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 described in this paper. GDPS qualification testing is carried out at the IBM Vendor Solutions Connectivity (VSC) Lab in Poughkeepsie, NY, U. S.
IBM and Nortel have successfully completed qualification testing of the Nortel Optical Metro 5200 Multiservice Platform. This paper describes the applicable environments, protocols, and topologies that are qualified and supported by System z for connecting to the Nortel Optical Metro 5200 product hardware and software at release level 10.0. This paper supersedes all previous versions.
