Part number or Program name PID number Charge metric IBM Intelligent Transportation 5725-D70 Resource Value Unit
Resource Value Unit (RVU)
RVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. RVU Proofs of Entitlement are based on the number of units of a specific resource used or managed by the program. Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements for the number of RVUs required for licensee's environment for the specific resources as specified in the program specific table. RVU entitlements are specific to the program and the type of resource and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with RVU entitlements of another program or resource. Refer to the program specific RVU table.
Passport Advantage for IBM Intelligent Transportation (5725-D70)
Part Program name and description number IBM Traffic Information Hub V1.0.1 Linux AF0CRML Multilingual Media Pack
Value unit pricing
The pricing for IBM Transportation Management System is based on Resource Value Units (RVUs). RVU scaling is a step-tiered model, meaning that each quantity tier must be multiplied by the scaling factor for that tier, and the RVU quantities for each tier added together to calculate the total RVU quantity. RVU quantities must be calculated separately for each chargeable component, and any fractional RVU totals are rounded up to the next whole number.
The resources used for the purpose of RVU calculation is the total number of Transportation Events accessed or managed by the Program per calendar month. A "Transportation Event" is an operational data feed event provided to the Program from any type of transportation related resource or item of value to be managed.
The following is used to calculate RVU requirements based on the number of Transportation Events within the system per calendar month.
Your IBM representative can provide additional assistance in understanding the scaling process.

|Statement of good security practices|
IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.

|IBM Electronic Services|
IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.
The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.
The Electronic Service Agent is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM . Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
