FILEBOX is a platform-independent data transfer system for print and media businesses.

The FILEBOX concept intelligently summarises the benefits and options of all the usual data transfer methods (ISDN, FTP, E-MAIL, FAX, und HTTP (internet based)) in a comfortable and platform-independent product.

In order to use the system, you will only require a DSL internet connection and an internet browser. Your customers can continue to use the usual data transfer options.

There is no unpleasant changeover for your customers or partners. However, your customers still have the chance to use the FILEBOX?s comfortable options for fast data transfer.

Conventional transfer of digital data:

Even in the age of digital communication, large amounts of data are still being delivered by couriers. This method is relatively cost-intensive and requires a lot of coordination and delivery agreements in order to exactly match the workflow.

ISDN is still being extensively used. For amounts of data from around 100MB it is, however, no longer suitable due to the technical limitations of 64kbit per channel or 128kbit with channel bundling. In the age of DSL, ISDN has become too slow and time intensive.

Some companies use E-mail for low-cost, internet-based data transfer. The transfer of larger amounts of data via E-mail, however, causes many problems:
? As a rule, the transfer limit lies at around 10MB
? The sender is often unsure due to the lack of an acknowledgement of receipt
? Corrupted data through transfer errors
? The receiver?s mailbox can be full

There is no real security concerning the receiving of data as error messages are issued hours or even days later. If you have masses of E-mail, it is also possible to overlook an E-mail or delete one by mistake.

The exchange of data via the FTP protocol is a sensible solution regarding the transfer speed issue. The application, however, is relatively complicated both for the sender and the receiver. The sender often has problems with the application of FTP clients, the configuration of the FTP server requires a lot of effort and a network specialist is required. In addition to this, job entry is just as confusing as with ISDN reception.
