Traditionally, urban (metro) and main line critical infrastructure for rail networks has been based on robust but inflexible systems designed to move data through fiber optic and microwave transmissions. To operate safely and efficiently, the new Critical WAN Infrastructure increasingly relies on a converged IP/MPLS-based communication network to support network resiliency, quality of service, virtualization, synchronous Ethernet, convergence and a management platform that automates and simplifies operations management.
Nokia’s Critical WAN Infrastructure solution offers an easy route to this new infrastructure, avoiding disruption while laying the ground for migration to an all-IP network.
Nokia’s Critical WAN Infrastructure solution is customized to suit specific railway operator business needs. This reliable, secure and scalable infrastructure consists of:
Nokia and partner components
- IP/MPLS routers, carrier Ethernet switch/router portfolio
- Optical portfolio
- Wireless transmission (microwave) portfolio
- Wireline Access products
Nokia provides a full lifecycle of services including network consulting, security consulting, design and architecture, project management and network deployment services. This includes the capability to deliver end-to-end integration and migration services for IP/MPLS, optical and microwave networks. Nokia can also operate the communications network, leaving railway operators free to concentrate on their core business.
