IBM z Systems Qualified DWDM: Ciena 6500 Packet-Optical Platform Release 9.24

An IBM Redpaper publication

Abstract

This IBM® Redpaper™ publication is one in a series that describes IBM z Systems™ qualified dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) vendor products for IBM Geographically Dispersed Parallel Sysplex™ (IBM GDPS®) solutions with Server Time Protocol (STP). The protocols that are described in this paper are used for IBM supported solutions that require cross-site connectivity of a multisite Parallel Sysplex or remote copy technologies, which can include GDPS and non-GDPS applications. GDPS qualification testing is conducted at the IBM Vendor Solutions Connectivity (VSC) Lab in Poughkeepsie, NY.

IBM and Ciena successfully completed qualification testing of the 6500 Packet-Optical platform. This paper describes the applicable environments, protocols, and topologies that are qualified and supported by IBM z Systems for connecting through the 6500 Packet-Optical Platform Release 9.24 hardware and software.
