I-O 5755e AFP/IPDS LAN Print Server

I-O 5755e AFP/IPDS - SCS Printer Gateway for AS/400 - iSeries & Mainframe - zSeries

High Speed Ethernet In / Ethernet Out
Host to LAN Printing

The I-O 5755e IPDS/SCS Printer Gateway is a high speed Ethernet-in, Ethernet-out AFP/IPDS - SCS gateway print server designed to convert native IBM host print jobs to PCL, allowing them to be printed by a laser printer on the LAN. Supporting up to three printers, the 5755e delivers IBM AFP/IPDS and SCS printing via TCP/IP, providing the control and printer feedback found in an IBM host environment.

Features Benefits
High Speed Printing, 100+ ppm The I-O 5755e takes advantage of high-speed, high-performance printers without the bottleneck of the parallel port.
AFP/IPDS printing over Ethernet Both AFP/IPDS and standard (SCS) host print jobs can be seamlessly printed over a LAN.
Enhanced Telnet 5250 (TN5250e)and Telnet 3270 (TN3270e) Communicates with the IBM Host using native TCP/IP.
True Print Complete Users are notified when the print job is finished taking the guess work out of printing.
Duplex Printing can be done on both sides of a page. The full functionality of a duplex printer can be utilized.
Page Offset Functions Provides more flexibility in page positioning with no need to modify host applications.
Supports over 100 AFP/IPDS Fonts There are more fonts to choose from than other AFP/IPDS interfaces.
On-board FLASH Memory Allows for field upgrades providing the latest new features from I-O.
Printer error reporting to the host Prevents loss of host print data by providing the same level of print status reporting as a twinax or coax printer.
Page range printing Permits users to print select page ranges from large documents and reports.
Off-loading of Data Conversion Eliminates unnecessary overhead by converting EBCDIC data to ASCII data directly on the I-O 5755e.
True IBM printer emulations Permits full-function host printing on the attached LAN printer.
Simultaneous, multi-host printing Maximizes printer utilization by supporting concurrent printing not only from the host but from Novell, Windows, OS/2, UNIX, etc.
10BaseT and 100BaseT Provides versatility in attaching to LANs at different speeds.
Auto configuration Installs in minutes.
Powerful RISC processor Takes advantage of the LAN printer's maximum print speed even when processing IBM Host jobs.
