Enabling safe, on-time and connected journey with Nokia:

Today’s urban/metro railway operators are in the spotlight as governments look to reduce urban congestion, lower carbon emissions and increase the numbers of passengers served. Getting passengers to choose rail is about better in-station and on-board experiences, ensuring efficient on-time operations and 24/7 safety and security.

Mission-critical broadband connectivity is the foundation for digitally transforming today’s railways. The traditional Wi-Fi networks that most urban and metro rail operators rely on today weren’t built for the demands of mission- critical rail. Simply put, Wi-Fi is not designed to support high speed mobility. Performance and quality of service cannot be guaranteed, and the technology is susceptible to security compromises.

Nokia Train-to-Ground solution:

The Nokia Train-to-Ground solution supports multi-path wireless concurrent access backhaul and can be flexibly deployed over wireless networks such as private LTE, existing Wi-Fi networks or a hybrid network setup. Powered by a unique multipath switching algorithm developed by Bell Labs, the solution addresses the need for 100 percent network availability to reliably support highly automated rail operations. Urban/metro rail customers benefit from seamless network coverage, assured bandwidth through capacity aggregation, guaranteed QoS using LTE prioritization mechanisms, and end-to-end security

Professional services expertise:

Having successfully deployed over hundred and twenty railways networks across the globe, Nokia offers a full range of professional services to help urban and metro rail operators maximize operational value from their Train to- Ground investments. Our digital delivery model speeds up time to market while our systems integration experts simplify and de-risk new technology introduction into existing brownfield railway environments.

A clear path to tomorrow’s 5G networks:

Nokia has designed all its LTE based train communications solutions with an eye on the future. This includes the evolution from LTE to 5G in the coming years, ushering in a new era of automated rail operations and innovative applications.
