HUBER+SUHNER EXTENDS RAILWAY PORTFOLIO WITH KATHREIN ANTENNAS
Following its acquisition of the Kathrein rail antenna portfolio in May, HUBER+SUHNER has introduced an expanded connectivity offering for customers in the railway market.
The complete documentation for all former Kathrein antennas is now available online, with existing customers able to access this in the same way as for HUBER+SUHNER antennas. Former Kathrein rail customers are also being on-boarded to experience the same level of service as before, including product availability and delivery times.
“The Kathrein and HUBER+SUHNER railway antennas are a perfect marriage of complementary products,” said Daniel Montagnese, Product Manager Rail Antennas at HUBER+SUHNER. “The merged portfolio now covers all possible radio frequency (RF) service applications for railway needs from VHF, TETRA, GSM-R and, of course cellular 2G-3G-4G-5G and WiFi in both SISO, MIMO and Multiple MIMO configurations. Combined with a complete offering across wire and cable, radio frequency and fiber optic technology, HUBER+SUHNER can now satisfy all connected mobility needs for the railway industry from electrical to fibre-optics.”
Both HUBER+SUHNER and Kathrein have been innovation leaders in the railway antenna segment for a number of decades. The most recent development is a new SENCITY Rail rooftop antenna which is compatible with all global navigation satellite systems – GPS, GLONASS, BEIDOU, and GALILEO.
Montagnese added: “This new SENCITY Rail antenna further proves our constant commitment to innovation. Our railway customers can expect a consolidated range of high-quality solutions, which are matched by the technical support from our dedicated application engineers. The HUBER+SUHNER rail connectivity portfolio includes antennas for rooftop, trackside, in-carriage and inter-carriage applications, alongside leading wire and cable and fiber optics solutions, such as the RADOX railway approved cables and inter-vehicle jumpers with fire resistant fiber optics cables. The full portfolio meets the needs for the broad range of rail vehicles from high-speed trains to Metros and tramways.”
