HUBER+SUHNER Showcases Solutions for Reliable Railway Communications at SmartRail USA
HUBER+SUHNER is making a strong case for reliable railway connections at the SmartRail Congress and Expo next month.
With a host of readily available products that have already proved valuable to the global railway market, the company will showcase its latest connectivity solutions designed to meet the challenging demands of today’s changing railway infrastructure.
The contemporary rail market brings with it demands like never before. Growing needs for constant bandwidth and higher speed data transmission rates are coupled with an intense need for systems that function consistently in diverse environments with the capability for future increased levels of capacity.
HUBER+SUHNER North American Railway market manager Mark Anderson explains: "One weak link in the system from the transit passenger interface to the trackside system relaying terabytes of data to the control center can jeopardize an entire system’s performance, erode return on investment and create perpetual maintenance problems."
"Combining the three core technologies of radio frequency, low frequency and fiber optics under one roof, our comprehensive portfolio of radio frequency antennas and cable solutions, railcar and trackside fiber management solutions and databus, power and signal cables and customised assemblies offer system designers the off-the-shelf solutions they need to meet the challenges of tomorrow."
With requirements for onboard infotainment and rail system operation changing so rapidly, designs must be as robust as possible to accommodate future functionality demands, while conserving cost to allow projects to be completed on time and under budget.
Constraints like railcar weight limitations, test certification compatibility and interference of multiple wireless operating systems are common to almost every project.
Earning the respect of almost every railcar and transit system OEM, thanks to its experience and capabilities in providing customised solutions for the railways of the future, HUBER+SUHNER’s connected mobility technology has enabled the rail consumer experience to become as empowered as ever.
Yet it is not only the passenger that seeks and expects data services. Control centres, engineers and critical infrastructure, such as track switches and level crossings, all house their own data demands in order for rail to continue as one of the world’s most efficient modes of transport.
HUBER+SUHNER is well known in the rail industry for its rolling stock products. With a growing number of worldwide success stories under its belt, including recent rail projects in New York, São Paolo, Nanjing, Zurich and the UK, it is firmly becoming noted for its trackside products too, offering a complete range of products and solutions for the future of the modern railway.
Drawing all these innovations together, HUBER+SUHNER will be demonstrating a comprehensive portfolio of products that companies in the rail industry can use to fully equip themselves for today’s and future applications.
Visitors to SmartRail USA can discover more about HUBER+SUHNER’s new range of innovative solutions for the railway market in Charlotte (booth G7) from 28-29 October 2015.
