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.

The WiFi on Trains Conference - Train Communications Systems 2015 - 10-11 June.
Train Communications Systems 2013.
The European Market for Train-Based Wireless Broadband Services 2012.
Train Communications Systems 2012.

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 a 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 2020

BWCS’ annual Wi-Fi on Trains Conference – Train Communications Systems 2020 will focus directly on the problems of putting Wi-Fi onto trains.

You will hear frank accounts from the train operating companies currently involved in this battle, from those trialling new trackside solutions, squeezing better connections from mobile systems, as well as those launching new innovative broadband wireless services on board their trains as they struggle to cut costs, beat the competition and enhance the passenger experience.

There is no doubt that broadband wireless services have become a vital weapon for train operators, but keeping up with this fast-moving sector is a problem.

TCS 2020 is the best place to keep abreast of the latest developments in this niche, but fast-growing sector.

This Conference has become a vital meeting point for train companies, rail administrators, suppliers and technology specialists all looking to drive this sector forward. Can you afford to miss out?

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.

Please be advised that places are extremely limited and are selling out fast. To reserve your place now, please use the online order form or the Enquiry Form on this page.

Held in London on 10 and 11 June 2020, in central 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.

BWCS has worked with all the major players in this new market to make Train Communications Systems 2020 a success. Over two days, a combination of interactive workshops, panel sessions, presentations and networking sessions will explore the commercial and technical issues arising from the deployment of these services around the region.

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 please fill in the Enquiry Form.
