Use NCI/XF to create a single point of entry for VTAM network systems. With it, you can customize, extend and develop a single point of entry — and deploy it across an enterprise with precision and confidence. Create any number of front-end network control interfaces (NCI) to communicate across VTAM networks through NCI/XF’s multi-host function.
Allow any number of front-end network control interfaces (NCI) to communicate across VTAM networks via the VTAM command language that includes a multi-host function. Communication to the network front end from any transaction in the network is provided by a transaction-level interface. Allow communication to any platform supporting APPC and TCP/IP protocols by using specific NCI/XF control commands.
Eliminate the need for Assembler Knowledge
Design and implement any function required across the network easily and quickly with the VTAM toolkit, eliminating the need to use or support Assembler.
Efficient 4GL command language
Gain greater efficiency with a NCI/XF VTAM toolkit that consists of a VTAM terminal control function, 3270 data stream manipulation via a dialog manager, and a powerful 4GL command language designed for the VTAM environment. A large number of users can access any application on any host from anywhere on the network.
Full error recovery
Connect with any supported terminal type, even when the terminal definition is incorrect, with the error recovery feature of NCI/XF. This useful when control units have to be moved and re-plugged, or whenever coaxial cable connections are incorrectly plugged in, resulting in the corresponding network definitions not being applied to VTAM (e.g. LOGMODE).
