2:10 PM Understanding the Strategic Implementation and Upgrades to Telecommunications Infrastructure to Support Train Control

The Digital Train Radio System (DTRS) based on GSM-R technology is facing serious obsolescence in the next decade as technology continues to evolve rapidly. It is therefore essential for organisations to understand how to develop a refined strategy for transitioning from existing to new radio technology, and understanding the risks and benefits of operating on such an integrated system.

This session will look at:
  • How future telecommunications upgrades need to be designed to support train control systems and rail operations
  • The key aspects to keep in mind when designing new train control systems and their interfaces with future telecommunications networks
  • How to transition between telecommunication technologies with minimal impact to TCMS operations.
