Can I use my existing Bus/Tag to ESCON converter (Optica 34600 or IBM 9034) with Prizm?
No. The existing Bus/Tag converters operate only on CVC or CBY CHPID types. Prizm converts native FICON to native ESCON (CHPID type CNC). Thus in order to attach a Bus/Tag device to Prizm, a different converter technology is required that supports attachment to the CNC CHPID type produced by Prizm. The ESBT was designed specifically for this application.
