Connected Communities Infrastructure – Rail Solution Design Guide

Passenger rail operators must ensure the safety of workers, passengers, and the public while concurrently keeping trains running on schedule, providing superior service, and minimizing operational costs. To achieve these business objectives, rail equipment and infrastructure owners can take advantage of increasingly advanced technology to address safety concerns, improve asset visibility, offer new value-added services, increase ridership, and reduce operating expenses.

Freight rail carriers use remote control, automation, and new Internet of Things (IoT) data to keep workers safe, streamline operations, and minimize freight cost per mile, so they remain competitive with other modes of overland freight transportation.

Passenger rail providers can offer services such as high-speed Internet access, infotainment, mobile ticketing, and security systems on trains and in stations to enhance the passenger experience and increase ridership. The critical signaling and control systems such as European Railway Traffic Management System (ERTMS), Communication-based train control (CBTC), and positive train control (PTC) are needed for safe operation.

All these capabilities can be key to business success for rail operations, and they all depend on a foundation of network capability that is secure, scalable, reliable, and resilient, and that satisfies an ever-increasing demand for data throughput. Cisco networking products and solutions provide the necessary foundation for securely solving these networking challenges. Cisco Industrial IoT products are proven to meet the unique demands of operating in a rail environment, and the Cisco Connected Rail solution provides a Cisco Validated Design for reliably interconnecting high-speed trains, trackside infrastructure, stations, and operations centers across all the rail operator’s sites and regions.

The Cisco Connected Rail solution validates the architecture for high-speed, robust wireless connectivity between train and trackside as well as resilient, scalable access and backhaul transport infrastructure to interconnect wayside, stations, and operations centers across the rail operator regions. As listed in Table 1, rail operators and Cisco solution partners use Connected Rail as a secure foundation on which to build their solutions to support use cases including passenger Wi-Fi, infotainment, video surveillance and analytics, operations management, maintenance, signaling, and control.
