Ethernet Networks for Rail Vehicles

Ethernet Networks for Rail VehiclesMeeting the bandwidth demands of onboard applications

The on-train network philosophy is changing. The whole train now needs to be considered as one integrated network. This concept is at the core at the new series of IEC standards; IEC EN 61375 "Train Communication Network (TCN)" and IEC EN 62580 "Onboard Multimedia and Telematic Subsystems for Railways." As a market leading supplier of onboard Ethernet systems, Belden is a key member of the IEC working groups writing these standards.
