UHF data radio products available from RF Innovations have been used as part of complete rail corridor wireless communication systems. The data radios provide communications for train control systems and wayside monitoring while wireless or fibre backbones and voice radio are used for other services to complete the package.
The need for data radio systems in rail corridor applications has increased considerably due to the increased number of monitoring systems used to protect rail assets and rolling stock.
Requirements have also increased due to the development of train control systems such as Communications Based Train Control (CBTC) and wireless Positive Train Control (PTC) to manage for economical operations and increased traffic on rail networks.
As train control systems such as CBTC and wireless PTC become more common place the use of in-cab signaling in these systems will increasingly require the wide area coverage and data reliability provided by a licensed UHF data radio network.
