Additional Features

FEATURES BENEFITS
Investment Protection When installing an Ethernet LAN that is attached to an AS/400–iSeries, reliable Twinax displays and IPDS/SCS printers can operate in the new Ethernet environment maintaining the usefulness of the equipment
Eliminates the Need for Twinax Work Station Controller A significant saving is realized by installing an I-O Xip Twinax Controller instead of an expensive IBM Twinax Work Station Controller
No IBM Remote Controller Required When remote access to an AS/400–iSeries is required, an expensive IBM or IBM compatible remote controller is replaced by an economical I–O Xip Controller
No Leased Lines or Expensive Modems When communicating to a remote site, there is no need to spend valuable resources on high-priced leased lines and special modems.
No Re-cabling The I-O Xip allows Twinax displays and printers to be connected to existing Twinax or twisted pair cabling eliminating the expense of re-cabling
Multiple Protocols Supports the auto configuring TN5250e and AnyNet for remote locations or SNA for a local attachment
Multiple Host Supports up to 4 hosts
Multiple Sessions Up to 4 sessions per physical device address can be configured – Up to 56 logical sessions supported
