Railway tracks are at risk of being damaged or blocked – often as the result of bad weather. This can cause accidents with dire repercussions for worker and passenger safety, as well as extended downtime, leading to reduced profitability.

Inmarsat’s Remote Rail Network Monitoring Solution helps you go from reactive to proactive in these situations, allowing you to remotely assess the impact of flooding or debris on your lines in remote locations without cellular or terrestrial connectivity, anywhere in the world.

How the solution works

Utilising our L-band IsatData Pro (IDP) or Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN) connectivity, the solution enables you to remotely monitor conditions at key parts of your railway network.
