The safe information highway for effective exchange of EDI
i-effect® *AS2 is the native solution for communication via AS2 on IBM Power Systems. The i-effect® *AS2 and *CRYPT modules provide all the advantages of
high-security internet communication.
The AS2 protocol (Applicability Statement 2) was developed to put electronic business communication using the internet on a most reliable and secure basis. AS2 is the best choice for exchanging business documents electronically. Based on HTTP
or HTTP/s and using well known features like standardized S/MIME attachments, this protocol is based on reliable already approved technology. It not only uses digital signatures and a high level of encryption to make it secure, it also has a build in acknowledgement feature using MDNs (message disposition notifications) that reliable state the success of an electronic data transfer. This non-repudiation feature build on an industry standard communication protocol made AS2 the most important communication protocol for electronic data interchange (EDI).
Secure and reliable business document communication
Within i-effect®, the AS2 implementation uses all features of the protocol. Messages are automatically acknowledged using synchronous or asynchronous MDNs and in case of a transfer abortion, files are resend within the AS2 subsystem.
Being a multi-threaded, high performance communication subsystem, i-effect® *AS2 can handled a large number of simultaneous in- and outbound communications. It is scalable with no limits where only available system resources define the intensity of parallel communications being available.
