Monotch’s partner network expanded with a new partner on July 1st, namely TriOpSys. Both Monotch and TriOpSys endorse the importance that smart mobility requires smart information exchange between road users, road authorities and service providers.
The Urban Data Access Platform (UDAP) was launched earlier this year. This platform, developed by Monotch, ensures quick, reliable and accessible data exchange between the different parties. TriOpSys has an impressive track record of providing traffic management services to road authorities that monitor and guide traffic. With the announced collaboration, TriOpSys and Monotch will join forces to guide and unburden road authorities, especially in network security and facilitating a secure connection to UDAP.
UDAP service and link to road objects
The UDAP platform mainly focuses on receiving and quickly transmitting data for the smart control of roadside systems such as intelligent traffic control systems, bollards and barriers. But the platform offers many more options. For example, road authorities will manage their roadside systems and applications in the ‘SystemAdministration’ of UDAP and authorise others. They can also make the desired traffic management decisions based on the data communication of the roadside systems connected to UDAP and give specific road users priority at traffic lights.
Secure network environment for data exchange
Monotch has found the perfect solution partner in TriOpSys to connect road authorities with the UDAP platform securely. The IT specialist has built up extensive knowledge in mission-critical IT and mobility. UDAP is specially built to quickly and securely exchange large volumes of data. Safety and speed are a requirement but also significant challenges. The rules for connecting to UDAP are, therefore, deliberately strict. Not every road authority can be connected to UDAP just like that. Continued extensive testing for compliance with quality requirements is an important measure to ensure data security. And TriOpSys can play an essential role as a solution partner. The specialist knowledge and experience of TriOpSys in the field of business-critical systems fits seamlessly with Monotch’s requirements for connections with UDAP. As a partner, TriOpSys can guide road authorities step-by-step in connecting them to the UDAP System Administration and ensure a secure connection.
Exchanging valuable knowledge within the partnership
Rolf Appel, Business Unit Manager Traffic Management at TriOpSys, states that this partnership also guarantees that Monotch and TriOpSys will exchange valuable knowledge with each other so that TriOpSys customers will establish and maintain connections with UDAP efficiently and with good quality. “With our collaboration, we can both improve the service to road authorities and unburden them in this regard. In the coming years, we will also look at where Monotch’s software and TriOpSys integration services can strengthen each other even more”.
Menno Malta, Director of Smart Mobility at Monotch, is impressed by TriOpSys’ expertise and years of experience in network security. “This is a great way to connect our expertise and technology, and we also remain alert and keen on the quality requirements set by the Urban Data Access Platform”.
TriOpSys specialises in designing, building and managing mission-critical IT systems or business-critical software systems that should never fail.
