How Remote Ticket Download works

RTD is back-office software that handles the security of tickets in the back office, allowing a wide range of devices to be used as the collection point – from traditional kiosks and retail terminals all the way to innovative NFC-enabled mobile devices. In addition to the back office management, RTD opens the route to mobile ticketing, leveraging an app to not only download and transfer ticketing information to the traveler’s smartcard using NFC technology, but also to store tickets on the mobile device itself, eliminating the smart card all together.

Specifically for ITSO – the national specification for interoperable smart ticketing in the UK -the RTD system can be thought of as a fulfillment POST for smart tickets. RTD features an array of ITSO Secure Authentication Modules (ISAMs), which enable the creation and download of smart ITSO-compliant tickets to a customer media device, such as a smart card or mobile phone, over a variety of network channels either physical or wireless.

There are two interfaces into RTD Server: the retail interface on the server and the download interface on the client.  The retail interface is used by an external system to make tickets available for purchase and the download interface is used by the client

RTD Enablers

The RTD Enablers evaluation kit gives RTD client developers all the tools and software they need to develop a working client that connects to RTD and downloads tickets. The kit is ideal for evaluating the capabilities of RTD and includes the smart cards, APIs, documentation and sample applications you need to get up and running quickly. The RTD enablers evaluation kit reduces the barrier to entry for ITSO ticketing and makes development quick and simple.
