Rail Telecoms and Signalling Management
Test, Measure and Monitor Rail Telecoms Network and Signalling Systems’ Performance with Confidence
Comtest Wireless provides essential operational solutions for the effective management of rail telecoms, signalling and interlocking systems.
When a train stops, scanning multiple logs to find what went wrong and where, makes troubleshooting very time consuming. It’s even more challenging when the data is missing or unable to be correlated.
With multiple interconnected and complex systems, it’s important to ensure that the data from all sources can be synchronised and analysed.
Once the data is in one place, it’s much easier to understand what’s happening with rail telecoms, ETCS signalling and interlocking performance and how it can be better optimised.
The Comtest Wireless products comprise all the hardware and software needed to collect data on-board and wayside, then use NetProbe Analytics, the world-class analysis platform, to manage alerts, pinpoint statuses, issues and create reports.
Comtest Wireless solutions help rail operators and signalling/interlocking equipment vendors to save time and money when it comes to analysing and troubleshooting rail telecoms, ETCS L2 and ERTMS systems performance.
Solutions for every stage of the lifecycle:
- Test & Measurement/QoS
- Operations & maintenance
- Asset management
Rail Telecoms Network
As train lines become ever more reliant on digital infrastructure, the need for a robust rail telecoms network is becoming truly mission critical, whether that’s using GSM-R, TETRA, 4G/LTE or the emerging 5G and FRMCS technologies.
Rail Signalling Systems
Test, measure and monitor ERTMS/ ETCS trackside systems and rail telecoms performance in one place.
Comtest Wireless signalling solutions help rail operators and equipment vendors to save time and money when it comes to analysing and troubleshooting ETCS L2 and ERTMS systems performance.
GSM-R Security Monitoring
Comtest Wireless provides the rail industry’s first cyber sniffer for GSM-R security monitoring. This is an extension to wayside monitoring services. Tracks suspicious messages and sessions in monitored traffic and send alerts in real time.
Banedanmark Selects Comtest Wireless to Provide Railway Diagnostic and Monitoring Tool
A key deliverable for the Banedanmark Signalling Programme is the replacement of all signalling on the Danish railway network with ERTMS. Once fully implemented, Banedanmark expects an 80% decline in signal-related delays on main and regional lines in Denmark.
As part of this programme, Banedanmark issued a tender in 2018 for the provision of a ‘Railway Diagnosis and Monitoring Tool’.
In January 2019, the contract was awarded to Comtest Wireless because they offered “the best relation between price and quality”.
