EDX – ENTSO-E Data Exchange

EDX is an additional and optional extension of ECP.

EDX is the communication platform for OPDE applications. It creates a distributed service platform where both service providers and consumers are connected via a state-of-the-art communication platform. It allows using additional integration channels for messaging. While ECP uses a fixed set of integration channels, EDX allows using (S)FTP, FSSP, MADES, SCP, or Web Services (e.g.: IEC 62325-504).

EDX also allows the implementation of new integration channels easily. It creates the basis for the OPDE platform and other ENTSO-E applications in the future that require reliable and secure communication.

EDX contains two components :

  • The client component - EDX Toolbox
  • The service provider component - EDX Service Catalogue
