AS/400 in Multiprotocol Networks

An IBM Redbooks publication


This document addresses the growing trend of
multiprotocol networks from an AS/400 perspective. The AS/400 is
found more and more in mixed protocol and system environments where
interoperability is a major requirement. As networking moves to
multiprotocol wide area backbones - supporting all the protocols
required by today's variety of applications and systems - the AS/400
is found communicating across these backbones.

This IBM Redbooks publication will help you to understand the concepts of
this new multiprotocol environment in which your AS/400 system resides,
and how easily the AS/400 fits in.

In an AS/400 dominated situation, understanding the concepts of
multiprotocol networking helps you decide what direction the backbone
should take, especially as the options available increase. This
book should help to meet these different needs.
