Need to easily and securely transfer large files?
JP1/Data Highway securely sends large files at high speeds over the internet
You can send multiple video files, backed-up data files, and more at the same time, even when each of the files is several hundred gigabytes in size. Large files can be transferred very efficiently because you do not need to split them. File transfers are secured by means such as restricting the people who can receive the files and by encrypting transmission routes (by using HTTPS) to prevent eavesdropping. Furthermore, you can configure settings to require administrator approval for file transfers. This helps prevent unintended or incorrect file transfers. Because file transfers are performed via a web browser and thus do not require a dedicated line or special hardware, JP1/Data Highway can be introduced quickly and inexpensively.
Division multiplexing (a process by which data is automatically split into smaller units to be transferred simultaneously, and is then restored on the receiving device) can be used to send huge files, such as CAD files and video files, at high speeds and without sacrificing quality. If a file transfer fails, you need to resend only the data that failed to be sent (ensuring that there is no duplicated or missing data), minimizing transfer time and costs. For more efficient transfers, you can you can select a folder, instead of individual files, to send all of the files in that folder in a single operation. With JP1/Data Highway, you can flexibly operate and adjust file transfers (for example, by temporarily pausing and then resuming transfers in progress) to fit your schedule and needs.
By specifying multiple recipients as a group, you can send files to those recipients at the same time, which is far more efficient than having to send files to each recipient individually. Even after initiating batch file transfers of this kind, you can still pause or cancel the transfer for individual recipients. Furthermore, by using commands to control the transmission bandwidth for each transfer or recipient, you can achieve flexible transfer operations that account for the network environment of each recipient.
Because JP1/Data Highway uses internet connections and web browsers, you do not need any dedicated lines or special hardware or software. Moreover, files are sent via HTTPS, so you do not need to change your firewall settings or the settings of existing network devices, making JP1/Data Highway easy to install.
Encrypting transmission routes (by using HTTPS) protects file as they are being transferred. Settings are also available to prohibit files from being sent to recipients outside of a specified list or to require approval before files can be sent. These features help to prevent important information from being sent by mistake or used for unintended purposes. JP1/Data Highway allows you to log information about each transfer, such as the date and time of the transfer, the content, the sender, and the recipients. You can check this log later as necessary.
Based on IP addresses or electronic certificates, you can prevent access by unauthorized persons or from unapproved locations.
By using individual commands for sending and receiving data, you can set up automated file transfers that are executed according to a set schedule or in conjunction with your business systems. Automating file transfers lowers costs and eliminates operator error to help ensure that the necessary files are sent. You can automate file transfers by using JP1/Data Highway commands or by linking JP1/Data Highway with JP1/Automatic Job Management System 3 (the JP1 task automation product).
Example configuration of automated operations
When you want to send a file via multiple servers that manage data transmissions, you only need to upload the file to a single server. The file is then copied to other servers as necessary. Even when the same files are to be sent to many recipients, JP1/Data Highway ensures that you only need to upload the files once, making your work more efficient.
