OFTP, the Odette File Transfer Protocol, is a standardized protocol for secure data exchange between companies. Originally developed by Odette International, it is mainly - but not exclusively - used in the automotive industry. OFTP provides encryption, authentication and file integrity functions, and enables receipt confirmations to ensure that data has been received correctly. This allows companies to effectively automate their data transfer and integrate it into their operations.
The Module OFTP extends !MC5 with the ability to transfer any data via OFTP over unencrypted TCP/IP or ISDN connections. Such unencrypted connections are primarily used in closed networks like ENX, the communication network of the European automotive industry. Nevertheless, the Module OFTP is compatible with OFTP version 2 and supports all security features of this version. !MC5s OFTP2 implementation is certified by Odette International. For encrypted data transfers via the Internet, the Module OFTP2 is required.
With the Module OFTP, data can be easily sent and received via OFTP with any number of partners, from large CAD files to small EDI files. The scope of delivery includes either an OFTP/ISDN channel or an OFTP/TCP channel. In addition, the Module OFTP can be extended with the Add-On ENGDAT and the Add-On ENGPART to include tools for easier transfer of design data. The Module EDI also enables smooth integration with your company's own EDI systems.
