The summer months have been extremely busy for URGROUP, with the company developing a comprehensive 5G strategy for rolling stock, maintenance depots and freight stations.
URGROUP’s experience in providing digital enhancements to rolling stock shows that the Off-Train Mobile Communication Gateway (MCG) is typically administered by the on-board Wifi provider. This can create challenges in obtaining an adequate level of support to gain access to the MCG. Also, since Wifi is available to the general public, security levels may not be robust enough, especially for process-critical applications.
URGROUP can help system providers take control of their MCG needs by providing a wide range of 4G & 5G RAIL CERTIFIED cellular routers. They are ideal for systems such as CDAS, Pantograph Monitoring, Remote Condition Monitoring and many other applications.
Thanks to its strategic partners Digi International, Sierra Wireless and Net Module, URGROUP is able to deliver an entire ecosystem of sensor-to-cloud solutions with managed connectivity and best-in-class router solutions.
Regarding maintenance depots and freight warehouses, URGROUP was inspired by the Rail Forum DB Cargo Digitalization Challenge 2021 to find a solution to address the inadequate cellular performance of the Freight Yard. The company agreed to an exciting partnership with Nokia recently to offer private, high-performance and secure 5G cellular networks and enterprise solutions that address connectivity issues affecting the efficiency of operations at these sites.
