This white paper describes:
Three challenges for rail operators and how they can be overcome through the use of Hirschmann products
Ethernet based applications improve fuel efficiency, increase reliability and lead to shorter dwell times at platforms, reduced headway between trains and fewer on board staff as well as improved security
Example solutions for each of the following with illustrations:
- Redundant Coupling Protocol (RCP)
- Ethernet Train Backbone Network (ETBN)
- Coach-to-Coach Coupling (C2C)
- Train Communications Network (TCN)

You'll be on your way to understanding how to overcome the challenges of installing an Ethernet backbone on board a rail vehicle!
From the white paper:
"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."
