Comtest Wireless is 4 & 5G ready – are you?
GSM-R is a second-generation telecom system, which is forecast to reach “end of life” around 2030, when manufacturers are currently planning to withdraw their support.
Work is already underway in some markets to move from GSM-R to other telecom standards including FRMCS (the Future Railway Mobile Communication System). FRMCS promises the abilities to: transmit, receive and use higher data speeds and volumes, offer different levels of operational service to users (“network slicing”), and facilitate mass machine communications. Predicted FRMCS network benefits include: offering improved service quality specific to the different needs of users and application types, reliable low latency communications networks needed to support applications such as driverless trains, as well as supporting other IOT (Internet of Things), predictive and smart maintenance requirements.
Comtest Wireless is working with rail operators looking to install and operate rail telecoms networks using 4G & Mission Critical Communications (MCPTT/MCPTX). It also can provide 5G testing capabilities.
Comtest Wireless can supply solutions for test trains and wagons, attended and unattended solutions, as well as standalone and portable kits.
The solutions are all supplied with appropriate training, support and maintenance packages tailored to meet different client operational processes and environments
