Connectivity Made Simple For Rail Operations


With 45% of rail maintenance unplanned, demand for real-time monitoring and intelligent network switching for seamless, always-on data transmission is on the rise. But many railway operators lack the necessary connectivity capabilities that allow them to effectively manage their fleet.

Connectivity dark spots where terrestrial coverage isn’t available render locomotives and trains invisible to control centers and hinder critical analytics and monitoring.

Rail communications are increasingly dependent on complex applications that require high-performing, reliable and cost-effective network access.

Whether you need connectivity to ensure crew safety, fleet monitoring, or continuous reporting for and regulatory requirements, rail operations need loads of bandwidth for big data strategies that can enable them to act on insights and realise efficiencies. Pain points include:

  • Operational delays due to unscheduled asset downtime
  • Manual track inspections that lead to human error and irregularities
  • Inability to integrate existing and new connectivity technologies

The Intelsat FlexMove Solution

With a ubiquitous, always-available, high-throughput satellite (HTS) infrastructure, 99.95% network uptime, and the ability to deploy unique digital solutions aimed at conditional and predictive maintenance, FlexMove is designed specifically for rail operations.

Engineered for both connected mobility to support moving vehicles and portable connectivity which can connect multiple devices, FlexMove empowers any user to access the internet, private network or cloud-based application in just minutes without the need for in-depth technical expertise.

Having a variety of flexible service plans is critical. Rail operators require varying levels of network throughput depending on unique requirements including data speeds and committed data rates. FlexMove offers a range of data plans and consistent, enterprise-grade internet access. And with data speeds up to 10x faster than narrowband on-the-move satellite solutions at a fraction of the cost, FlexMove can meet your connectivity needs, no matter how they evolve.
