Moxa Live Webinar: Modernizing Old Rolling Stock Systems Made Easy

Brea, California, October. 07, 2015—Moxa Inc., a global leader in smart rail networking technology, will host a webinar on October 8, at 10:30 to 11:30 CEST, to address these key issues facing railway operators:

•    What are the weak points of onboard networking and communication systems in old rolling stock, and what are the main challenges of upgrading these old systems?
•    Compare the current technologies available for upgrading old rolling stock systems
•    What is the total cost of ownership of these technologies?
•    How can systems integrators leverage new communication technologies to create new onboard applications and improve existing applications?

As rail networks continue to grow worldwide, demand for smart railway technology is increasing at more than 25% per year. The smart railway technology market is expected to be worth almost $40 billion by 2018. As the industry gears up to meet this demand, rail operators are focusing on three key goals: improving passenger satisfaction, enhancing operational efficiency, and reducing carbon dioxide emissions. Train operating companies face tough choices as they upgrade older rolling stock to achieve these goals. Refurbishing older trains is challenging for several reasons, including limited space, limited communications bandwidth, and limited budgets.

In this webinar, Moxa will show you how to use new technology to get the most out of your old rolling stock. A key question is how to choose the right network backbone for a new train-wide IP network—options include Ethernet, VDSL, 2-wire Ethernet, and power line communications. Budget control is also a key responsibility for managers, so the webinar will give you an analysis from the total cost of ownership perspective to guide your decision-making. Upgrading existing mid-life trains can hugely expand the potential of your onboard systems—use this webinar to explore the newest technologies and get expert answers to your questions.
