Applications for administrative purposes are hosted by the Northwest Regional Data Center through the mainframe CICS service. They can only be accessed through a HostExplorer session with an official NWRDC User ID.

Virtel Web Access is a 3270 Terminal Emulator that is a fully functional direct replacement for thick client solutions like Hummingbird, Host Explorer, Attachmate or PC-COM.
Virtel Web Access is offered at no additional cost. Thus enabling customers to save money by removing the need for costly thick clients and the ongoing maintenance and hardware upgrades that they require.
This product is particularly useful to customers who access the NWRDC mainframe on an occasional basis.
Any device that supports a modern browser and HTTPS can securely access the 3270 applications available on the NWRDC mainframe.
