Taking metro rail’s backbone communications networks to the next level
As urban populations continue to rapidly expand, urban railway operators are challenged to provide reliable, sustainable and safe transportation that can also scale-up and evolve to meet future passenger traffic volumes and needs. They are deploying new applications to improve safety, security, and passenger experience. Traditional siloed network infrastructure is not an optimised approach. To be successful, rail operators need the ability to run all train control, telemetry, operational safety and passenger applications over a unified, high-capacity backbone network. This webinar discussed networking solutions that enable metro/urban rail operators to build a converged mission-critical communications foundation for digital transformation, meeting the needs of today and tomorrow.
KEY LEARNING POINTS:
- Latest IP/MPLS implementation for backbone network
- Key attributes including convergence, high availability, and security
- Simplified management
- Real life deployment examples.
