Systems

We design advanced signal, SCADA and communications solutions, including complex systems integration from wayside systems to control office.

Today’s passenger and freight railways incorporate systems that have generally been introduced over time and involve a patchwork of subsystems and interfaces. In the effort to increase capacity and throughput, it is a major challenge for these railways to renew and replace their legacy systems in an efficient manner without disrupting regular service operations.

Our systems integration team is focused on this challenge. We bring years of experience with both the old and the new technologies to assist our clients and project partners migrate to the most advanced systems and methods.
