I-O 5430e Print Server

Finally...Seamless AS/400 & Mainframe LAN Printing

The I-O 5430e is a single port, multi-protocol print server that combines Ethernet, IBM AS/400 - iSeries, and Mainframe printing over a LAN.

The I-O 5430e attaches one parallel printer directly to a 10 or 100 Mbps Ethernet LAN, and supports multiple protocols including TCP/IP, IPX/SPX, and NetBIOS. This support allows the I-O 5430e to be used with a varity of operating systems including Windows, Novell, Unix, OS/400, and OS/390.

The I-O 5430e also supports one IBM printer session featuring I-O's field-proven IBM printer emulations. Combined, these unique characteristics enable users to share printer resources even when several different operating systems are in use.

Reliable, Full-Function AS/400 & Mainframe LAN Printing

In addition to operating as an Ethernet LAN print server, the I-O 5430e supports AS/400 - iSeries and IBM Mainframe printing over TCP/IP, SNA (APPC), and AnyNet (SNA encapsulated in TCP/IP). Using any one of these protocols, the I-O 5430e allows the LAN attached printer to offer the same reliable, full-function IBM host printing support as a direct system-attached 5250/3270 printer. These protocols also offer users one step set-up (auto-configuration) as well.

The I-O 5430e can also speed up IBM Host printing. Since the IBM EBCDIC to ASCII data conversion is done by the I-O 5430e it frees the host, or a client PC from performing this resource-intensive task. This means a faster first page out, and overall increased speed.

Full Print Queue Control

You will be able to have the same full print control over a TCP/IP printer just as if it was a direct attached twinax printer. 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.
– Printer Error Reporting - Prevents loss of IBM Host print data by providing same level of print status reporting as a direct system attached twinax/coax printer.
– True IBM AS400 & Mainframe Printer Emulations - Permits full-function AS/400 printing on the attached LAN printer. 3812-01 (SCS) laser, 4214 matrix, 5224/25/56 and 3287 matrix printer emulations.
– No Host Print Transform - No need to waste valuable processor cycles on EBCIDIC to ASCII translation. The 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 Novell, Windows, and UNIX.
