Is it possible to connect Bus/Tag devices to FICON channels via Prizm?
Yes, as long as the B/T device is operating in BLOCK mode (i.e. currently attached to a CVC CHPID type), it can be connected to FICON channels via Prizm and ESBT. Devices operating in BYTE mode (requiring CHPID type CBY in an ESCON configuration) CANNOT be supported on FICON channels. The Optica solution of Prizm and ESBT will allow BLOCK mode B/T devices to connect to FICON.
