Powering safer and smarter rail transport
Digitalisation supports new forms of interaction with passengers, such as enriching applications with contextual information. For example, knowing a passenger’s geolocation in a station can enable the closest agent to engage in a video interaction and provide assistance. With the ALE Rainbow cloud platform there is no need to develop those services. Rainbow provides a set of APIs that enable quick deployment and easy passenger adoption. It also provides the building blocks for virtual ticketing and Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) deployment.
Increasing safety and security will always be the top priority for railway operators. With ALE Digital Age Networking virtualisation you can deliver 4000 multicast feeds needed for CCTV services without compromising critical operational communications. All access network ports are protected by MACSec and IoT containment security. Your Operation Control Center can benefit from the innovative Dispatch Console and recording applications which ensure critical information is processed immediately to keep passengers and staff safe. In the event of a crisis, the Emergency Notification Server helps quickly manage critical communications with emergency authorities, both inside and outside of your organisation. With Web-RTC and Rainbow Edge, you can expand your control center team remotely, as required, while keeping services and data in your datacenter.
Connecting IoTs and sensors is a step forward in the digitalisation of operations. Processes can be automated with IoT to enable more visibility, related to mechanical defects or incidents, to the maintenance team. With Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS), the team can take necessary actions in a timely manner, which can save money. With a single ALE WAN and WLAN infrastructure including ruggedized switches and Wi-Fi 6, you can reduce your investments and operational cost while delivering rich indoor and outdoor services.
