Description

IBM System/36 applications using non-privileged, documented interfaces are object code compatible on AS/400 Advanced 36. You won't have to recompile or change your IBM System/36 applications. Interactive response time of IBM AS/400 Advanced Model 436 is from two to six times faster than IBM System/36. Batch performance is from four (on an entry #2102) to thirty times faster (on a maximum configured #2106). Actual performance improvement depends on workload characteristics.

Three pre-defined, specially-priced packages make it easier for you to order. The smallest package contains the system processor, 32MB of main storage, system software (System Support Program, LAN Communications, RPG II, Utilities, Query/36, PC Support/36*), a CD-ROM for IBM distributed software, Multifunction Processor, a 1.03GB disk storage unit, a 2.5GB 1/4-inch tape drive, and a workstation controller to support up to 40 twinaxial workstations. Each can be ordered with additional optional features.

In addition, convenience kits are available to upgrade AS/400 Model 236 systems to the new model.

* PC Support/36 is not part of the DBCS BasePac.

Operating System Flexibility

AS/400 Advanced 36 Model 236 with 64-bit processor, announced in 1994 as a faster object-code compatible System/36, supports existing System/36 software functions and interfaces. In 1996, with the AS/400 Advance 36 with PowerPC technology, you can continue to operate as an SSP-only system, or you can add OS/400 and also run AS/400 applications.

To run both AS/400 and System/36 applications concurrently means that you can add new AS/400 applications without migrating or changing your current System/36 applications. You can move to AS/400 applications at your own pace.

AS/400 Advanced 36 with SSP Release 7.5 and OS/400 Version 3 Release 6 allow you to use functions such as integrated fax, increased LAN and communications support, wireless LAN, ECS, improved PC support and Internet access; or use additional capacity beyond that supported by SSP.

Model Description 9402-436

AS/400 Advanced 36 Model 436 supports three feature processors.

  • #2102 processor provides equivalent performance to the #2100 processor of the Model 236 (actual performance may be more or less depending on the application mix).
  • #2104 and #2106 processors provide increased performance for the Model 436. Greatly increased DASD maximums and additional I/O provide customers with enhanced growth options.

IBMs and your Competitive Advantage

Migration to an AS/400 Advanced 36 from a System/36 requires the utilization of provided transition aid software. You can continue to run your current System/36 applications, unchanged, without recompiling. In addition, all the normal SSP operating system and utility functions are supported, a feature which competition cannot offer.

AS/400 Advanced 36 Model 236 installations can upgrade to AS/400 Advanced 36 Model 436. For additional information refer to "AS/400 Advanced 36 Planning and Reference Handbook" (SA21-9656).

RPO Actions for package MESes

Because of the special validation rules on the initial order packages, there are a number of MES actions that cannot be performed in AAS without first unpacking the installed system. On the first MES to selective package systems, a list of RPO (Record Purposes Only) actions must be created to unpack the package. The RPO list is given below by package.

Notes:

Capacities shown are for models shipped from the plant and include any prerequisite expansion features. Some combinations of devices may be subject to configuration restrictions.

The relative performance rating for SSP and OS/400 were achieved when running each operating system dedicated on the system, and may not be realized in all environments. The performance when running SSP and OS/400 concurrently, will vary depending on the workload.

* The relative system performance is estimated based on running the S/36 version of RAMP-C in SSP with a maximum configured Model 236 equaling 1.0. The SSP relative performance rating can not be compared to the OS/400 relative performance ratings.

** The relative system performance ratios are estimated based on AS/400 environment, native RAMP-C workload, with a 9404 B10 with 16MB of main storage and 945MB of DASD equaling 1.0. The ratios shown were estimated at maximum configurations running at 70% utilization. Relative system performance ratios may not be realized in all environments.

*** SSP Supports 4GB but additional DASD may be ordered (up to the indicated limit) for storing Licensed Internal Code, mirroring or Raid 5, and future growth

  |___________________|____________________|______________________|
 
  Notes: 1) Each SSP supports a maximum of 4GB.
         2) SSP and Licensed Programs requires approximately 100MB
         3) SLIC is System Licensed Internal Code (microcode) on
            the Advanced 36.
 

EXAMPLE 1: On a large Package with SLIC, SSP and Release 7.5 Licensed Programs the approximate disk space needed would be 900MB.

EXAMPLE 2: On a large Package with SLIC, SSP and Release 7.5 Licensed Programs, and OS/400 the approximate disk space needed would be 2200MB.

AS/400 Advanced 36 System Packages

AS/400 Advanced 36 with PowerPC technology is offered in three pre- defined packages:

  • Entry Package A
  • Growth Package B
  • Large Package C

Each package is a complete system with basic software including System Support Program (now including LAN communications), RPG II, Utilities, Query/36 and PC Support/36 (PC Support/36 is not included in DBCS packages). This simplifies ordering and installation since many customers require these licensed programs.

The Entry Package A has 32MB of memory, a 1.03GB disk, 2.5GB 1/4-inch cartridge tape drive, CD-ROM, an EIA 232/V.24 communications line with an enhanced 6-meter/20 foot cable, a panel keylock, and the ability to attach up to 40 twinaxial workstations.

The Growth Package B has 1.96GB disk and builds on the Entry Package A by adding DASD power, a second EIA 232/V.24 communications line and cable and two IOP attachment slots.

The Large Package C has 3.93GB disk, 64MB of memory, support for an additional 40 twinaxial workstations (supporting up to 80 workstations), six IOP attachment slots and a Six-Line Communications Controller.

These packages are designed for the customer who is planning to run only the SSP operating system. Customers choosing to run both SSP and OS/400 operating systems must plan for additional DASD and memory to fill their total requirement. A Minimum of 64MB of memory and 3GB of DASD is required to support SSP and OS/400 simultaneously.

With the addition of OS/400 and a modem, Advanced 36 customers will be able use the Electronic Customer Support (ECS) utilizing an EIA 232/V.24 communications line which is shipped with each package.

Optional items may be added to any package on the initial order or after installation.

AS/400 Advanced 36 users can reduce the impact of utility power interruptions and the associated system recovery activities by purchasing an optional Uninterruptible Power System. It is highly recommended since it contributes to improved system availability. Refer to the "New Device" section for more information.

Convenient upgrade kits are available for the existing AS/400 Model 236. See the processor upgrade section for more information.

3494 Tape Library Dataserver Model L12

The 3494 Tape Library Dataserver Model L12 offers the high reliability and high availability features of the Model L10 with the added support of the 3590 High Performance Tape Subsystem Model B1A. This allows customers to automate tape data handling with the latest technology. The ability to support the 3490E and 3590 technology in the same library offers customers a fast and convenient way to manage these tape media.

3590 High Performance Tape Subsystem

The 3590 is a new automated tape subsystem for the AS/400, reaching higher levels of reliability, capacity and performance. The drive rate of 9 MB per second is three times faster than previous IBM 3480, 3490 or 3490E tape drives, allowing tape applications to read and write data more quickly. Using the built-in data compression capability, the 3590 has a potential maximum throughput of 20 MB per second. Actual throughput is a function of end-to-end system capabilities including processor, DASD, bus, IOP, OS/400 blocking and data compaction.

The 3590 uses new read/write and media technology for vastly increased capacity and reliability. The new cartridge has an uncompacted data capacity of 10GB, or typically over 30GB assuming a 3:1 compaction ratio. The capacity of an individual drive has further been increased by the addition of the Automatic Cartridge Facility (ACF), which allows an operator to mount ten cartridges at a time via a magazine. Thus an individual drive can provide storage for 100 to 300GB of data. Exploitation of the capacity is a function of data characteristics.

The 3590 is available in two models. The Model B11 is rack mounted and includes a 10-cartridge Automatic Cartridge Facility (ACF) that can be used in random access mode as a mini-library. The Model B1A does not include the ACF and is designed to fit into the 3494 Tape Library Dataserver, increasing total library capacity to over 90 terabytes.

The 3590 attaches to all DXX and later models of the AS/400, except the X02 and P03 models, using AS/400 Feature #6501 (Magnetic Media Subsystem Controller). Each feature #6501 can support up to two tape drives. The 3490 has two SCSI ports and can be shared between two systems.

Backup Recovery and Media Services/400 (BRMS/400) is recommended to support automation in tape handling, media management, fast search, and automatic migration of data between tape and DASD based on user defined policies. For developing unique applications, OS/400 provides a command interface.

7208 8mm External Tape Drives

The 7208 is an 8mm helical scan, medium performance, high capacity, streaming tape drive with models supporting media capacity of up to 7.0GB per cartridge. The Model 2 (Withdrawn from marketing) provides 2.3GB capacity. When hardware data compression (HDC) on the IOP is enabled, it typically provides 1.5 times improvement in capacity and transfer rate. The 7208 Model 12 provides 5GB capacity and the Model 222 provides 7GB. Both Models 12 and 222 support an implementation of IBM's Improved Data Recording Capability (IDRC) that typically provides a two times improvement in capacity and transfer rate.

All 7208 models are stand-alone, table-top devices, and can be used for save/restore, alternate IPL, program interchange and 8mm cartridge tape interchange with other AS/400 systems. Kits for rack-mounting are available via RPQ 841997 for the Model 2 and RPQ 841998 for the Model 12. The 7208 attaches to the AS/400 via Removable Media Device Attachment Feature (#2621). This feature supports up to two tape devices.

Full interchange of data is supported between Models 002, 012 and 222, the 9427 and the AS/400 Advanced Series internal 7GB 8mm tape units, using the proper tape density and 7208-002/012/222 tape media. All models use the same media and cleaning cartridges. The Models 002, 012 and 222 do NOT support data interchange with the 7208 Model 1 or Model 11 attached to RS/6000 systems.

The Model 2 has an instantaneous data transfer rate of 245KBps second. When HDC is enabled the unattended save rate would typically be 1GB/Hr with 3.5GB of data stored per cartridge. The Model 12 has an instantaneous data transfer rate of 500KBps. When IDRC is enabled the unattended save rate would typically be 3GB/Hr with 10GB of data stored per cartridge. The Model 222 has a sustained data transfer rate of 500KBps. Using IDRC, maximum effective data transfer rate is up to 1 MBps, and capacity is up to 14GB of data stored per cartridge, depending on the type of data.

Maximums: See the AS/400 model summary table.

9348 Magnetic Tape Units

The 9348 is a streaming 1/2-inch reel-to-reel tape drive that provides save/restore, alternate IPL, program distribution and 1/2-inch reel tape interchange.

The 9427-210 is a stand-alone unit, and the 9427-211 is rack-mount unit that requires 14 EIA units and 1/2 of the horizontal rack space. Two Model 211 units can be placed in a rack, side-by-side. Each 9427 supports one or two 7GB 8mm tape drives. Up to twenty tape cartridges are supported. Optional features to support dual host channels, tape mirroring for fault tolerance, off-line host independent functions (tape copy and compare), and a label printer port will be available. Device performance is 1.5 MB/sec. The 9427 is available in black or white.

Tape cartridge capacity is 7GB and sustained data transfer rate is 500KBps. Using Improved Data Recording Capability (IDRC), maximum tape cartridge capacity is up to 14GB, and effective data transfer rate is up to 1 MBps, depending on the type of data. Total 9427 capacity is up to 280GB.

The 9427 can be used for save/restore, program distribution, migration, data interchange, automatic migration of data between DASD and tape, and mass storage for data archive. Full interchange of data is supported with the 7208-002, 7208-012 and 7208-232 tape drives, and the AS/400 Advanced Series internal 7GB 8mm tape units, using the proper tape density and 7208-002/012 tape media.

Media is handled in two, ten-cartridge magazines, which can easily be added to or removed from the tape library. Each library has a bar-code reader used to inventory the library contents, and a display on the front panel that is used for status and error codes. Keys located next to the display are used for selecting operating options. The 9427 has a front door of clear plastic so that the robotics, drives and cartridge tapes can be seen while in operation. The door has a key-lock for security.

Neither the 7GB 8mm Cartridge Tape unit located in the AS/400 system unit, nor the 7208-222, can be migrated to a 9427.

The 9427 is attached to the AS/400 via the Removable Media Device Attachment (#2621), with a maximum of one 9427 per #2621. The Removable Media Device Attachment (#2621) has two SCSI ports. The 9427 can attach to the #2621 using one or two ports (two ports are required for maximum performance of the 9427). If the 9427 is attached using only one SCSI port, then the other SCSI port can be used to attach other devices. A feature is available to support attachment to two systems with random access to cartridges, tape mirroring, offline tape copy and compare, and a label printer port.

Backup,Recovery and Media Services/400 (5763-BR1) is recommended to support automation in tape handling, media management, and automatic migration of data between tape and DASD based on user defined policies. For those developing unique library applications, OS/400 provides a library command interface.

Battery backup is not part of the base unit, and an uninterruptible power system is recommended. Refer to the "New Device Support" section for more information.

Although not required for hardware service, IBM's ability to service the system is greatly enhanced when a voice telephone is available within view of the system. The telephone must not be connected to phone mail or an answering machine, since the ability to receive calls on this telephone is important in the event support personnel need to reach the customer engineer. This telephone line is in addition to any that may be installed to send or receive data through a communications line.

Software Requirements

IBM As/400 Advanced 36 requires the support of SSP Release 7.5 (5716-SSP). V3R6 OS/400 is optional.

Upgrade Specify Codes/Options

(#0203) Side by Side Install

This no-charge specify code is used to alert IBM service representatives of the intention to install a new system concurrently with an existing system, and over time, move applications to the new system. This method may be used when adding a system to an existing complex or network, or when a replaced system is being moved to another location. AS/400 Roadmap for Changing to PowerPC Technology (SA41-4150) describes this option in detail. IBM services are also available for a charge.

Alternate IPL Specify Codes

One of the following specify codes must be entered on the system order to describe which tape drive will be used for the alternate IPL device. The choice should match the type of media that was selected for software distribution.

(#2664) Integrated Fax Adapter

(For IBM US, No Longer Available as of December 31, 1999)

This feature provides the AS/400 with two ports capable of transmission and receipt of facsimile data to or from a Group 3 capable fax machine, another AS/400 with an Integrated Fax Adapter, or PCs with appropriately programmed fax adapters. Feature #2664 consists of a card, a wrap cable (one per machine), two country-unique attachment couplers, telephone cables and Licensed Internal Code.

The Integrated Fax Adapter is supported by the Facsimile Support/400* Licensed Program Offering that, until now, supported only the PS/2 LAN-based facsimile product. This program provides configuration parameters for the Integrated Fax Adapter, schedules fax transmissions between multiple adapters, and manages sending and receiving faxes to and from the adapter.

The Integrated Fax Adapter can simultaneously support two send, two receive, or one send and one receive operation. To the AS/400, the Integrated Fax Adapter appears as an IPDS* (Intelligent Printer Data Stream) printer for outbound faxes. Most output, including text, image, graphics and bar codes that can be printed on an AS/400 IPDS printer can be faxed via the Integrated Fax Adapter. Double byte character sets (DBCS) are supported for in-bound faxes, but not for out-bound faxes.

Documents transmitted from the AS/400 through the Integrated Fax Adapter are limited to a maximum of approximately 30 text pages per port, per phone call. If only a single port is configured for sending fax documents, then the limit is raised to approximately 60 text pages. Resident cover pages are counted against this limit.

The Integrated Fax Adapter is designed to be directly attached to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). Attachment to a Private Branch Exchange (PBX) may give unsatisfactory results.

Feature #2664 supports the facsimile protocols defined in CCITT Blue Book Volume VII, Fasicle VII.3 Recommendations T.4 and T.30.

Feature #2664 supports the following compression algorithms in fax mode:

  • Group 3 MR
  • Group 3 MH

Feature #2664 supports the following modem standards:

  • V.21 ch2 (300bps)
  • V.27 ter (2400, 4800bps)
  • V.29 (7200, 9600bps)

Availability of this feature in any particular country is dependent on homologation approval in that country. Two country-unique couplers and country-specific PSTN attachment cables (one for each port), are required. The couplers and cables are included with the Integrated Fax Adapter feature.

OS/400 Version 3 Release 6 and Facsimile Support/400 Version 3 Release 6 are required to support this feature.

(#2668) AS/400 Wireless LAN Adapter

The AS/400 Wireless LAN Adapter provides wireless connectivity from AS/400 systems to workstations or other systems connected to a wireless LAN network. With a wireless LAN connection, end-users can have roaming, portable access to the information they need, wherever they are, within the area of local wireless radio coverage. In addition, the AS/400 Wireless LAN Adapter may be the preferred solution in situations where wiring is expensive or impossible or where computing resource and device layouts change periodically. Support is provided for portable and stationary PCs, for specialized hand-held devices used for data collection, and for connections between AS/400 systems.

The AS/400 Wireless LAN Adapter uses an advanced technology, direct sequence, spread-spectrum radio operating in the 2.4 to 2.4835GHz band. The operating band may be narrower in some countries to meet country regulations. Spread spectrum provides excellent resistance to interference from other radio frequency (RF) sources.

Availability of this feature in any particular country is dependent on current country radio frequency regulations and certification for use by the country.

Operation in the United States does not require a license from the Federal Communications Commission.

The AS/400 Wireless LAN Adapter comes with an antenna and a cable for connecting the antenna to the adapter. The area of coverage may be extended beyond the coverage provided by the antenna attached to the adapter by adding AS/400 Wireless LAN Access Points to the network via an unshielded twisted-pair wired backbone. In addition, access points may be connected without wires, acting as wireless repeaters. Each adapter or access point generates one cell of coverage area. Networks are designed to create overlapping cells to ensure consistent coverage of the area desired. The AS/400 Wireless LAN Adapter allows transparent seamless movement from cell to cell while maintaining a continuous host session. A site survey by trained professionals is recommended to assist in network design.

The AS/400 Wireless LAN Adapter operates with existing application software interfaces. Existing 5250 and LAN-oriented applications can use the AS/400 Wireless LAN Adapter without change.

The AS/400 Wireless LAN Adapter supports the 2480 family of AS/400 wireless LAN and data collection devices. This family of devices provides comprehensive connectivity solutions for attaching personal computers and data collection devices to the AS/400 in a mobile, wireless fashion. 248X Portable Transaction Computers connected to the AS/400 Wireless LAN adapter support wireless bar code scanning applications popular in retail, distribution, and manufacturing environments.

In addition to the AS/400 Wireless LAN Adapter, the following 2480 AS/400 wireless LAN devices are available from IBM:
