EuroFile transfer (EFT)

EuroFile Transfer(EFT) is a file transfer protocol standardized by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute( ETSI) under ETS 300 075 for vendor- and system-neutral file transfer.

The EuroFile Transfer Protocol, which was initiated by the European ISDN user association EIUF (European ISDN User Forum), provides a uniform and system-neutral protocol for realizing open data transfer in ISDN in addition to another file transfer standard in the form of File Transfer Access and Management( FTAM).

File transfer in the EFT protocol normally takes place at 64 kbit/s, corresponding to the transfer rate of a B channel. Since the EFT protocol supports channel bundling and can compress the data according to V.42bis, maximum data rates of up to 300 kbit/s are achieved.
