In the framework of the continuous evolution of its trainborne ERTMS platform, Alstom has developed a new communication board supporting several protocols. After a make or buy study, Alstom decided to trust ERTMS Solutions and its COTS version of the FFFIS EuroRadio Library, to integrate in this new board.
Gilles Gallet, Software Architect, Alstom Transport: the main challenge for Alstom was to cut to the minimum the development, testing and maintenance costs of this board. For that purpose, integrating a COTS software library, already proven in the field, is a key asset. The integration of ERTMS Solutions software package has started in September 2013, with successful results so far. We are very happy with the quality of the software and documentation, as well as the very responsive technical support offered by ERTMS Solutions.
Stanislas Pinte, Managing Director, ERTMS Solutions: We are really happy to be able to contribute to Alstom ERTMS products evolution in an efficient way, and even more happy of the positive feedback we received from Alstom, starting from day 1.
