This IBM® Redpaper™ publication is one in a series that describes IBM System z® qualified optical Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) vendor products for GeoDPS solutions with Server Time Protocol (STP). The products described in this series include the IBM supported solutions for applications that are not IBM Geographically Dispersed Parallel Sysplex™ (IBM 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 described in this paper. GDPS qualification testing is conducted at the IBM Vendor Solutions Connectivity (VSC) Lab in Poughkeepsie, NY.
IBM and ADVA AG Optical Networking successfully completed qualification testing of the ADVA FSP 3000 platform. This paper describes the applicable environments, protocols, and topologies that are qualified and supported by System z for connecting to the ADVA FSP 3000 platform hardware and software, Release 10.3.2.
This paper is intended for anyone who wants to learn more about ADVA FSP 3000 Release 10.3.2. This document is not meant to determine qualified products. To ensure that the planned products to be implemented are qualified, registered users can see the IBM Resource Link® library for current information about qualified WDM vendor products:
