The railway infrastructure in most countries was built over a period of decades. The first railway lines in Europe go back to the middle of the 19th century. A small country like Belgium has in the meantime approximately 3,000 km of tracks in operation connecting more than 500 stations.
Needless to say that the communication needs of a modern railway organization are vast. The networks needs to connect the stations, the control centers, trackside equipment, manned and unmanned stations, signal boxes, traction substations, etc. With the increasing degree of train automation, security measures and passenger services, the network becomes even more critical.
To cater for the needs of railway organizations, OTN Systems launched its XTran product line in 2014. With XTran on board, modern railway operators are ready to face the future.
