Communications technology is fundamental to control systems and evolves rapidly. Railways are not the first to implement and should be able to learn the lessons for others who have gone before us, but equally rarely seem to. We need to break the pattern of current technology and delivery solutions by pushing at the door of concepts such as common shared networks, largescale LTE utilisation and standardised mainline and metro communication offerings, with primary aims being quality of service, affordability and “cultural” change keeping pace with our travelling customer’s growing demands.
This webinar event will allow worldwide participation to push for innovative change and build networks and communities through which they nurture and spread ideas and catalyse action.
The webinar live stream is hosted by our broadcast partners IET.TV
