European infrastructure managers have to optimize cost, reliability, safety, capacity and fast migration. Assets have to be renewed while new technologies are introduced. Incompatibilities create high cost and investment risks. Inflexible old architectures bind the asset owners to technologies and processes which are not making use of the possibilities of today. Expensive migration challenges hinder the infrastructure managers to change their situation fast.
RCA is introducing a modern architecture for the CCS field based on radio based ERTMS and EULYNX. It creates a flexible and safe investment situation by defining a framework for modular standard products as a set of standard requirements used in CCS procurements.
The digitization of command, control and signalling will only succeed together with a market, that uses standard architectures.
An introduction to RCA is presented in a short video.
