Advanced field communication
In terms of field comms, our CTC system can support multiple communications protocols and methods. These include:
- DataTrain IV
- DataTrain VIII
Crucially, the system's fully future-proofed. This is because it’s designed to accept new methods and protocols (existing and future) with minimal modification.
How it works
RailComm’s controllers are installed within the signaling bungalows at each control point. This establishes the communication between the field and the RailComm servers. The operation’s carried out centrally via an arrangement of DOC servers and workstations (based on your dispatching needs). Thanks to DOC’s architecture, the CTC system can be used in conjunction with other DOC applications for mainline train control, e.g. Track Warrant Control. Importantly, this is without the need to purchase additional infrastructure. RailComm’s CTC system is available on a client-server architecture or hosted as Service-as-a-Software on RailComm’s cloud.
