Backbone Routers

A hierarchical structure with two levels of networks is needed to interconnect vehicles in close or open trains. Train Backbone Routers provide an Ethernet based gateway function as well as a proper redundancy between those network levels. In order to assure such "High Availability", Train Backbone Routers are designed with specific features like hardware by-pass and Active/Passive technology. Standard protocol is used for proper train inauguration procedures.

Base version of Train Backbone Node with active/passive technology to assure high availability. Two hardware by-passes allow electrical continuity in case of fault.

 

Train Switches

Network requirements push continuously for complex data management. Managed Train Switches specifically designed for network applications in rolling-stock environment. Their purpose is to enable the implementation of network topologies in a train considering such unique environment. Particular attention has been put in the implementation of protocols capable of drastically reducing first installations,configuration as well as maintenance phases costs. Moreover such devices allow for a complete automatic reconfiguration during train-sets auto-coupling in absence of double level architecture.
