IVU: Reference for e-ticketing

Full VDV-KA certification for IVU hardware and software

Berlin/Cologne, 15 January 2019 – Certification from VDV eTicket Service GmbH confirms that the ticketing solutions of IVU Traffic Technologies are fully VDV-KA-compliant. This means that hardware and software from the Berlin-based IT specialist for public transport is now also officially compatible with the Germany-wide e-ticketing standard.

To obtain the prestigious certification, the IVU devices IVU.ticket.box and IVU.validator with the sales software IVU.ticket went through realistic applications involving the validation and issue of (((eTtickets. They passed all tests with flying colours: from the issue of a single ticket with or without multiple authorisation to sale of express tickets as recorded trip authorisations and from cash, prepaid card and account-based payment to the validation of smart cards and barcodes – IVU solutions are prepared for every scenario. System organisation, such as the processing of blacklists, activation of emergency keys or handling of invalid SAMs, also fully meets the requirements of the VDV-KA standard.

“Along with the associated application software, the IVU devices went through the entire certification process without any complaints,” says Elke Fischer, Head of Standardisation at VDV eTicket Service GmbH. “As a result, we successfully certified two combined devices for issue and validation of standard-compliant e-tickets. IVU.ticket.box and IVU.validator are therefore compatible with all (((eTickets produced in Germany in line with VDV-KA and can be used to sell and validate them.”

Together with the central fare management and settlement system IVU.fare, the devices map the entire ticketing process at a transport operator. IVU.ticket.box and IVU.validator are inherently prepared for the use of e-ticketing and can be implemented quickly and easily – with no additional adaptations.

“We are very proud of the VDV-KA certification of our devices. As a result, we are becoming established as the reference in the German e-ticketing market,” says Henrik Benner, division manager at IVU Traffic Technologies. “The fact that there were no complaints at all emphasises our long-standing commitment to uniform specifications throughout the industry. The name IVU is synonymous with standards.” In the past, IVU has been involved in developments such as the VDV standard IBIS-IP for a digital, integrated on-board information system. The company recently joined the ITxPT Association, which aims to develop internationally uniform system standards.

IVU Traffic Technologies has been working for over 40 years with more than 500 engineers to ensure punctual and reliable transport in the world’s metropolises. In growing cities, people and vehicles are constantly on the move – a logistical challenge that calls for intelligent and secure software systems. The integrated standard products of the IVU.suite work to plan, optimise and control the deployment of buses and trains, provide passengers with real-time information, create routes for parcel delivery services, and support businesses in choosing branch locations.
