Advances to rail signalling and train control systems are set to make international rail transport more competitive and attractive. But implementing strategies and understanding the benefits of new digital solutions must be addressed before improvements can be realised.
Martin Taranetz, Project Manager for Telecommunication Technology at ?BB-Infrastruktur AG, explains how the Austrian rail infrastructure manager is investigating various scenarios to migrate from GSM-R networks to new Future Railway Mobile Communication System (FRMCS) standards.
As GSM-R approaches obsolescence, the Future Railway Mobile Communication System (FRMCS) has been discussed among railway organisations as its successor. The UIC launched FRMCS as a project in 2014 and, here, colleagues Dan Mandoc (Head of FRMCS) and Jean-Michel Evanghelou (Deputy Director of Rail Systems and Head of Telecom, Signalling…
Carlo de Grandis, Policy Officer of Rail Digitalisation at the European Commission, explains how the Future Railway Mobile Communication System (FRMCS) is hoped to be the successor of GSM-R, but also as a key enabler for rail transport digitalisation.
As Network Rail loses staff to illness and self-isolation during the COVID-19 crisis, a new training centre has been opened to teach both new and returning signallers who will help to keep Britain's railway moving.
This issue includes articles about keeping railways operational during the COVID-19 pandemic, the use of aerial visual and thermal imaging techniques to monitor Britain's rail infrastructure, improving India’s rail network with state-of-the-art technology, an In-Depth Focus on Level Crossing Safety, plus much more.
Denmark's rail infrastructure manager, Banedanmark, has completed the roll-out of ERTMS on the last stretch of the Thybanen line between Thisted and Struer.
As COVID-19 continues to severely impact the UK rail industry, ORR has announced that it will close the signalling market study in order to ease the burden being placed on the industry.

This webinar, in association with Nokia, will help you to understand FRMCS and how it can be the foundation for railway digitalisation.
Network Rail's Southern Region has appealed to former signallers to help the railway during the crisis as they lose staff to self-isolation and sickness.
Network Rail's first digital railway takes major step forward with the announcement of Siemens and Atkins as project partners.
The long-term deployment plan for ETCS (the European Train Control System) is only part of the overall digital railway programme, with the other parts including traffic management, automatic train operation (ATO), telecoms and a Connected Driver Advisory System (C-DAS) to support drivers with the delivery of?operational performance and energy efficiency.
Ian Maxwell, Head of Train Control Systems at the UK’s Office of Rail and Road (ORR), provides an insight into the differences between external and internal cyber incidents, and how Britain’s rail industry must adapt in order to protect itself from both.
Future Railway Mobile Communication System (FRMCS) is the future worldwide telecommunication system designed by the International Union of Railways (UIC), in collaboration with a variety of stakeholders from the rail sector, as not only the successor of GSM-R, but also as a key enabler for rail transport digitalisation.
