I-O Corporation IPDS Connectivity Solutions for Network Printers to IBM Power8/7/6, iSeries AS/400 and Power9, z9, zSeries S/390 Mainframes
I-O Corporation IPDS Print Servers, Print Server Gateways and IPDS Server Software provide high speed Ethernet-in, Ethernet-out IPDS connectivity to convert native IBM host print jobs to PCL, allowing them to be printed by a laser printer, digital copier of MFP anywhere on the corporate network.
Connects from 1 to 256 PCL 5e (or higher) compatible Ethernet capable laser printers or MFP devices, based on model of print server/gateway/software
Supports Advanced Function Printing (AFP) using IPDS protocol
Also supports standard Host printing using SCS protocol
High speed printing - Supports printers with up to 250 pages/minute per printer
Supports over 100 AFP/IPDS Fonts
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 error reporting, page range printing etc.
I-O's award winning IBM AFP/IPDS and 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, these solutions support high-speed, high performance PCL compatible network attached printers. Theysupport printing speeds of 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.
Full Printing Control from IBM Host
They offer the same reliable, full-function IBM host printing and control found with traditional direct attached Twinax/Coax printers. With these solutions, IBM host print jobs are not lost in the black hole of "Remote Out Queue" LAN printing. They provide bi-directional communication between the printersand the IBM host, allowing error reporting and page range printing.
