What is RosettaNet?
RosettaNet is a consortium of major Computer and Consumer Electronics, Electronic Components, Semi-conductor Manufacturing, Telecommunications and Logistics companies working to create and implement industry-wide, open e-business process standards. The RosettaNet standard is based on XML and defines message guidelines, interfaces for business processes and implementation frameworks for interactions between companies. The supply chain area is mostly addressed, but manufacturing, product and material data and service processes are also in scope.
RosettaNet also has a unique protocol to communicate these standard files. It is a special network connection that users of RosettaNet files can leverage to send files back and forth. Setup and communication is handled by URLs that are set to unique RosettaNet enabled locations.
