In a normal Ethernet data network, the network is divided into a backbone side and an edge side. However, in a Train Communication Network, the network is divided into an ETB and an ECN.
End devices can connect to a TBN Ethernet switch directly when there are not a large quantity of end devices. When the number of end devices is large, and the network flow needs to be managed by QoS or VLAN; the ECN should be implemented with a hierarchical structure. There can be one or more ECNs in each train car with an IEC 61375-3-4 compliant Ethernet switches installed, for easy management.
Considering the installation and maintenance costs, Lantech rolling stock Ethernet Switches can support both IEC 61375-2-5 (ETB) and IEC 61375-3-4 (ECN) at the same time. These products will help train operators & installation companies reduce their capital outlay costs by providing greater flexibility when designing the network topology.
