I-O 5735km IPDS - SCS
Printer Gateway for AS/400, iSeries, i5 & S/390 zSeries

A Print Server Gateway to Support AFP/IPDS
on LAN Attached Kyocera-Mita Printers and 
Multi-Function Printers (MFP)

Overview

The I-O Corporation 5735km IPDS Print Server Gateway is a high speed Ethernet-in, Ethernet-out print server designed to convert native IBM host print jobs to PCL, allowing them to be printed on a  Kyocera Laser Printer, Copier or multi-functional product (MFP). The I-O 5735km Gateway delivers IBM AFP/IPDS and SCS printing via Ethernet, and provides the control and printer feedback found in an IBM host environment.

In addition to IBM host connectivity, they support the Kyocera's value added finishing features on the higher end models.

If you have multiple Kyocera printers or MFPs, the 5755km Gateway that supports three printers may be the better solution for you. Click here for information on the 5755km.

  • Multiple LAN protocols (SNA, TCP/IP, IPX/SPX, NetBIOS)

  • Host printing via Telnet (TN5250e and TN3270E), SNA (APPC) or AnyNet

  • Simple, one step set-up (auto configuration) when using TN5250e or TN3270e

  • Host controlled Printing, including error reporting, page range printing etc.

  • I-O's award winning IBM AFP/IPDS and SCS printer emulations

  • Easy to install and use, includes I-O's Configuration Utility software

High Speed Printing

Attached to the LAN, the 5735km supports the high-speed and high-performance Kyocera printers and MFPs.  Whether printing from an IBM i5, iSeries, AS/400 or a zSeries-S/390, fast printing can be obtained.  Data conversion is accomplished at the 5735km and sent to the printer via the Ethernet LAN.  Without the bottleneck of the parallel port the 5735km supports high-speed printing featured in Kyocera printers

Full Printing Control from IBM Host

The 5735km offers the same reliable, full-function IBM host printing and control found with direct Twinax/Coax attached printers. With the 5735km, IBM host print jobs are not lost in the black hole of LAN printing. The 5735km provides bi-directional communication between the Kyocera printers and the IBM host, allowing error reporting and page range printing.


Easy to Use

I-O's Configuration Utility software is included with every 5735km. Whether selecting TCP/IP or SNA, configuration is made easy through the use of a menu-based utility.

Features Benefits
AFP/IPDS & SCS Printing

IBM host print jobs can be printed on a single Kyocera printer in an Ethernet environment

High Speed Printing, 100+ ppm

Data conversion is accomplished at the 5735km and sent to the printer via the Ethernet LAN - Without the bottleneck of the parallel port the 5735km supports high-speed printing featured in Kyocera printers

I-O Customized Finishing Comands

Kyocera finishing features such as duplexing, collating, stapling, folding, hole-punching, etc. can be utilized in a host environment

Full IBM Host Control of Print Jobs

The 5735km provides bi-directional communication between the host and the printer, via port 9100 and PJL commands

Remote Printing

The printer can be attached locally or remotely via a WAN or VPN network. The printer does not need to be next to the 5735km.

I-O's Award Winning Printer Emulations

All AFP/IPDS and SCS functions such as duplex, page offset, COR, fonts and barcode, are fully supported by the 5735km.

Enhanced Telnet 5250 (TN5250e) and Telnet 3270 (TN3270e)

Communicates with the IBM Host using native TCP/IP.

Page Offset Functions

Page range printing

Permits users to print select page ranges from large documents and reports.

Off-loading of Data Conversion

Eliminates unnecessary overhead by converting EBCDIC data to ASCII data directly on the I-O 5735km.

Simultaneous, multi-host printing

Maximizes printer utilization by supporting concurrent printing from the host.

10BaseT and 100BaseT

Provides versatility in attaching to LANs at different speeds.
