interface to the path portal of DB Netz AG (Germany)
For the annual timetable 2008 the German infrastructure manager DB Netz AG has introduced a new, electronic method for booking train paths. Here path-demands of the Train Operating Companies (TOC) can be delivered online to DB Netz AG for construction and planning, just as the constructed train paths or path rejections are returned to the TOC. Further information can be found here (search for: access to the path portal DB Netz AG with the TOC interface) of DB Netz.
iRFP offers an interface program for processing of framework contracts, applications or path offers as well as the order administration from and to DB Netz AG in conjunction with the timetable construction system FBS. With this interface, train paths created in FBS can be delivered online by a DB Netz AG- internal defined method to DB Netz as well as retraced, changed or cancelled. Finally path offers of DB Netz can be picked up the same way and be compared with the timetable created in FBS and be confirmed at DB Netz. The interface also supports working offline, that means a data exchange without a network connection to DB Netz.
Our interface program is available in German only.
