The rise of next-gen communications in rail networks

Digital transformation is upending rail communications. Here’s how providers can meet the challenges of migrating to integrate all IP based networks. Global passenger rail is expected to grow around 3.3% per annum up to 2025, with emerging economies adding up to 50% over the same period. As the world adapts to widespread digital transformation, rail providers will be no exception. Effective seamless communications is the mainstream of railways, and most rail operators still rely on single-purpose legacy networks to support specific applications.

Gearing Up for the Challenge: Deploying Superior and Cost-Effective Technology for Faster Broadband Service across EU

Telecom service providers in Europe are under increasing pressure from regulatory bodies to employ advanced technologies for providing ultrafast Internet speed to their customers. Full-fiber broadband is considered to be a much faster and approximately five times more reliable alternative to the currently used wired broadband solutions. Records, however, show that in the UK, only 3% of homes and offices use fiber-based broadband networks as against 97% in Japan¹. The challenge of slow networks is more acute in rural and underdeveloped areas. Despite paying the same tariffs as their urban counterparts, customers in these regions do not necessarily enjoy broadband…
