS/400 in a mobile, wireless fashion. The AS/400 Wireless LAN Adapter also operates with the DATASPAN** 2.4GHz family of products from the Telxon Corporation. In addition to the AS/400 Wireless LAN Adapter, the following AS/400 wireless LAN networking devices are available from IBM:
