    A Shift2Rail IP2 project supporting TD 2.9 "Traffic Management Evolution"


Over the last decades, main Infrastructures Managers (IMs) have deployed Traffic Management Systems (TMS) which have been used to manage the operation of the railway system. However, the existing interfaces of the TMS were not developed considering the scalability of the system and were generally constituted of proprietary ad-hoc solutions limited to the core TMS. Therefore, the integration of new interfaces with additional rail business and information services will require a duplication of ICT resources and large recurrent expenditures. Another disadvantage of the current TMS is the lack of standardization in their interfaces which does not allow for the full potential benefits of developing rail business and information services such as the interoperability of the system with other similar TMS , to be taken advantage of.
