I-O 5760e IP Print Server Gateway
for i5, iSeries & zSeries Mainframes

A Print Server Gateway to Provide Full
iSeries / zSeries Printer Connectivity

for LAN Attached Matrix, Thermal Laser Printers and Multi-Function Printers (MFP)

Overview

The I-O Corporation 5760e SCS Printer Gateway is a high speed Ethernet-in, Ethernet-out SCS gateway print server designed to convert native IBM Power8, Power7, iSeries AS/400 i5 or zSeries S/390 zSeries host print jobs to PCL, allowing them to be printed by almost any printer (laser, matrix, thermal) on the Network. The 5760e Print Server Gateway can be initially ordered with support from 1 to 10 printers, and delivers IBM  SCS printing via TCP/IP, providing the control and printer feedback found in an IBM host environment.  When additional printer support is needed, it is simply upgraded via a new license code.

 

Features

  • Connects from 1 to 10 Ethernet capable printers (laser, matrix, thermal)  or MFP devices

  • Printer Session is "Auto Configured" on the IBM host using TN5250e or TN3270e

  • Supports standard Host printing using SCS protocol

  • High speed printing - Supports printers with up to 250 pages/minute per printer

  • 10 / 100 Mbps Ethernet LAN, auto sensing

  • Multiple Host support (AS/400, iSeries, eServer i5,  and S/390 zSeries)

  • Host printing via Telnet (TN5250e and TN3270E) and TCP/IP (PPR/PPD

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

  • Host controlled printing, including Forms Alignment Messages, Page Range Printing etc.

  • I-O's award winning SCS printer emulations

  • Increases print speeds 

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

High Speed Printing

Attached to a network, the 5760e supports almost any network attached printer. It supports printing up to 250 pages/min per printer. Whether printing from an IBM Power System (System i, iSeries, AS/400) or a zSeries - S/390, fast printing can be obtained with laser printers supporting port 9100. In addition to the Ethernet gateway connection, the adaptio Gateway will also support one locally attached USB printer.

Full Printing Control from IBM Host

The 5760e offers the same reliable, full-function IBM host printing and control found with traditional direct attached Twinax/Coax printers. With the 5760e Print Server Gateway your printers are configured as true "Device" printers and not "Remote Out Queue Printers".  Your IBM host print jobs are not lost in the black hole of "Remote Out Queue" LAN printing. The 5760e provides bi-directional communication between the printer and the IBM host, allowing error reporting and page range printing.

Some of the print queue features you will get back are:

  • Page Range Printing - Permits users to print select page ranges from large documents and reports.

  • Forms Alignment Messages -  Get the forms alignment messages you are familiar with you need for precise alignment of your pre-printed forms, something you do not get with Remote Out Queue printing

  • Printer Error Reporting - Prevents loss of IBM Host print data by providing same level of print status reporting as a direct system attached Twinax or coax printer.

  • True IBM iSeries AS/400 and S/390 zSeries Printer Emulations - Permits full-function IBM Host printing on the attached LAN printer. 3812-01 (SCS) laser, 4214 matrix and 5224/25/56 matrix printer emulations.

  • No Host Print Transform - No need to waste valuable processor cycles on EBCIDIC to ASCII translation.  The 5450e / 5430e handles that all with it's own embedded RISC processor.

  • Simultaneous Multi-Host Printing - Maximizes printer utilization by supporting concurrent printing not only from the IBM Hosts but from Windows, UNIX, etc.

Easy to Use

I-O's Configuration Utility software is included with every 5760e. Configuration is made easy through the use of a menu-based utility.

Features

Benefits

High Speed Printing, up to 250 ppm

Data conversion is accomplished at the 5760e Gateway and sent to the printer via the Ethernet Network. The Adaptio Gateway takes advantage of high-speed, high-performance printers.

Supports up to 10 Network Attached Printers

Up to ten (10) printers can be configured as  SCS virtual printers.

AFP/IPDS & SCS Printing

IBM host printing to network attached printers. Laser Printers/Copiers/MFPs can be configured as SCS Printers. 

Full IBM Host Control of Print Jobs

The 5760e Gateway provides a bi-directional communication between the host and the printer, via port 9100 and PJL commands.

Remote Printing

The printers can be attached locally or remotely via a WAN or VPN network. Printers do not need to be directly attached or physically next to the 5760e Gateway.

One USB Port

One printer can be directly attached to the 5760e Gateway for IBM host print jobs.

I-O's Award Winning Printer Emulations

All functions such as True Print Complete, SCS Duplex, Page Offset, COR, Fonts, Barcode, are fully supported by the 5760e Gateway.
