Rolling Stock market overview


The market expects digital

Liberalization has opened up the EU passenger train market, adding to bus and air transport competition. In response, train operators must compete on more than just process, schedules, and routes; digitalizing their rolling stock to enhance their passengers’ experience and boost their own operational efficiency.

Customers today expect high-performance Wi-Fi connectivity, with passenger information systems and onboard ticketing to cut stress. For comfort, IoT devices control indoor air quality, temperature, and humidity.

Meanwhile, digitalization improves operator efficiency with high-reliability communications plus great network performance visibility, CCTV, physical and network access control, proactive onboard equipment maintenance, and GPS-based location tracking.

These goals demand better data connectivity. 4G/LTE ground to train communications are essential; 5G is far better if available. Satellite links are also important for route sections lacking cellular coverage, as are trackside links for stationary trains. Above all, all communications channels should be reliable, secure, and amenable to easy remote management.

On board, multi-service communications routers and gateways should support all train to ground links, and supply corporate-standard networks – including Wi-Fi access points for staff and passengers’ mobile devices, plus BT/BT LE connectivity for IoT devices and apps.

What are the important points related to Rolling Stock?

Enhance Passenger Experience

Passengers, even in crowded carriages, can enjoy great Wi-Fi 6 connectivity. Passenger information systems and convenient online ticketing reduce stress, while IoT-based environmental management maintains onboard comfort.

Onboard Communications

Multi-WWAN routers distribute data throughout the train via dual Gigabit Ethernet cables to Access Points providing secure, high-speed Wi-Fi 6 to passenger devices in crowded carriages, and Bluetooth/BLE ports for IoT hardware.

Understanding Rolling Stock

Bandwidth, coverage, functionality

Competitive rolling stock digitalization calls for multi-WWAN links, security-ready and high-performance router, switching and AP hardware to achieve the bandwidth and coverage required, for all locations. But it takes advanced SD-WAN software components to optimize operational efficiency and deliver the passenger experience expected by today’s rail users.
