5G Rail – Operational efficiency second to none
If you want a seamless, high-speed communications solution for high-speed transport, then Blu Wireless offers the complete product – 5G mmWave for Rail.
The trackside node is qualified for trackside deployment with extended service life and low maintenance. Deployed at 1km intervals this unit provides the bridge between multi-link wireless connections to trains and a trackside fibre network. The compact train-top node is qualified for train-top installation with a separate in-train network processor unit which provides the interface to in-train distribution and delivery systems such as Wi-Fi.
Both units each feature two-sector radios which work together to maintain around 3 Gbps aggregate throughput, continuously and at speed. Operational efficiency is second to none, where resilience, speed and performance is world leading. This complete product is quick to roll-out, readily available and already deployed across one of the world’s busiest railways, South Western Rail (SWR), alongside evo rail, a First Group subsidiary, boosting overall connectivity and experience for all commuters.
