Westermo to sponsor the 2017 Digital Rail Summit

Westermo is to sponsor the 2017 Digital Rail Summit organised by Rail Media, publisher of Rail Engineer magazine. The event takes place in London on 26th April and aims to address the issue of digitalisation within the rail industry, and to help bring the UK to the forefront of digital development.

The summit will focus on both the 'visible' and the 'invisible' digital railway. Experts in their fields will explain where the industry is at this point, what future developments are planned, when digitalisation will be implemented and how it will affect everyone involved in the railway, from train operators and infrastructure owners to passengers and contractors. Rail industry experts will look at smart ticketing, 5G on trains, improved information systems, the Internet of Things and cyber security.

“The demand on the UK rail network is expected to rise dramatically over the next decade and to address the inevitable capacity constraints the railway must digitalise,” explained Phil Mounter, Westermo Infrastructure Sales Manager. “Digitalisation is also critical for enhancing passenger experience both on the platform and on-board, which is why, as a leading provider of data communications technology for on-board and trackside applications, Westermo is delighted to support the event. We hope it will provide ideas that can be used to help shape the future of the UK rail industry.”
