5Ge Rail: 5G communication platform for Railway

Ruggedized LAN enabler for seamless 5G connectivity.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    5Ge-Rail is a new device which enables railway scenarios to have 5G (and higher 4G categories) connectivity with low installation cost.

    Figure 1: Enhanced 5G connectivity with 5Ge-Rail Enabler

  • 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.

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

  • 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).

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
