One of the challenges – and also one of the big opportunities – is to gain insight from the great mixture of systems used for planning, operation and maintenance.
How are the different sub-systems used? What are their capacity utilisation and maintenance needs, and how can the system be optimised? Can the infrastructure owners obtain synergies by linking the different sub-systems together? How can we create the conditions to enable the greatest traffic precision, the optimum traffic density and the most appropriate customer communication?
Cactus CS lays the foundations for making all systems smart whatever their age or system type. Cactus CS uses a common descriptive model for all connected systems; regardless of the type of sub-system, traffic type or track object to be connected, Cactus CS creates common interfaces with standardised and open protocols.
Cactus CS is a system with world-leading performance and system architecture. This means that the aspects of the system to do with scalability, automated testing, plug-and-play, configuration, flexibility, robustness and availability are extremely well developed.
The system can be configured for redundancy, distributed redundancy, automatic load-balancing and geographical distribution according to the customer’s wishes. All in all, the system meets extremely demanding requirements:
