What does FTAM mean?

FTAM, ISO standard 8571, is the OSI Application layer protocol for File Transfer Access and Management. The goal of FTAM is to combine into a single protocol both file transfer, similar in concept to the Internet FTP, as well as remote access to open files, similar to NFS. However, like the other OSI protocols, FTAM has not been widely adopted, and the TCP/IP based Internet has become the dominant global network. The FTAM protocol was used in the German banking sector to transfer clearing information. The Banking Communication Standard over FTAM access was standardized in the DFÜ-Abkommen enacted in Germany on 15 March 1995. The BCS-FTAM transmission protocol was supposed to be replaced by the Electronic Banking Internet Communication Standard in 2010. The obligatory support for BCS over FTAM was to cease on 31 December 2010. RFC 1415 provides an FTP-FTAM gateway specification but attempts to define an Internet-scale file transfer protocol have instead focused on Server message block, NFS or Andrew File System as models.
