ComputerLab ET2000 Ethernet Terminal

The CLI ET2000 Ethernet terminal addresses today's conversion of Systems from Twinax/Coax to Ethernet & TCP/IP networks where simple, cost effective, functional solutions are required to address character based terminal requirements.

Most IT organizations require central system administration of devices, no per seat license costs, extensive keyboard selection based on the user application and printer support. The ET2000 offers an answer to these requirements for the AS/400, 3270 mainframe, RS/6000 and open systems with one model terminal.

With no boot server, the terminal just turns on and connects up to four sessions to up to four different hosts using the TN5250e, TN3270e and VT100 protocols. TN5250e and TN3270 are new protocols which allow for each device to maintain a static, unique device name and provides printer support.

Cost savings for System applications can be obtained by avoiding IBM Network Station or PC's to provide user application support where a character based, terminal emulation sessions are required. The ET 2000 provides a compatible solution without complicated configurations, seat license cost or incompatible keyboard selections at the right cost to the customer.

The use of TCP/IP combined with the capability of flash update will allow users to maintain access to the latest features and firmware without interruption of service or additional cost.

New Connectivity
The CLI ET2000 Ethernet terminal is a true character-based terminal that supports Ethernet connectivity for your AS/400 and S390 Network. The ET2000 features low-cost, full-function Ethernet convenience. An active printer port provides a simple connection at a cost-effective price.

Simple Interface
Featuring TCP/IP and TN5250 or TN3270 protocols for AS/400 and S390 connectivity, ET2000 simplifies network connectivity management. By eliminating complicated boot servers, ET2000 powers on with a sign-on screen just like a twinax terminal. The IBM AS/400, and S390 Ethernet attachment interface provides a simple connection for your ET2000.

Hassle-Free Printing
ET2000 supports all SCS (twinax data stream) features. Unlike LPD, the printer connected to the ET2000 retains all the functionality as if it was connected to twinax.

User productivity is enhanced by eliminating any learning curve and costs associated with NC or PC products. Centralized management of individual units better utilizes support and help desk assets.

Cost Savings
Eliminates 5x94, and 3x74 remote controllers by using a inexpensive network router. You can also eliminate your SNA WAN and use TCP/IP thereby reducing communication costs. Plus, no seat license cost.

As with all of CLI's modular display stations, you select from a wide array of keyboard and monitor styles for individual application or user requirements.
