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 OFTP2 extends !MC5 with the ability to transfer any data via OFTP2 over encrypted connections over the Internet. The Module OFTP2 supports all protocol versions up to the latest OFTP version 2 and supports all security features of this version as well as the automatic certificate exchange (ACX) and the transfer of partner data via XML (PDX). !MC5s OFTP2 implementation is certified by Odette International. For unencrypted data transfers over closed networks such as the ENX network, the Module OFTP is required.
With the Module OFTP2, data with any number of partners can be easily sent and received via OFTP2, from large CAD files to small EDI files. An OFTP2 channel is included in the scope of delivery. In addition, the Module OFTP2 can be extended with the Add-Ons ENGDAT and ENGPART to include tools for easier transfer of design data. The Module EDI also enables smooth integration into your company's own EDI systems.
