Is your OFTP2 Software up to date?
OFTP2 was developed to
satisfy the specific communications requirements of the global automotive
industry and is the most widely used protocol for the exchange of mission
critical automotive data. It enables flawless and secure transmission between
companies across the public internet, avoiding the need to set up expensive VPN
connections with business partners and ensuring that confidential and sensitive
information is transmitted quickly and in complete security. Available for more
than 10 years, there are now thousands of implementations across the world.
To ensure that the protocol continues to meet current business requirements and remains secure, it is constantly reviewed by the Odette OFTP2 Experts Group which brings together la crème de la crème of communication and security software experts in the industry. The activities and the spirit of collaboration of the members of the OFTP2 EG have been vital in achieving its amazing global success by ensuring that the software continues to be at the forefront of technology.
The success of the protocol has resulted in an increasing number of OFTP2 software packages entering the market across the world. To ensure that these different software packages respect the Odette specification and can communicate successfully with each other, Odette operates an OFTP2 Software Interoperability Testing Service. Only products that pass all Odette Test Cases successfully can be included in the [Odette list of tested products].
The OFTP2 Experts Group have made several updates to the OFTP2 Implementation Guidelines over the recent past and in order to maintain the high quality of OFTP2 software expected by our industry and verify that correct implementation has been maintained, it was decided to re-test all the originally listed products.
We are delighted to report that the products from the following providers have successfully passed the new tests:
arcESB, Aventum, Axway, Bartsch, c-works, Cedex, Cleo, Compacer, DAL, Data Interchange, EDICOM, FIS, HUENGSBERG, i-effect, ICDSC, Inposia, Jscape, Lobster, Osis, Numlog, Rocket, SAP, Seeburger, Softzoll, SSC, T-Systems, TX2 Concept, Xware
