Icomera's multimodal internet connectivity platform earns ITxPT label

Posted on February 22, 2019

Icomera, a subsidiary of ENGIE Ineo, earned the ITxPT (Information Technology for Public Transport) label for its multimodal mobile internet connectivity platform for public transport vehicles. ITxPT is a nonprofit organization open to companies and organizations sharing the interest in developing public transport into the most efficient, sustainable, and attractive way to travel.

Seamlessly deployable across trains, trams, coaches, buses, and ferries, the Icomera solution is built around open architecture principles, allowing for interoperability between different systems and devices. This is aligned with Icomera’s continued commitment to supporting the Connected City strategies of public transport operators and agencies, and of its parent company ENGIE.

ITxPT was formed in 2013 by IT suppliers, vehicle manufacturers, public transport operators and authorities, to develop an IT architecture based on agreed standards for digital communication on-board, over-the-air and to back-office/cloud services. Since then, the initiative has grown rapidly, both in terms of membership and reach: ITxPT compliance is increasingly becoming a requirement in public tenders. Having joined the association at the end of 2015, Icomera works as a Strategic Member on the executive board, developing standards for open IT architecture together with its ITxPT partners.

To achieve ITxPT labeling, several Icomera modules (along with the Module Inventory Service) passed rigorous testing at the ITxPT test bench in Paris. The Icomera VTC ICR-2, an Icomera Connectware Router deployed in bus markets, has been declared ITxPT compliant. The Icomera X³, aimed at coach and bus markets, and the Icomera X³ (rail), its sister product for the tram, metro, and train market, have also received the ITxPT label. All modules are now labeled in accordance with ITxPT specifications S01 v2.0.1 & S02 v2.0.
