(businesspress24) - Berlin/Brussels, 16 May 2018 to champion the introduction of international standards alongside other industry representatives.

The ITxPT Association established at UITP pursues the aim of standardising IT solutions for public passenger transportation at the European level. IVU was previously involved in developing the IT-based standard IBIS-IP for a digital, integrated on-board information system starting in 2010 under the auspices of the VDV, with the aim of phasing out the existing, mostly proprietary IP solutions of different manufacturers. In view of the considerable similarity between IBIS-IP and ITxPT, IVU now intends to push for a merging of the two standards.

By codifying communication protocols and hardware interfaces in depth, the ITxPT standard makes differing IT systems fully compatible, thereby reducing the degree of risk encountered in the tendering, project planning and implementation of IT solutions for public transport. Moreover, members of the association share experiences and best practices in various work groups and work together on a standardisation strategy.
