Italian telecommunications company Comtest Wireless will develop a new line of unattended active testing solutions, which can be easily installed on test or passenger trains.

Comtest Wireless has received enquiries to organisations that wish to test European Rail Traffic Management Systems (ERTMS) and Global Systems for Mobile Communications in Railway (GSM-R) networks using compact unattended devices.

In response, Comtest Wireless has aimed to expand its NetProbe product portfolio with new portable equipment allowing automatic data collection from GSM-R and ETCS equipment. With the technology, operators will be able to evaluate networks for voice and data quality by establishing and running tests automatically.

NetProbe solutions will be available as carry-on trolleys and backpacks, which can be utilised on passenger trains, board test trains, or secured tracksides.

"These new NetProbe solutions will allow engineers to automatically test any type of cab radio or mobile device."

Comtest Wireless’ sales manager Carlo Ughetti said: "These new NetProbe solutions will provide engineers with the ability to test any type of cab radio or mobile device using carry-on equipment, which is easy to set up and operate automatically.

"The solutions will also be able to integrate with the NetAnalyser state-of-the-art software, to provide a rich and powerful data analytics experience."
