Ensure continuity of your railway ecosystem with evolving software

Ensure continuity and increase resilience of your PIS with Televic GSP Software Services

Frequent updates reduce maintenance duration and risk and increase time on the tracks. Just like mechanical parts, software also requires regular maintenance, in the form of patches and updates. A maintained passenger information system (PIS), hosted in the Cloud, future-proofs your railway ecosystem. Find out how this plays out on site.

Do not let your systems gather dust

In the past, passenger information systems were often installed and then forgotten. Times are changing. New cybersecurity threats are constantly emerging, and passengers' demands for real-time data are increasing at a rapid pace. At the same time, maintenance costs should be kept to a manageable level. 

Letting your systems gather dust and not updating them for years can have major consequences:

  • financial losses: the costs of a successful cyberattack are huge, both financially and for your reputation
  • systems outdated beyond repair: systems that have been neglected for too long cannot always be fixed, possibly resulting in the need for a complete overhaul
  • dissatisfied travelers: up-to-date passenger information is essential for an enjoyable journey

“You should update your PIS regularly. LiveCoM Suite provides solutions to make your railway ecosystem future-proof”

Dynamic PIS can boost your railway ecosystem

“Switching from a static on-premise solution to an evolving passenger information system hosted in the Cloud, ensures continuity in an ever-changing world,” says Niels Bouten, product manager at Televic GSP.

“Today, you simply cannot afford to lag behind and you should update your PIS regularly. Our new offering provides solutions to make your railway ecosystem future-proof.”

With LiveCoM Suite, Televic GSP adopted a cloud-first strategy. This improves scalability, makes our systems more reliable and increases deployment speed. Cybersecurity services are included with LiveCoM Suite hosting services and ensure your railway ecosystem is resilient against potential cyberattacks, by making sure vulnerabilities are identified and patched ASAP.

Cloud-first for improved reliability

With LiveCoM Suite hosted in the Cloud, your off-board solution evolves over time, while the on-board parts can benefit from Over-The-Air updates. In this way, your ecosystem always runs on the latest version of LiveCoM Suite, and you get to enjoy the latest patches and features as soon as they are released.

You will save drastically on IT costs compared with legacy tools, since server maintenance and IT resources from your side are no longer required.   

LiveCoM Suite is also available as a single-tenant solution that can be tailored to your needs. Private Cloud is the ideal option when your railway network requires hosting in a certain region for legal or security-related reasons.

With Private Cloud you can select a specific SLA level that best fits your needs in terms of availability and support.

The benefits of LiveCoM Suite Cloud hosting services in a nutshell:

  • save on infrastructure and IT operation costs, as everything is provided as part of a turn-key solution
  • fast implementation thanks to standardized hosting architectures
  • service level agreements (SLA) are attached, to meet your desired service level targets
  • multi- or single tenant with Private Cloud for a tailored approach

IT approach security

LiveCoM Suite Cloud and Private Cloud hosting services use a Secure Development Life Cycle (SDLC), a security standard for ensuring future-proof railway systems. SDLC is a model by which software solutions are built using security best practices.

For railway systems, Televic GSP has defined an elaborate set of best security practices in each phase of the development.
