The AS4 communication protocol was introduced to the market in 2013 and is based on OASIS ebMS3.0, which provides a web services based method to exchange B2B transactions with trading partners. OpenText’s AS4 service has achieved certification with Drummond Group and supports the requirements of the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Gas (ENTSOG) profile. The European energy sector is one of the first industries to adopt AS4 as a standard method of communication between trading partners.
