NextTraffic combines Cubic’s expertise in transportation payment and information technologies with Microsoft’s leadership in enterprise solutions
Cubic Transportation Systems (CTS) has teamed up with Microsoft to move its transportation and traffic management system to the cloud.
The deal will allow Cubic to make its newly introduced NextTraffic offering available through Microsoft’s Azure Cloud platform.
“This collaboration allows us to utilise the full power of Microsoft technology to improve our solutions today and develop future-proof, scalable solutions for tomorrow,” said Boris Karsch, vice president of strategy, Cubic Transportation Systems. “This strategic relationship will be beneficial for both companies as we build on CTS’ expertise in payment and information systems for public transportation and traffic management and Microsoft’s world-leading enterprise solutions.”
NextTraffic is a flexible and scalable cloud-enabled platform that allows the collection, processing, monitoring, controlling and management of all traffic elements on multiple computer networks in one source. This provides for control of surface transportation and better utilisation of roads and networks, said Cubic.
It supports system-wide data collection, processing and sharing of information to travellers and cities with a modern and flexible solution that can work with the customer’s existing infrastructure, the company added.
“Smart city transportation solutions have the potential to improve traffic patterns, reduce congestion, contribute to economic growth and revolutionize city planning, all while improving the quality of transportation around the city,” said Toni Townes-Whitley, corporate vice president, worldwide public sector for Microsoft. “We’re excited to work with Cubic, a domain expert in its field, to develop new transportation solutions for our customers.”
Cubic Transportation Systems is a business division of San Diego based Cubic Corporation.
