Ethernet Backbone for Rail Vehicles
Onboard Ethernet Networks for Rail Vehicles
In this White Paper:
- Addressing rail challenges for operators
- Ethernet-based applications for improved fuel efficiency & safety, increased reliability & shorter platform dwell-times
- Scenario solutions including redundant coupling protocol, Ethernet train backbone network, coach-to-coach coupling & more
- Implementation guidance for IEC 61375
"To allow passengers to access the internet on board and to remotely manage and control increasingly sophisticated trains, the whole on-board network philosophy is changing. The whole train now needs to be connected together as one integrated vehicle. The design is moving from multiple individual communication systems supporting specific data networks to a single integrated network and the technology being used is Ethernet."
