5Ge Rail: 5G communication platform for Railway

Ruggedized LAN enabler for seamless 5G connectivity.

Product Highlights

  • 5G Radio with fallback to LTE up to Cat. 20
  • 2x 2.5 Gbps port ethernet (1xPoE)
  • MU-MIMO 4x4
  • Dual SIM capabilities for multiple carriers
  • Compliant with railway regulations
  • Full routing capabilities (optional)


The Teldat 5Ge Rail is a new device which enables railway scenarios to have 5G (and higher 4G categories) connectivity with low installation cost and no losses due to long antenna cables. The 5Ge Rail, due to its small size, is able to be installed near the rooftop antenna, making easier the selection of antenna spots, and the installation itself. Featuring also PoE, for less cables, and less hassle. Its two ethernet ports enable for multiple installation scenarios.

Competitive Advantages

5G and LTE superior categories

Up to 2.5Gbps download and 650 upload, enabled for 700MHz band

Ruggedized hardware

Designed to withstand vibrations and extreme temp (-25 to 70°C). Certified
according to railway standards (EN 50155, EN 50121-3-2, EN 45545-2, EN 301 908-1)

Service and GPS-based automation

Communication monitoring and location tracking for dynamic routing policies per- service/link/position

Fanless architecture

The enclosure acts as a big heatsink, avoiding the use of mobile parts, which results in a higher MTBF.



Key Features

Broadband 5G module prepared both for NSA and SA

5G connectivity now, but prepared for the next SA evolution. With fallback to LTE in locations with low 5G coverage.

Hardware design for use on trains

Designed to withstand vibration and extreme temperatures (-25 to 70°C) and has full onboard train certifications (EN 50155, EN 50121-3-2, EN 301 511, EN 301 908-1, EN 45545-2).

Compatible with standards-based management platforms

Seamless integration with third party standards-based management tools (SNMP). It has also been integrated into Teldat’s Colibri network manager platform for remote monitoring and management.

Location-based (GPS) dynamic behavior

Ideal for telemarketing and fleet management. The device has a GPS (accessible via a TCP port) that provides real-time geo-location data in NMEA format.

Dual SIM

Operating both as a backup or as a location-selected operator, which enables for full flexibility, even in international routes.

Event and alert notifications

The device sends information with different levels of security through Syslog client, SNMP traps and e-mail alerts.

Secure, isolated multi-service communications

The use of advanced networking protocols with multiple WAN links allows the services and management of the different solutions sharing the communications to be logically separated from each other.

Advanced troubleshooting (fine-tuned, cloud)

Advanced troubleshooting (such as sniffer and syslog) for analyzing service/position/coverage problems along the route. Cloud management and auto-provisioning allow even unskilled personnel to install the equipment.
