Abstract

Planning for Fiber Optic Links (GA23-1408-04)

Content

This publication provides information that can be used to plan for IBM Fiber Optic Links. It includes coupling facility links, Open Systems Adapter (OSA), zHyperLink Express, and Fiber Connection (FICON), which is IBM's implementation of the ANSI Fibre Channel Standard with additional support for multiple-mode fibers. Although it contains general information relating to fiber optic cables, components, and optical fiber data processing environments, it includes only what is supported for these fiber optic links.
