Cisco has extended its IBM networking programme with a new Enterprise Associates scheme for third parties.
The programme is open to companies providing networking and software tools for SNA-to-IP connectivity. The first members include Attachmate and Wall Data with their PC client access products; Interlink, which develops TCP/IP protocols for MVS mainframes; and Microsoft with SNA Server.
As well as joint promotions and marketing initiatives, members can test their products alongside Cisco's and could receive help from the networking giant on code development.
Cisco has also launched a range of mainframe connectivity products including Cisco Database Connection, which provides access to DB2 databases from end users at TCP/IP workstations; OC://Web Connect Pro, for print, copy and file transfer; and TN3270 Server, which enables users to set TCP/IP precedents.
