The Broadcom Mainframe Product releases are built and maintained using standardized SMP/E packaging and installation procedures. This package includes error holddata, FIXCAT holddata, and product interoperability validation. PTFs that pass interoperability test criteria are designated as Broadcom Recommended Service (CARS). The products are installable using SMP/E JCL and Chorus Software Manager. Some products can also be installed using z/OSMF Deployments.
