Connected Rail solution was developed by a transportation focused engineering team to address the needs and outcomes of a modernizing transit agency. In short, it is a set of validated reference architectures, design documentation, and implementation guides that were also co-created with global rail industry stakeholders. The solution is comprised of the appropriate data center, wired and wireless networking, security, software and services necessary to enable the most demanding rail applications. Further, Cisco Connected Rail consists of three primary systems Cisco Connected Train, Connected Trackside, and Connected Station. Through proven and well-established standards based technologies, Cisco Connected Rail solutions maximize implementation success and significantly reduce installation risk, cost and deployment time.
