VDS has launched a new train switch suitable for an Ethernet train communication network implementation.
The major part of system integrators and train makers implement their on-board services for trains based on Ethernet technology. The VDS train switch is the active node utilised for the implementation of this kind of networks.
Train switches are layer two-managed switches, specifically designed for network applications in a rolling-stock environment. Their purpose is to enable the implementation of different network topologies on a train.
The train switch is part of a networking devices that VDS implements for a comprehensive answer to the Ethernet train communication network.
