Today’s railways require customised communications programmes that go beyond voice to provide location tracking, data transmission and integration between on-board systems and control rooms.

Simoco’s radio solutions for the rail industry bring capabilities that enable comprehensive and spectrum efficient coverage across wide operational areas. An open standards based design philosophy means that radio communications can not only perform as part of a unified communications approach but, through DMR technology, can provide the backbone for all data transmission and management. This means that existing infrastructure can often be relied upon to bring the benefits of next generation communications solutions such as M2M technologies.

Train operators benefit from enhanced capability such as using radio to facilitate paperless office environments, where rotas and regulations are available to access on the radio terminal, and location and messaging applications.

Simoco’s field based teams and monitoring and maintenance services, are trusted by rail operators across the world to deliver best in class communications and customer experiences.
