JP1 Version 12 Job Management: Getting Started (High-speed Transfer of Huge Files)


Organization of this preface

■ What you can do with JP1/Data Highway - Server

Business environments now span multiple countries: for example, between Japan and countries in Asia, Europe, and America. With companies sending an increasing amount of data across national borders each year, the ability to reliably send large amounts of data at high speeds can open up business opportunities.

Challenges also exist. For example, data leakage due to erroneous transmission has become a serious problem. Security measures are increasingly important, but cost reduction also needs to be focused on to strengthen company competitiveness.

In addition to sending data safely by using SSL communications, JP1/Data Highway - Server (hereafter called JP1/DH - Server) is able to send large amounts of data at high speed, using various security measures. Costs can be reduced because this product uses the Internet and web browsers which you are already using.


JP1/DH - Server provides various windows and provides wide support for the process, from operation preparation to starting the operation and onward.
