This IBM® Redpaper™ document is one in a series that describes IBM System z® qualified optical Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) vendor products for IBM Geographically Dispersed Parallel Sysplex™ (IBM GDPS®) solutions with Server Time Protocol (STP). The products described in this series are also the IBM supported solutions for applications that are not GDPS. Applications that are not GDPS include the protocols that are needed for cross-site connectivity of a multisite Parallel Sysplex or one of the remote copy technologies that are described in this paper. GDPS qualification testing is conducted at the IBM Vendor Solutions Connectivity (VSC) Lab in Poughkeepsie, NY.
