An IBM 3101 terminal.

IBM looms large as a dominant player in the era of mainframe computing. From the 1960's on its systems were the most successful, most widely sold and most widely imitated systems in the industry. The distinctive green phosphor screens used on the 3270 in particular lead to the dumb terminals in general and, much later, terminal emulation software being broadly referred to as 'green screens'.

Coverage in for IBM host systems across the Turbosoft range of solutions is second to none. We have an extensive range of emulations which provide access to both IBM Mainframe and Midrange systems. Emulations are provided for 3270, 5250, 3164, 3101 and 3151 terminals.

Our support for 3270 communications does not just include the standard TN3270 but also a number of different 3270 emulation modes such as the color IBM 3279 or monochrome IBM 3278 terminals, (models 2,3,4 and 5) and additional support for 3278 printing, 3270 emulation via SNA communications and extended attributes.

In the IBM midrange arena, Turbosoft offers a range of 5250 emulation modes that you can choose from ensuring that the emulation you select is accurate, functional and most importantly, the exact terminal your system requires. In addition to this we support printing for the 5250 (3812)

In the IBM AIX world, we offer an IBM 3101 emulation, IBM 3151 emulation and an IBM 3164 emulation (color terminal).

What Turbosoft products offer for IBM terminal emulation

TTWin 4 supports 3270, 5250, 3101, 3151 and 3164 color emulation over both SNA and TCP. IND$FILE file transfer is also supported.

Our web deployable terminal emulator TTerm Connect and our offering for handhelds and phones powered by Window CE or Mobility, TTWinCE both offer 3270, 5250, 3101, 3151 and 3164 color support over TCP. Running with zero client install and fully remotely configurable, TTerm Connect offers a lightweight and low-maintenance emulation solution for distributed workforces.

Emulators for IBM terminals are available for iPad® through our TTerm apps.

Regardless of your platform of choice, choosing Turbosoft for your business can help to boost productivity and efficiency. With three decades of experience in emulation, we understand the challenges facing organizations looking to bridge the gap between their legacy IBM mainframes and host systems and their existing IT. Features such as multi-session functionality and a tabbed user interface allow more rapid, frustration-free multi-tasking, while scripting, hotspot and macro functionality automate repetitive tasks and complex command inputs, speeding up otherwise lengthy and time-consuming tasks.

Leveraging the expertise of leading emulator software developers, Turbosoft delivers a precise, accurate emulation experience for a range of IBM terminals, ensuring seamless operation of your host system. Ongoing maintenance packages allow rapid access to accurate support from our experienced staff, helping you realize the full value of your legacy system.
