X.400 nahtlos mit BizTalk

QUIBIS X.400 WCF Adapter:

Seamlessly integrated X.400 communication directly from BizTalk Server

Many EDI transmissions between business partners are made on the basis of the X.400 Telebox system. As BizTalk Server does not natively support the X.400 protocol, third-party software is often used. However, this complicates the configuration of X.400 message transmission, as this is not possible to do within BizTalk. Furthermore, the further processing, for example, of the transmission protocol is not possible directly in BizTalk. 

For this reason, QUIBIQ developed the QUIBIS X.400 WCF Adapter for BizTalk Server:

  • completely integrated into BizTalk Server
  • configurable from the BizTalk Server
  • direct further processing of the transmission protocol (for error handling, archiving the proof of delivery, etc.)

QUIBIS X.400 makes the previously complex X.400 configuration in BizTalk Server entirely easy.

Complete support of the X.400 protocol

QUIBIS X.400 supports all P7 protocol functions. All Telebox settings can be easily configured in the send port, making the previously complex X.400 configuration process much simpler. The direct integration also allows for seamless integration into the BizTalk Server error handling.

Example project

REWE 'Für Sie' relies on QUIBIS X.400 

"Using QUIBIS X.400 considerably cut the administrative costs for the BizTalk EDI solution. Thanks to the seamless processing and provision of transmission protocols, the department can respond in a qualified way to queries."

Lars Weiler

The seamless integration of X.400 message communication into the EDI solution of RFS allows for the following scenario:

  • Step 1: ERP sends invoices to BizTalk Server for EDI processing
  • Step 2: BizTalk Server converts and batches these to an EDI message, which is sent directly via the QUIBIQ X.400 WCF Adapter to the Telebox of the partner.
  • Step 3: The adapter response with the X.400 transmission status is evaluated in BizTalk and the original EDI message is sent to the customer archive system.
  • Step 4: The BizTalk Server sends the Telebox transmission status of all invoices including an archive reference to the EDI file to ERP.
  • Step 5: The department can now themselves view the transmission status of all invoices and the original EDI message directly in ERP without having to leave ERP.
