In order to meet present and future demands, several railway organisations across the world are aiming to move from existing communication technologies to more modern ones. Because of this, Indian Railways is considering several transformative projects to improve railway operations, passenger safety and security, and passenger satisfaction.
Aerial Telecom Solutions Pvt. Ltd. (ATS) has been assisting railways through innovative network solutions for network design, installation & commissioning, network integration, post-deployment warranty, and AMC support for railways and metro railways. SDH, IP-MPLS, EPABX, GSM-R, VHF, Wi-Fi Access, Video Surveillance, Synchronization, Emergency Communication, and other world-class telecom equipment are available from ATS as part of an integrated solution.
GSM-R and other radio technologies are essential for running numerous railway operations successfully. The technologies provide a variety of voice and data communication services and manage radio frequencies used by various radio components, systems, and users.
ATS's key areas of interest in the Indian Railways and Metro Railways are:
- Telecom solutions
- Signalling Solutions
- Electronic components for telecom and signalling.
- Execution of turnkey projects for telecom and signalling
- Passenger in-train services and applications,
- Fast and flawless train operations
- Support for new 5G telecom and technologies solutions
- Interoperability challenges and solutions
- Public safety and security solutions
- Seamless communications solutions across all railway applications
- New applications based on virtualised IT platform and cloud
- Increased focus on network safety and mission-critical communications based on telecom technologies.
In Indian Railways, communication between the control office, train crew, and the station master is critical for various train operations with ultimate safety and security. Presently, Indian Railways has been using Long Term Evolution (LTE), also known as 4G, a fully packet-switched-based network and mobile communication technology. Indian Railways is also seeking 5G telecom technologies to deploy as the next-generation communication technology for high data speed, low latency, network reliability, and quality of service. Aerial Telecom Solutions Pvt. Ltd. can modernize mobile communication for Indian Railways using 5G technologies and equipment.
The Future Railway Mobile Communication System (FRMCS) is a future global communications system planned by UIC in close collaboration with various rail stakeholders as the successor to GSM-R but also as a vital enabler for rail transport digitalization.
5G is an important enabler for FRMCS
5G can assist Railways in making the most of your FRMCS migration. It provides high capacity, performance, and reliability, as well as immense MTC and IoT support. Aerial Telecom Solutions (ATS) can support ultra-reliable, low-latency mission-critical communications for FRMCS based on 5G technologies. ATS can support Railways create a platform for novel apps, such as group video calling and automated train control, as well as predictive maintenance and fast on-board Wi-Fi, to decrease operating costs and improve the passenger experience.
