Niederaula, 21 September 2017 — When Deutsche Telekom switches off all remaining ISDN connections at the beginning of 2018, structural changes will be required in many companies. “Companies that have not yet switched to an All-IP technology will no longer be able to use numerous central applications from this time period on,” explains Benjamin Isak, team leader of EDI development at active logistics. This does not only include telephone systems: the technology is also used in many large companies for the safe data exchange between computer systems. “This is especially true for the transmission of sensitive data, such as billing information to recipients outside their own company,” says Benjamin Isak. This is based on the so-called OFTP1 standard from 1986. With the timely conversion to the completely IP-based technical successor OFTP2, companies can avoid possible downtime and do not have to forgo the usual level of security. To this end, the IT managers from active logistics advise their customers in detail in order to provide them with the appropriate solution: Depending on requirements, this includes, in addition to the technical conversion and data conversion, the examination and correction of data. This ensures for example that address data are always up-to-date. “Our customers in this area also include some DAX companies and large pharmaceutical companies,” emphasizes Benjamin Isak. “We have already implemented the conversion to All-IP technology and other services for seven well-known automotive manufacturers in Germany.”
