Axway Interchange is a high-performance and highly scalable gateway built on an open, Java-based architecture. Designed for event-driven and real-time communications and file exchange, Interchange enables you to use the Internet to establish an online trading community that reliably and securely connects your enterprise with all of your suppliers, partners, distributors, banks, and service providers across private or public marketplaces of any size.
With Interchange, you and your partners have the freedom to choose the best combination of standards and formats – including a wide range of B2B messaging protocols such as EDIINT AS2, ebXML ebMS, OFTP, and managed file transfer with PeSIT support – for your respective environments, applications and business processes. This capability translates into a powerful B2B Gateway that will always be flexible and adaptable enough to accommodate the needs and preferences of your current and future trading partners, while at the same time leveraging your existing investments and processes.
Especially well suited for simplifying B2B communities requiring enriched standards such as EDIINT (AS1, AS2 and AS3), ebXML ebMS, OFTP, Web Services and RosettaNet RNIF, Axway Interchange provides a secure, scalable and easy-to-manage B2B gateway that can extend your business processes beyond your four walls.

- There are no limits on document size.
Integration and interoperability
- For all standard B2B document structures, Interchange enables content-based routing, including user-friendly configuration and subsequent audit of transactions that leverage document header content.
- For flexible application integration, Interchange supports AxwayTransfer CFT, as well as a large set of middleware options such as JMS, WebSphere MQ, and Web Services to connect to a wide range of applications.

Axway Transfer CFT supports the PeSIT protocol, and when used with Axway Interchange creates a highly secure, automated communication gateway for partners that use PeSIT. Also works for A2A PeSIT exchanges, handling flows between applications.
