10:00 AM 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
