Salzburg Transport (SVV) relies on MENTZ’s DDIP
Salzburg Transport (SVV) put out a request for proposal for a real-time data hub and MENTZ won the tender with its Dynamic Data Integration Platform (DDIP). In the summer of 2020, the SVV wanted to procure a data hub to connect the various suppliers and consumers of real-time forecasts and vehicle positions within the State of Salzburg.
“Up until just recently, the infrastructure of a neighboring transport network was used for this purpose. We hit our target of having provided the SVV with its own platform for fast and reliable data exchange by the end of July 2021,” reported Project Manager Annamaria Rittger. The SVV and its affiliated companies transport around 70 million passengers annually in and around Salzburg.
Interface for Data
“Moving forward, we are able to provide passengers and customers in Salzburg with reliable and fast flowing information via the MENTZ data hub,” said Rittger.
With the DDIP, the SVV has a proven, quality product. It is already in use with many customers and its ongoing further development ensures its value. “We started by integrating the VDV-453-VIS and VDV-454-(REF)AUS services. So far so good, but we also made sure to create the ability to connect additional interfaces and partners in the near future,” emphasized Co-Project Manager Dr. Matthias Erven.
