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.
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?
Increase Operational Efficiency
Operators can remotely configure, view, and control their rolling stock WAN environment – optimizing maintenance, managing physical and network security. AI can be applied to automatically collected data to help decision-making.
Train to Ground Communications
Multi-channel connectivity, using 4G/LTE, 5G, satellite and Wi-Fi are essential to ensure reliable, secure communications at all times – whether the train is in a remote location, halted at a station, or within a maintenance depot.
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.
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.
Hardware Solution & Teldat products
Rolling stock network hardware
Teldat’s H2-Rail multi-WWAN rail-certified router supports 4G, LTE, Wi-Fi, and satellite comms; it connects via Gigabit Ethernet to the new APR2044ax Access Point. The APR2044ax’s Wi-Fi 6 brings new performance levels to crowded rail scenarios and with its BT LE allows the connection of IoT devices.
The 5Ge-Rail adds 5G to H2-Rail, or operates standalone. The cloud-hosted Be.IoT Platform supports IoT devices.
