For connecting the emulators or your own applications we offer our own gateway product that additionally supports third-party emulations and applications that connect using Telnet or TNVIP.
For connecting Glink, third-party emulations and your own applications to Bull mainframe systems Gallagher & Robertson offer two unbeatable solutions.
