With digitalisation the cornerstone of the Swiss Federal Railways innovation strategy we look at how it protects its central rail communication platform with standardised security services that defend the service from cyber-attacks or threats.
The Swiss Federal Railways AG, which also goes by the abbreviation SBB, operates with a punctuality rate of over 95 percent, making it one of the most reliable train services in Europe. This high reliability is only possible thanks to secure and fast communication between the operations centres and the staff in stations, on trains and on the tracks. And this track record is what makes rail travel in Switzerland the most preferred mode of local transport.
Digitalisation is a cornerstone of SBB’s innovation strategy. The Group relies on secure digital networking in order to be able to expand its excellent customer service.
Austrian safety-critical technology supplier Frequentis provides its solution as a core component of the railway providers operational communication environment. This is an essential factor of SBB’s reliability, connecting all stakeholders together in real-time, streamlining communication paths.
Within the framework of an almost 20-year co-operation with Frequentis, the operational communication environment of SBB has been continuously expanded and modernised, in order to ensure that employees in the operations centres can communicate quickly and securely with train drivers, service staff on the trains and with other staff.
