Huawei announces rail connectivity systems
New digital connectivity solutions to connect rail transport systems
Huawei has launched a series of ICT solutions for rail transport.
The Huawei Urban Rail Light Cloud, 5G Digital Indoor System (DIS) solutions, and LTE-Railway (LTE-R) Solution, are intended to enable next-generation rail wireless communications.
The solutions have been jointly released with Tianjin 712 Communication & Broadcasting Co., LTD at the UITP Global Public Transport Summit 2019.
Under the theme ‘Cloud-Based Urban Rail, the Art of Mobility’, the company outlined how a new breed of ICT solutions will enable an era of fully-connected, digital rail transportation. The solutions deliver cloud-based services, broadband connectivity, and better-connected digital railways to help rail operators build safer, smarter, and more efficient rail transportation systems, continuously improve transportation capacity and drive service innovations.
Eman Liu, President of the Global Transportation Business Unit of Huawei Enterprise Business Group, commented: "Rail transportation is a complex system that involves railways, vehicles, AFC, and signals. For a seamless, interconnected environment across this system, rail operators need communications devices to collect data and digital platforms that integrate cloud, IoT, big data, and AI to ensure secure, reliable and efficient operations. Huawei aims to help rail customers achieve digital transformation by offering the Urban Rail Cloud and rail operation communications solutions, as well as collaborating with global partners to move railways into the future."
Digital urban railway can enhance the customer experience in rail journeys. Mohamed Mezghani, Secretary General of UITP said: "A high quality public transport needs a double priority: both physical and digital infrastructure."
Huawei says it has over 20 year’s experience in the rail sector, and has provided services for 120,000km or railway and over 100 urban tracks worldwide.
