VDS RAIL: 10GBE BACKBONE ETHERNET TRAIN CORE NETWORKS
On-board train networks are facing new technological challenges due to the growing usage needs of rail operators and passengers, resulting in a growing demand for Ethernet bandwidth up to 10GbE.
In an upcoming framework of digitization and automation of the sector's operations, the requirements for connectivity will be higher than the current ones and, therefore, more efficient on-board train communication solutions will have to be put in place.
Transfer rate, latency and reliability are the key factors when working with 5G, mmWave or technology based on them. 5G and Millimeter transfer rates will increase data usage even further, especially if operations involve in-vehicle systems and dedicated passenger connectivity services. All of this will require the use of core TCN train networks at the speed of 10GbE.
Passengers now expect to enjoy WiFi and connectivity equivalent to what they use at home. All this leads to an increase in demand for the network available on board trains. With the 10GbE switch design, you can improve the reliability of communication networks while giving passengers a superior travel experience.
VDS Rail's solution, currently available, includes a row switch equipped with 5 10 GbE ports and a row switch equipped with 4 10 GbE ports.
