Inmarsat’s Rail Telemetry and Communications Solution enables the real-time transfer of telemetry data from locomotives to the control centre, as well as the ability to extend voice coverage for drivers and staff beyond the range of your existing radio networks.

Utilising our satellite enabled Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN), the solution provides highly reliable connectivity across the network, covering white spots in terrestrial coverage as well as providing a back-up if existing networks fail. This ensures telemetry data such as location, speed, heading and engine diagnostics is always available to the control centre operator.

 

How we can help

iconlist_shield_plus
Enhanced Safety Standards
By understanding where your rolling stock and maintenance vehicles are you can reduce the likelihood of accidents or congestion.
iconlist_list
Achieve regulatory compliance
Rail networks are increasingly subject to regulation governing safety levels and levels of operation and asset visibility.

Increase network capacity
With full visibility of your assets’ location you can safely orchestrate more rolling stock on your track, leading to increased efficiency and profits.

How the solution works

The solution utilises low form factor terminals like the Explorer 323, which are perfect for mounting on a locomotive. This is combined with the PRISM Push-to-Talk (PTT) radio communications system that links to the terminal to provide voice communication.

PRISM PTT is a smart system that is fully integratable with existing radio solutions, extending coverage beyond the line of sight and able to choose the most cost-effective connectivity channel to communicate through.
