In these uncertain times, we’re offering our community a way to stay connected and share ideas. Every week, we’re creating a virtual space to come together and explore the most important topics in the industry right now.
Every webinar is free to attend via GoToWebinar.
The digitalization of the railway industry requires multiservice backbone networks serving the demand of mission critical applications with higher capacity and more flexible and rapid adjustment to needs of individual services while at the same time maintaining highest possible availability and security. The Future Railway Mobile Communication System (FRMCS) is the future worldwide telecommunication system designed by UIC for the evolution of the railway communication systems worldwide.
FRMCS will be the enabler for Railways digitalization. This will allow for the implementation of many use cases and services, which benefit from the underlined 5G technology features like high throughput, low latency, etc. A flexible, scalable, secure and future ready IP/optical backbone network is fundamental to seamlessly transport those services, and it is one of the first steps for the GSM-R to FRMCS transition.
Railway operators do not need to wait. Implementing a modern backbone now, railways can take advantage of using it not only for GSM-R but as common transport infrastructure for every ICT needs and FRMCS support.
This session will present solutions to meet railways’ networking needs with a future ready backbone network based on the two major technology pillars - IP/MPLS and D-WDM.
All around the world, rail has been instrumental in developing society as we know it. Today, we are facing new challenges driven by new government agendas and shifts in both consumer behaviour and business practice. As we work to rebuild a better, more sustainable world, we explore the crucial role rail will continue to play going forward, and how to deliver connected networks that are better for both people and planet.
Key points: This webinar will explore a range of topics and what they mean for the rail/urban transit industry:
Introduced by Kirsty Dias, Managing Director of PriestmanGoode, Paul Priestman, Chairman & Designer, will present our latest ideas around Future Cities particularly pertaining to rail industry assets and services.
Kirsty and Paul will be joined by a panel of international industry representatives who will discuss their recent experiences and ideas regarding the shift that both businesses and governments may have to embrace to create a future city landscape that is fit for purpose serving passengers, local communities and the planet.
Before the start of the current Covid-19 crisis, the development of new mobility was gaining momentum like never before.
However the Covid-19 crisis threatens to change the way we live and travel long after lockdown restrictions are lifted,
altering travel trends, norms and paradigms potentially forever.
What impact could these changes have on the development of new mobility services & models and critically,
how can the industry adapt and prepare to the new normal?
Our expert panel will each present their thoughts on what the future of new mobility could look like,
and will then have plenty of time to debate, discuss and answer questions from our audience.
Following the Covid-19 crisis, new behaviors will emerge and many people will continue working from home,
creating a very different environment for Rail and Transit.
Operators must consider new partnerships and undertake an organizational-wide digital transformation to outmaneuver uncertainty.
Rail operators will face major challenges to ensure workforce safety and customer confidence.
And operations, sales and distribution will need to become more automated, reducing the number of physical touchpoints and staff in the field.
What are the lessons learned in Asia? How is Europe progressing? And how will North America be impacted?
Nicole Goebel, Accenture Managing Director , will guide us through insights across three continents:
Europe: Henning Radermacher, Principal Director Rail and Transit, Austria, Switzerland and Germany
America: Michael English, Managing Director Rail and Transit, North America
Asia: Claudio Bacalhau, Managing Director Rail and Transit, Asia Pacific
We cautiously looked at the future and 'life after COVID-19'. Hosted by Alex Burrows, Director, Birmingham Centre for Railway Research and Education, we discussed:
Modern railways can transform their operations with new digital technologies. By combining the latest developments in IoT and analytics, railways can benefit from smoother, more efficient operations, better safety performance and improved customer experiences.
This webinar will focus on:
The data analytics platform LeadMind explained through its success cases. Understand how the platform is improving the maintenance and operation performance and its impact to railway companies business results.
Chris Perry, Founder Intelligent Mobility services will be leading this Webinar focusing on the following themes:
Download the recording: The digital transformation of rail maintenance using interconnected traceability. This webinar was conducted in collaboration with GS1 France and SNCF, on the topic of the GS1 Standards and application to Rail.
The webinar was held on 2 April 2020 and led by Diana de Bernardy, Head of Industrial Markets, GS1.
Julio Gomez Pomar, Chairman at the IE Center for Transport Economics & Infrastructure Management will share key lessons learnt from his extensive experience at the very top of public transport in Spain.
Tune in to find out more about the key challenges facing public transport leaders as they look to simultaneously meet rising capacity demands and front up to worldwide mega trends across the sector.
