The BARR/PRINT Channel FICON solution is a two PC/ Server solution. The Mainframe connects to the Print FICON Server via a FICON connection. A thin, flexible, fibre-optic FICON cable connects the adapter to the mainframe. Each interface on a FICON adapter is capable of supporting up to 16 CU images (LPARs) and 256 sub-channels (sessions).

Using the Barr FICON Input service solution you can receive jobs to the Barr HOST Communication Suite (BHCS) and then from there you can direct your jobs to existing network print queues on a LAN.
