This IBM® Redpaper is one in a series describing System z™ qualified optical Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) vendor products for GDPS® solutions with Server Time Protocol (STP). The products that we describe in this series are also the IBM supported solutions for non-GDPS applications. Non-GDPS applications include the protocols that are needed for cross-site connectivity of a multi-site Parallel Sysplex® or one of the remote copy technologies that we describe in this paper. GDPS qualification testing is carried out at the IBM Vendor Solutions Connectivity (VSC) Lab in Poughkeepsie, NY, U. S.
IBM and Adva Optical Networking have successfully completed qualification testing of the Adva Fiber Service Platform 2000 (FSP 2000). This paper describes the applicable environments, protocols, and topologies that are qualified and supported by System z for connecting to the Adva FSP 2000 product hardware and software at release level 6.2.
