Railway solutions for safe, on-time and connected journeys

Railway infrastructure is a critical component for a strong and sustainable economic environment in any country or region. The railways industry is entering an increasingly open and competitive world. Ensuring safety is still the main concern, while improving efficiency of operations, reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO) and ensuring connected journeys are also becoming major topics.

Communication networks play a crucial role in helping railway operators and public transport authorities ensure on-time, safe and connected journeys. They run alongside the railways infrastructure and are the path to providing reliable voice and data services for train control, operations and emergency communications, multimedia collaboration, video protection and also passenger connectivity.

Nokia helps guarantee future-proof investments with carrier-grade, highly reliable network solutions based on standardized technologies. We are also enabling smooth migration of legacy products and services towards the next generation of Railways broadband technology. Discover more in our brochure!
