Connectivity for Rail Operations

A reliable transportation system is in high demand as our world continues to evolve through digital transformation. That’s why it’s critical for cargo and freight trains to have access to a dependable connectivity network that moves wherever they travel.

Intelsat’s global mobile satellite communications services offer robust, high-throughput connectivity that rail companies worldwide can rely on. Enabling advanced predictive maintenance, fleet and route optimization and autonomous vehicle operation, these solutions allow rail companies to operate safely and more efficiently.

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 realize efficiencies.

Rail operations worldwide are discovering innovative ways to optimize their operations in remote locations or anywhere another network is unavailable.
