How Does CBTC Work? Understanding the Risks and Benefits
Blog Category: Industrial Ethernet

Posted by: Richard Weatherburn on November 23, 2016

Around the world, railway operators are looking for ways to increase train capacity and improve railway infrastructure. Communication-Based Train Control (CBTC) is an essential element in making this happen.

What’s the real story behind CBTC and how does it play out in real-world applications?

Read on to learn more about CBTC, as well as its potential benefits and risks.


Industrial Cable – The Unsung Hero of Railway Communication

The transportation industry has the unique position of directly engaging with its customers (the passengers) and keeping them happy and safe. Any delays or downtime not only lead to lost revenue, but a trickle-down effect of annoyed travellers.

Do you have nightmares about train delays, safety issues or interrupted passenger services? Whether you oversee the overall operations of a railway or you’re in charge of specifying a new or upgraded vehicle or application – the reliability of the railway communication network rests on your shoulders.

No matter your role in building out a proper Ethernet network, it can be easy to fall into the trap of focusing your attention on the “shiny” or more exciting devices, like switches and routers. But, if the last thing that comes to mind is your cabling – you need to reconsider your priorities. Click the “read more” button below to find out why.


3 Benefits Time Sensitive Networking Will Bring to Railway Communication
Blog Category: Industrial Ethernet

Posted by: Richard Weatherburn on April 26, 2017

As demand for mass transit increases in densely populated urban areas, so do passenger demands for more entertainment, on-time delivery and safety. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and impending technologies like Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) are making this possible.

TSN is a novel technology, currently in development at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), that offers an entirely new level of determinism in standard IEEE 802.1 and IEEE 802.3 Ethernet networks. Standardizing Ethernet networks with TSN will deliver an important capability: deterministic, time-critical packet delivery.

It represents the next step in the evolution of dependable and standardized automation technology and is certainly the next step in improving railway communication. Click “Read More” below to learn more.
