Train-to-ground solutions can accelerate railway’s digital transformation
Craig Waters, Editor of Global Railway Review, speaks with Emanuele Di Liberto, Head of the Global Rail Business Centre at Nokia, about train-to-ground communications for rail networks and how the solutions available can accelerate rail digital transformation and get more passengers to choose to travel by rail.
Today’s railway operators are under the spotlight as governments are continually looking to reduce urban congestion, lower carbon emissions and increase the numbers of passengers travelling by rail.
Nokia’s train-to-ground solutions can help the industry by accelerating rail’s digital transformation, enabling operators to envision innovative ways to operate more efficiently while delivering value for passengers.
In this video interview (below), Emanuele Di Liberto, Head of the Global Rail Business Centre at Nokia, discusses why it is important to make the passenger journey experience better, the role that improving on-time efficiency, safety and security plays, how mission-critical broadband connectivity forms the foundation for digitally transforming today’s railways, and Nokia’s plans to continue supporting the rail industry in the future.
