Interoperability

Ability of a system or component to function and operate, in a unique and predetermined manner, in different predefined contexts. In particular, the ability of a railway system to allow trains to travel safely and without interruption, performing specified services. This capacity is based on the set of regulatory, technical and operational conditions that must be met to comply with the essential requirements. Feature often referred specifically to the high-speed trans-European network. In general, in the railway field it therefore indicates the possibility of running trains in the various European networks, having common technical, operational and organizational standards. This interoperability can be achieved with a common command and control system which in particular meets the problem of the different signaling systems existing today; this system is the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS). The interoperability defined here allows the safe running of the trains in the various networks: without the need to have to stop the trains at the border; without changing the locomotive or engine driver; without requiring the engine driver to follow additional or different operations than those standardized in the ERTMS. Two degrees of interoperability can be defined: a technical and an operational one
