Browser-Based 3270 Terminal Emulation: A Tale of Two Architectures
Webinar recorded November 2017: Presenter is Patrick Fournier from SysperTec Communication. Patrick talks specifically about the best 3270 Terminal Emulation (TE) architecture option and why there is a difference between these solutions.
The agenda for this webinar is as follows: Presentation explaining the two different browser-based 3270 TE architectures. The case for thin-client (browser-based) 3270 TE instead of the alternative. The advantages to choosing the thin-client, browser-based option (VWA) are also presented.

The Future of 3270 Terminal Emulation
Webinar recorded November 2017: Presenters include Bob Thomas from Enterprise Systems Media and Patrick Fournier from SysperTec Communication. Bob Thomas will present the results from the latest survey, 2017 State of 3270 Terminal Emulation.
Along with the survey, Patrick will present a case for thin-client (browser-based) 3270 terminal emulation. He will discuss how it works, including security features, performance, and efficiency, and share with you his case studies. Patrick will look at the future of 3270 terminal emulation. What are the benefits? What about cloud migration and thin-client migration? See the future of 3270 TE client workstations. Deploying maintenance, updates, new releases/versions, is all done from z/OS.
Virtel Web Access, a secure alternative to client-based TN3270 emulation which relies on sound security principles and on a host-centric, thin-client, browser-based architecture that keeps the control of access to host assets squarely where it belongs: on the host. Resolving issues with legacy TN3270 emulators: client applets, middle-tier servers, Java components, support requirements, security concerns, compliance requirements.

Ultra-Thin and Ultra-Secure: The Future of 3270 Client Workstations – hosted by SHARE
Webinar recorded July 2017: In 2016, Fraikin – the European leader in Commercial Vehicle Fleet services – decided to get out of the mainframe client workstation business altogether by replacing the 1,500 Windows PC workstations used to access their mainframe applications with minimalist Chrome-based devices from which desktop and mainframe applications are accessed in the Cloud.
Besides meeting its ambitious multimedia enabling and cost savings objectives, this Enterprise-wide Virtual Device Infrastructure (VDI) initiative resulted in the design of an ultra-thin and ultra-secure 3270 TE client workstation – one with drastically reduced and simplified support requirements, and with unparalleled mobility and flexibility. Come and see the future of 3270 TE client workstations.
