Accelerate the digital rail journey with agile cloud networking

How can the railway industry meet operating challenges faster and more effectively, including exponential change? Watch this webinar in association with Nokia to discover how an agile cloud networking framework can play a key role in operational success.

Today, many railways have high ambitions for rapidly expanding passenger traffic. But they also require new capacities for transporting commodities, such as grain and fuel. In addition, they are facing more intense, longer climate events. To meet all these crucial demands, operators must become agile, so they can adapt successfully to an uncertain business and operating environment.

The key lies in accelerating the adoption of technology innovations – particularly for asset and facilities management. The latest innovations are data- and compute-intensive, which means they require an agile cloud-native application environment, spread across an on-premises data centre, local compute edge locations and the public cloud.

This webinar will explore the elements of a new cloud networking framework, including the data centre network fabric, mission-critical wide area network and local edge compute networks. Together, they provide the foundation of a railway OT cloud, which enables agile, digital operation.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Architect an agile cloud networking layer to synchronise with the heartbeat of the cloud application layer – allowing more rapid adaptation to new business requirements
  • Attain seamless internetworking between the mission-critical networks, the data centre fabric and local compute edge networks
  • Monitor cloud networking services to ensure connectivity between mission-critical workloads for business and operational continuity
  • Provide redundancy for both application and network layers to maintain high application availability.
