The Signalling programme - Radio based train signalling

The Signalling programme - Radio based train signalling
At this afternoon event hosted by IDA Tele and IDA Rail we'll dive into GSM-R and ETCS, the telecommunication technology behind the signal program - Denmarks largest railway infrastructure project to date.

Get a technical introduction to GSM-R and ETCS and how it works together with other parts of the signalling system. How the wireless systems and technologies have evolved from standardization to implementation.

Learn how BaneDanmarks Joint Test Lab is instrumental in combining systems from several different suppliers, accommodating tester and IT experts from 16 different countries and running 5 different tests at the same time. For this setup to work, you need to have processes and policies that can handle this, or else chaos will happen fast.
