Take the train further by supporting mission-critical applications such as signaling and other services on a single converged network. Leverage your current infrastructure as it evolves into a smart rail system to reduce cost, improve efficiency and safety, and create new revenue streams
Simplify operations with a single, converged IP rail communications network. Increase your flexibility to better manager passenger and cargo traffic.
Empower your smart rail system with a single, highly resilient, and secure communications network. Better anticipate and prevent risks to passengers, cargo, and assets by keeping in touch with everything on your smart rail in real time.
Offer passengers the connected services they crave with a unified, ultra-broadband network that combines LTE and IP/MPLS. Take advantage of multi-tenant capacity to explore new business models for generating non-fare revenue.
See how our smart rail solutions can help you take the train further to ensure on-time, safe, and connected journeys.
A converged packet-based communication network offers more flexibility while reducing cost and maintaining security.
A wavelength division multiplexing optical and microwave communications opens the gates to introduce new bandwidth hungry application and services.
4G LTE allows the consolidation of multiple radio systems into one unified ground-to-train communication solution.
