New ACP127 Gateway

The newly released ACP127 Gateway for IRIS Organisational Messaging has greatly improved the tolerance for handling ACP127 messages with deviations from the standard. Moreover, it simplifies deployment and ensures support for the latest versions of Microsoft Exchange.

Wednesday, November 12, 2014

Exchanging ACP127 messages in a coalition network can cause great frustration as many messages do not follow the standard correctly. Often this is caused by human mistakes in manually created messages or by wrongly interpretations of the standard in the coalition partners’ systems. Previously such erroneous messages were rejected by IRIS Organisation Messaging, which left the COMMS staff as major bottle necks correcting messages before sending it into the distribution flow in IRIS Organisational Messaging. With the new ACP127 Gateway all that is required to allow the message into the distribution flow is that Originator and Body Text can be recognized. Deviations in other parts of the message will be clearly highlighted to the operational user when the message is opened in Outlook.

Simplified deployment

The installation and configuration of the new ACP127 Gateway now only require a few simple steps to get up running. Most of the configuration can actually be prepared in advance by a technical expert, which makes it possible for less trained personnel to do the actual installation.

Enhanced support

Previously the ACP127 Gateway only supported Microsoft Exchange 2003. With the new ACP127 Gateway there is now also support for Microsoft Exchange 2010 and 2013.


The new ACP127 Gateway is available to all IRIS Organisational Messaging maintenance customers. Please contact for information on how to get access to the software or for any questions in general to the ACP127 Gateway.
