Managing Network Devices in Wayside Rail Applications via Cellular Broadband

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

The task of managing network devices in wayside rail applications presents a unique challenge for those responsible for keeping rail networks up and running. For one thing, the remote nature of wayside rail applications makes out-of-band communication difficult, and for another, when a network element in a wayside monitoring station malfunctions, rail traffic comes to a halt. One solution to this conundrum is to use 3G/4G modem communication to manage wayside network devices via cellular broadband.
