Current PTC systems lack reliability in operation. This is due to the absence of a reliable wireless infrastructure and is often related to Interoperability across several PTC systems.
There is a current lack of PTC technology, vendors and access to expertise capable of designing and integrating to the current PTC systems.
PTC is deployed across several systems involving various RF spectrum, different data protocols and interfaces which are required for reliable operation.
