We helped Norfolk Southern Rail boost safety and efficiency
with IP network, as one of North America’s largest freight railways upgraded its communications network to enhance safety, improve operational efficiency and support future business expansion.


As metro networks become busier, more capacity is required
— not only for passengers, but also for operational applications and services. A promising solution lies with a unified ground-to-train radio networks based on 4G LTE technology. We, within a consortium called SYSTUF, conducted a trial project in real-world conditions on Paris metro line 14.


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.
