Consultancy Services for the Railway Industry


BWCS specialises in working with technology companies to maximise their business-to-business operations. We have worked extensively in the rail sector on technology projects and hosted a series of conferences on railway topics.

Consultancy services for rail operators, train companies and regulators

We help rail operators, train companies, industry regulators and governments to make decisions that shape markets. We have a stable base of blue chip clients who rely on our expertise.

Our transport sector clients come to us for advice on how new services can increase efficiency and attract more passengers.

Communications and broadband conferences for the railway industry

We were influential in the first launch of Wi-Fi on trains in the UK. Since 2006 we have led a series of global conferences examining these issues.

We are also working with major players in the industry on projects to upgrade their communications systems.

Our Transport Practice completed projects for the RSSB in the UK designed to generate a better understanding of the future demand for broadband services in the UK rail industry.

Global conferences for the rail sector

BWCS has held several global conferences on the future of technology in the rail sector on topics including:

  • Train communications systems
  • Rail communication regulations and management
  • Integrated CCTV and transport

BWCS conferences are different. We get involved in the subject. We work in the sector. We pick speakers, panel members and attendees who know all there is to know about the subject matter.

The result is that our conferences attract people with real-life experience of the problems facing the railway industry. We don't invite salesmen or suppliers to give generic presentations. We ask operators who have taken the lead with forcing through change in their company to relate how they did it. The plan is to share experiences, not listen to sales pitches.

Attendees call our conferences relaxed yet right on the money, well-organised and highly-enjoyable.

We also make sure all the speakers and attendees meet each other using our speed-networking sections. As a result many deals and lasting friendships have been formed.

The Wi-Fi on Trains Conference: Train Communications Systems 2017

Broadband wireless services have become a vital weapon for train operators in their battle to beat the competition, cut costs and enhance the passenger experience. But keeping up with this fast-moving sector is a problem. Train Communications Systems 2017 is the only conference to focus directly on this niche, but fast-growing area.

This conference has become the vital meeting point for train companies, rail administrators, suppliers and technology specialists all looking to drive this sector forward.

Join the debate, question the train companies that have launched services and find out where they will take them next. Almost every train operator from around the world that has launched a Wi-Fi on Trains service will be present. This is your chance to meet the people who are shaping this market, who are driving it forward and bringing in new services, ideas and technologies.

Held in June in London, the conference attracts train operators and suppliers from all over the world. Those attending will hear directly from train companies that are launching services, adding new cost-cutting solutions and driving up passenger numbers by adding integrated broadband solutions.

As ever, the conference will provide a great networking opportunity and a very limited number of sponsorship positions are still available. For further information on getting involved or to receive a brochure please contact

BWCS The European Market for Train Based Broadband Wireless Services 27 June 2016 Rail operators are not only in competition amongst themselves but much more significantly with other modes of transport. Some countries in Central Europe have experienced severe, even alarming, falls in passenger numbers over the last 30 years and are making sustained efforts to stop the haemorrhage.
