TPS®/ 3270 ( BSC ) is a full-featured mainframe 3270 terminal ( LU2 ) and printer emulator ( LU1 / LU3 ). Supported on IBM® AIX®, TPS®/3270 ( BSC ) enables downstream Unix Systems access to legacy applications or data on IBM® mainframes ( i.e., TSO™, CICS™, VM™, etc. ). Using BSC ( Binary Synchronous Communications ), to handle the actual communications, your AIX® system can connect to the host / mainframe system and emulate 3270 terminals ( LU2 ) and 3270 printers ( LU1 / LU3 ).

TPS®/ 3270 ( BSC ) can function on many types of terminals and printers; thus, eliminating the need for purchasing any new hardware. It is also designed to allow 3270 print jobs to be directed to any standard printer connected to a AIX® system via any standard print command. Print data can also be directed elsewhere, such as scripts, or stored in pre-specified directories for later use.

TPS®/ 3270 ( BSC ) provides an API, Extended High Level Language Application Programming Interface ( EHLLAPI ), where users can create their applications to control mainframe applications or even automate file transfers. This API provides basic functions, plus others, to allow complete control without user intervention.



TPS®/ 3270 ( BSC ) also has an Extended High Level Language Application Programming Interface (EHLLAPI). This allows users to create their own applications to control mainframe applications or even automate file transfers.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Supports standard 3270 protocol emulation for terminals ( LU2 ) and printers ( LU1 and LU3 )
  • EHLLAPI ( Extended High Level Language Programming Interface ) support allows applications to control mainframe applications or even automate file transfers. Provides screen scraping capabilities
  • LU Pooling allows easy assignment of sessions and simplifies system administration
  • X-terminal support provides the user with easy-to-read text in proportion to the window size
  • Macro key support enhances efficiency when dealing with repetitive tasks
  • Support for multiple languages ( National Language Support )
  • Trace facility simplifies problem determination
  • Response Time Monitor assists in measuring network efficiency
  • Very easy installation and configuration
  • From TPS® Systems — with 25+ year tradition of excellence in providing network software and support for large global enterprises



PRODUCT POSITIONING

TPS®/ 3270 ( BSC ) is an ideal solution when:

  • Accessing 3270 BSC host applications
  • Automated control of 3270 BSC host applications
  • Screen scraping

 

FEATURES

3270 Terminal Support ( LU2 )

  • 3278 Models 2 ( 24x80 ), 3 ( 32x80 ), 4 ( 43x80 )
  • 3279 Color Models 2 ( 24x80 ), 3 ( 32x80 ), 4 ( 43x80 ), 5 ( 27x132 )

3270 Printer Support ( LU1 and LU3 )

  • 3286 Model 1 and 2 ( up to 102x255 )
  • 3287 Model 1 and 2 ( up to 102x255 )

Session Support

  • 32 total sessions per physical connection
  • Multiple 3270 sessions per terminal
  • Session suspend capability

Terminal and Printer Support

  • Terminal support using Terminfo & Curses
  • Print screen support

LU Pooling

LU Pooling can be used to control the assignment and usage of LUs so that the user does not need to know the LU name. LUs can be assigned by pool name, user name, TTY name, or LU name.

Response Time Monitor

  • Display of RTM boundary counts and current average response time
  • Definable threshold for average response time

Protocol Support

TPS®/3270 ( BSC ) currently supports the standard 3270 protocol for terminals ( LU2 ) and printers ( LU1 and LU3 ). 3270 BSC requires the use of TPS®/BSC Support to handle the actual communications so it does not have any configuration dealing with the connection.

API Support

TPS®/3270 ( BSC ) also has an Extended High Level Language Application Programming Interface ( EHLLAPI ). This allows users to create their own applications to control mainframe applications or even automate file transfers. The API has all the basic functions; plus others, to allow complete control without user intervention.

Additional Features

  • Keyboard remapping
  • Extended data stream support including color, character attributes, and extended highlighting
  • Macro key support
  • Initialization and termination macros
  • Light pen emulation
  • Provides a trace facility for problem determination
  • National Language Support
