Galaxy Gateway Services

We have delivered PEPPOL infrastructure since 2012. All services are developed entirely by Tickstar’s engineers and are completely cloud based, thus removing the technical complexity of self-hosted software.

The access point is your bridge to PEPPOL. It enables secure exchange of messages with other access points. 

  • Using our services you will be able to go to market as a PEPPOL Access Point provider
  • Since Tickstar is a recognized PEPPOL infrastructure provider, the mandated OpenPEPPOL technical tests of your Access Point is not necessary.
  • Your Access Point instance is always fully PEPPOL compliant
  • Extensive error handling
  • Improvements compared with OpenPEPPOL specifications and Open Source options
  • Predictable running cost with flat rate fees
  • Hosting included
  • 24/7/365 monitoring of your Access Point instance
  • SLA
  • Friendly and knowledgeable support from our engineers

The SMP (service metadata publisher)  stores your PEPPOL receivers’ metadata.

Prior to sending a file to a receiver, the sending Access Point queries the SML (service metadata locator) to find out which SMP that holds the receiver’s metadata. The sending AP is then redirected to the receiver’s SMP from which it gets necessary details to transfer the file to the receiving Access Point.

This discovery mechanism – the interaction between Access Points, the SML and SMPs within the network – is a true beauty of PEPPOL. 

By having your own SMP for your PEPPOL receivers you are in full control of how they are managed.

Please be reminded that the SMP of Galaxy Gateway does not interact with the SMK (the test SML environment).
