ABOUT THE WEBINAR:
Several railway operators are on the way to the digitalisation and automation of their railway operations and running special programmes like Smartrail 4.0, Digitale Schiene, DigiRail, etc. This will allow future services to run even more reliably, increase capacity on the existing rail networks, improve safety for employees and optimise system costs. FRMCS – the Future Railway Communication System – plays a central role in this by not only replacing legacy communication system GSM-R, but also allowing the implementation of a broad range of new use cases, such as Automatic Train Operation (ATO), Internet of Things (IoT) and remote operation.
