Remote software updates protect against counterfeit money

G+D Currency Technology has assigned RTSoft to code the agent for automated remote software updates and data exchange for BPS C2 banknote processing systems with central dashboards.

Key facts

  • Develop a cross-platform data exchange and software update agent
  • Programmed in C
  • Utilizing a cross-platfrom framework
  • Option to port device logic to different OS
  • Slim data exchange between target application and communication agent
  • Secure M2M application layer implementation for data exchange with clouds and servers
  • Rule engine for dashboard feeds via that channel
  • Local software update agent logic
  • Future option to port transport layer to TCP/TLS


The data exchange now relies on secure M2M communication with private and public clouds as well as on-premise servers. The agent was designed on the basis of a cross-platform framework. Future updates to different operating systems are seamlessly possible. Today, G+D Currency Technology can update several hundred banknote processing systems extremely fast with only a few clicks at any available bandwidth. Another important aspect for G+D was the plug & play functionality of the RTSoft solution, which does not require any on-site configuration during commissioning for activating the 24/7 monitoring system and update channel. For local maintenance services, the agent also offers a side channels for updates via USB



Working with RTSoft is highly efficient, as these experts in embedded software for intelligent things are driven by highest service orientation. We only had to explain briefly what we needed and were immediately understood and comprehensively served.
