Centralize all the company data exchanges

Just as Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and external network security, the optimization of internal and external communication processes is a key factor in the development of companies. TBT400 is a unique and competitive tool for managing and monitoring large volumes of daily transactions, whatever standards these transfers need to comply with. TBT400 allows:

  • Control of processing costs (business logic and IT architecture are preserved, without any need for extra hardware and/or software in between partners),
  • Speed and responsiveness (data transfers are automated and monitored from end-to-end),
  • Security and regulatory compliance (the software is always adapting to new standards of communication).

Business-dedicated protocols

Companies often have to use various communication protocols, depending on their field of activity and the requirements of their partners. This is where a multi-protocol software protocol such as TBT400 really fits in…

FTP (File Transfer Protocol): for sharing and managing files between machines on the same TCP/IP network, this widespread standard requires a specific client.

SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol): this communication protocol secures the transfer of files over TCP/IP, using the Secure Shell technology and its encryption keys.

SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol): commonly used to exchange emails, this protocol is increasingly used within EDI networks.

Fax, Telex: these protocols are still in service today. These protocols can now be used over the internet without necessarily having the associated physical infrastructure (fax machines, dedicated telephone lines…).

AS2 (Applicability Statement 2)is based on the use of the HTTP (S) Protocol and the S/MIME standard. It allows to transport data (associated with the EDI or not) safely via any internet connection (using digital certificates and encryption).

X400 is an e-mail communication standard, often used in EDI. It allows communication over X 25 or TCP/IP networks with all compatible servers (ATLAS 400, ALLEGRO...), more specifically for certain private messaging systems.

ATLAS 400 is a value added network using the X 400 standard, and marketed by TRANSPAC. It allows the transmission and reception of messages or files to ATLAS 400 individual subscribers as well as to other compatible private X 400 servers, Telex or fax terminals, in France and other countries.

EBICS (Electronic Banking Internet Communication Standard) is used for secure exchanges with banks, in replacement of the older protocol ETEBAC. EBICS is an IP protocol, and uses XML messages conveyed by HTTPS.

PeSIT (Protocole d’Échanges pour un Système Interbancaire de Télécompensation), originally designed for the connection of French banking processing centers to the SIT network, incorporates sophisticated compression and recovery mechanisms, that were commonly used in X25 environments. PeSIT is also available on TCP/IP networks.

OFTP (Odette File Transfer Protocol) is a file transfer protocol for that gives access to many Added Value Networks (GEIS/GXS, IBM GN-ex IN, etc.), mainly used in the automotive world. Available for X 25, ENX/ANX and TCP/IP networks, OFTP is used by many Member States of the ODETTE Organization.

ENX is an extranet dedicated to the automotive sector and is governed by an association of the same name (European Network Exchange). ENX is used to convey CAD and EDI files from a single access point, thus guaranteeing the secure exchange of development, production and logistic data.
