The use of IP technology has become the standard, over the last few years, for creating the data communication backbone used by the Train Control Management Systems (TCMS), Passenger Information Systems (PIS) and Infotainment Systems on trains and Trackside cybersecurity. The reliable computing platform, Certified CCTV products and robust Ethernet switches featuring a range of IP networking protocols are being used to build these networks which now are absolutely critical to the operation of the train.
As more and more different types of equipment are connected to these networks the need for more ports and capacity is created on the switches. More equipment also means that more cables need to be installed both power and data. PoE (Power over Ethernet) technology is the ideal solution to this issue where end devices can be powered through the network cable resulting in significant cost and space savings.
eWorld offers a comprehensive range of rail certified embedded computing and communication devices designed for rolling stock and trackside applications designed and supplied by Moxa and Westermo the world leaders in railway data communications. These solutions have been deployed all over the world in major POS (Passenger Oriented Service), passenger Wi-Fi, CCTV, CBTC (Communication-based Train Control), ATO (Automatic Train Operation), wayside DCS, and other railway systems.
Each device meets strict rail standards such as EN50155, EN5021-3-2 and EN50121-4. EN50155 certification assures reliable performance under different power supply conditions, such as voltage variations and power interruptions.
