active logistics have extended their product portfolio with the Odette File Transfer Protocol 2 (OFTP2) which is the further development of OFTP. By a SSL-encryption and the use of an official certificate of Odette a secure data transmission is provided. The use of ISDN or TCP/IP is also possible with OFTP2. Due to the planned change until 2018 from ISDN to All-IP on behalf of the Telekom we would recommend the use resp. the change to OFTP2 via TCP/IP. Profit from our experience which we have gained from numerous connections of customers of the automotive and supplier industry.
