Abstract: This white paper will discuss requirements for FIDR, review the basics of cascaded FICON, explain how the predecessor technology (static routing) works, and compare it with the new FICON Dynamic Routing mechanism. The paper will conclude with a discussion of design considerations and the possible use cases where implementing FICON Dynamic Routing will be of the most benefit to z Systems end users.
