Railtex: Westermo preview

At Railtex this year, Westermo will be exhibiting a range of rail approved, Network Rail Certified, industrial data communications products such as the Ethernet Extenders, a great problem solver enabling businesses with legacy copper infrastructure to carry large amounts of Ethernet traffic.

For newer infrastructure, where fibre networks are available, the Lynx Industrial Ethernet Switch has one the lowest power consumption and some of the highest MTBF figures in its class and so help to play a small part in the rail industry’s target of reducing its carbon footprint and building a sustainable, easily maintainable railway for the future.

Following Railtex, on Wednesday 12 June, Westermo will once again be holding a Rail Seminar for those interested in the topic of Signalling and Data Communications.

For the third year running, Westermo will be supported by industry leaders as the event moves to the Science Museum and the topic will be The Three Ss – Sustainability, Security and Safety.

Network Rail’s Strategic Business Plan, published in January, identified sustainability as essential in making the business more efficient, protecting the value of its assets and delivering a railway that is fit for future generations.

The aim of Westermo’s Seminar is to provide an understanding and insight into how industry expects achieve these goals whilst maintaining safety standards and ensuring the security of the rail network’s critical data communications infrastructure.
