Westermo offers a complete range of industrial wireless data communication solutions for Train to Ground, Wireless Inter-Carriage Link and Passenger Wi-Fi applications. The RT series of WLAN devices are designed to ensure reliable high-speed data communication even in extreme operational environments.
Railway networks across the world are becoming increasingly busy. Real-time data providing information on the position of the train, speed and direction is becoming critical in order to maintain effective and safe traffic flow.
The RT series of wireless communication devices are designed to provide reliable communication between the moving train and the ground control centres along the track. Train to ground communication can of course also be used for other applications, such as value added passenger information and infotainment.
Solutions for interconnecting rail carriages wirelessly remove the need to rebuild train couplers, and enable new values adding solutions for train operators. Wireless connection can be especially useful in refurbishment projects where a wireless connection can result in a more cost-effective solution that can also handle high data rates.
Westermo’s smart Inter Carriage Link solution addresses the technical challenges associated with wireless connections between carriages such as cross connections to adjacent tracks, optimal frequency selection and large scale deployments.
Providing passengers and staff with on-board entertainment and Internet access caters to the evolving need of digital connectivity. In addition, WiFi networks benefit operational and maintenance activities.
Westermo offers robust WLAN solutions to address the needs of high-density networks with multiple users with its 802.11ac Wave2 products.
Wireless access points, clients and bridges. The Westermo RT-series includes RT-220, RT-310, RT-320, RT-370 and RT-610 complemented with the ICL-5 inter-consist antenna.
