Rail connectivity & communication
Rail communication and the provision of high-speed, high-capacity, high-reliability internet connections on rail journeys has become a strategic objective of both governments and rail operators around the world. Providing a reliable broadband Internet connection to a high-speed train has always been a major challenge. Railway passengers are frequently frustrated by the poor connectivity they receive while travelling.
Our E-band mmWave transceivers have been used as key components in these highly successful trials of a data communications link operating between a train and the side of the track, at multi gigabits.
Filtronic supplies device-agnostic mmWave transceivers. We offer high-performance, competitively priced modules that significantly reduce client time to market. Our ultra-high-capacity E-band (71-76 and 81-86 GHz) mmWave modules are designed to deliver cost-effective, carrier-class multi-gigabit connectivity for mobile backhaul networks. Flexible channel widths from 62.5MHz up to 2000MHz can be accommodated, facilitating operation at data rates up to 10Gbps per channel.
