Tait Communications has joined the Information Technology for Public Transport (ITxPT) organisation as a principal member.

ITxPT aims to further cooperation on the implementation of standards for plug-and-play IT systems applied to public transport.

Tait is working with key intelligent transport system (ITS) providers and transport authorities and operators in the UK (London, Dublin, Edinburgh), the Czech Republic (Pilsen), the United States (Portland, Oregon) and Australia (Queensland) to design, implement and commission such communication solutions.

“In the communications world, we champion open-standards technology,” said John Gardener, chief technology officer of Tait Communications in Europe. “In joining the ITxPT initiative we aim to contribute to the development of these standards for the public-transport sector.

“Open standards are a core aspect of the solutions and services we offer and advocate for, whether it be with the FCC in the USA, ETSI in Europe or 3GPP on the development of global cellular standards.

“Open standards benefit society through greater choice for customers, lower development costs for their software and hardware vendors, reduced vendor lock-in and ultimately better value for customer organisations and the general public they are serving,” Gardener said.
