NORCROSS, Ga., Nov. 24, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EasyLink Services International Corporation ("EasyLink" or "Company") (Nasdaq:ESIC) (), a global provider of comprehensive messaging services and e-commerce solutions, today announced its compliance with the Odette File Transfer Protocol 2 (OFTP2), an Internet-based communications standard used primarily in the automotive, engineering and transportation industries. OFTP2 provides companies with a standardized data exchange, the ability to transmit large data files and improved file handling capabilities, support for extended character sets and a bridge between the old ISDN connections used with OFTP, and secure internet connectivity with security certificates.
The move to a secure, cloud-based service is a key driver for manufacturers and suppliers to migrate to OFTP2. With automotive and related industries operating globally, OFTP2 enables trading partners to use the same solution anywhere in the world, with any type of trading partner, from local suppliers to multinational companies.
Clive Jefferies, Vice President of Sales EMEA at EasyLink adds, "We are enthusiastic that EasyLink has added OFTP2 capabilities to its network. We expect to see many more companies standardize on the updated protocol to improve company-wide profitability and efficiency."
