The flexibility of GDP EDI includes different ways of transfer:
AS2 data transfer has been developed specifically for e-commerce. The sender receives a digital return receipt MDN (Message Disposition Notification) from the AS2 protocol which is prove for a delivery in due time.
- HTTP(S) Post
Data is transferred via HTTP or HTTPS using the standard method “post”. The sender's clear identity is authenticated either with a certificate or with user name and password.
Data is transferred using the ftp protocol. If you run you own ftp server for data exchange, you can use it. Alternatively, GDP provides an ftp server.
- GDP EDI Client
The data is transferred from sender to recipient using a secure internet connection. The GDP EDI client is installed as a service on an existing windows infrastructure.
If your business partner can only send and receive data on an X.400 mailbox, GDP will provide it for you.
It data is transferred via GXS, you can continue using your GSX mailbox for sending and receiving data.
- OFTP2 via TCP/IP
After exchanging Odette IDs, which are issued by the automotive industry, EDI data can be exchanged in both directions.
