Major UK rail events provide perfect platform to promote resilient and secure networking technology

Continuing its support for digitisation in the rail industry, Westermo will be participating at two major forthcoming events in the UK, promoting its resilient networking technology for both on-board and trackside applications. In September Westermo will attend the Rail Infrastructure Networking event in York, whilst in October the company will be exhibiting at the RVE 2017 show in Derby.

Rail Infrastructure Networking events are held quarterly across the country, bringing railway infrastructure companies together to make new contacts and reinforce existing relationships. The half-day event gives Westermo the opportunity to discuss the need for resilient and secure trackside data communication networks, and to keep up to date with the latest industry news and innovations from a wide range of businesses.

RVE (Rail Vehicles and Enhancements) 2017 is the UK’s only single-theme event aimed at the engineering of rail vehicles for refurbishment, maintenance and enhancements. The show attracts international exhibitors at the cutting edge of technology from throughout the rail industry. Westermo will demonstrate its innovative and robust data communication network solutions for both trackside and on-board rolling stock applications. Westermo rail experts will be available to provide visitors with advice on the design, implementation and operation of resilient networks that are easy to configure, manage and control.

In addition, Phil Mounter, Westermo Infrastructure Sales Manager, will present a paper entitled ‘Building resilient, reliable and secure train networks’ at the parallel conference. The presentation will explain how robust Ethernet switches are being used to support IP-based data communication networks for train control management systems, passenger information systems and infotainment systems on trains. The paper will also suggest that the real challenge is building resilient, reliable and secure networks that are easy to configure, even by non-IT professionals.

“The dynamic RVE event provides the perfect platform for Westermo to demonstrate its data communication networking technology to influential stakeholders from across the rail industry,” said Phil Mounter. “This includes our unique IP-train solution, which provides a resilient network infrastructure to support high-bandwidth on-board applications such as CCTV and multimedia displays, and our comprehensive range of robust Ethernet devices, which are designed to meet the specific tough challenges of rail applications.”

The Rail Infrastructure Networking event takes place on 7th September at the Network Rail Training Centre. For more details, visit RVE 2017 will be held on the 5th October at the Veledrome. Visit for more information.
