Unlike competitive solutions, Jazz/e doesn't require a PC or multiple diskette exchanges for installation. Answer a few simple questions from any locally connected terminal and you're done. And configuration information is available any time, even while on-line!

    Easy IP Connectivity  Jazz/e supports IP (Native IP/AnyNet to AS/400) as well as traditional SNA connections.

    Easy Compatibility  5294, 5394, 5494 or AnyNet/IP. Jazz/e connects 16 to 56 remote devices to an AS/400 using traditional SNA connections or MPTN/AnyNet across an Ethernet topology, giving you exceptional performance and productivity.

Easy, Fast Installation. 
    Jazz/e software is substantially pre-configured at the factory. Just select SNA or IP as your protocol of choice, and Jazz/e does the rest! In the 5494 mode, the Jazz/e will even auto-configure at the AS/400 further simplifying the installation and configuration process.
Easy, Automatic Configuration. 
    Jazz/e automatically detects the type of devices that are attached via twinax cabling or UTP, then builds the appropriate support (displays, printers and PCs with twinax emulation cards).

     To configure Jazz/e, simply enter the name of the appropriate S/3X or AS/400 and your controller IP address from an attached dumb workstation. You'll never need a PC!

Easy IP Connectivity. 
    To connect, just select SNA or IP as the protocol of choice. If you select IP, the Jazz/e controller knows that you want to use AnyNet, so the only information you need is the IP variables, such as the AnyNet addressing scheme of the target AS/400 and the assigned IP address of the Jazz/e controller.
Easy Compatibility. 
    Jazz/e delivers AnyNet/IP compatibility to almost any midrange environment. Jazz/e gives you a choice of 16, 28 or 56 device support, so you can choose the most cost-effective configuration to meet the needs of any remote location.
