Connecting your critical network infrastructure
Mission critical communications are fundamental to the operation of a railway system. Communications systems have stringent requirements for reliability, safety, interoperability with legacy technology, and long-life cycle support. These prerequisites ensure that you can safely run day-to-day operations and successfully manage hundreds of miles of railway track, unmanned territories, and intricate transportation timetables.
From field to back office, modernize your communications infrastructure with packet-based technology that supports a variety of operational technology (OT) applications.

Mission critical communications connect the dots
Without reliable communications, operations come to a halt. Our mission critical communications system, XMC20, sits at the heart of your railway system and connects all common operational applications.
Hitachi Energy's XMC20 supports typical railway applications such as:
Network management system
Passenger information displays
Legacy data interfaces
Extend the operational life of legacy systems
As networks expand and railways integrate new technologies, you will need to consider modernizing your communications network infrastructure while supporting your existing infrastructure. Generally, legacy time-division multiplexing (TDM) has difficulty scaling up, and therefore railways are choosing packet-based solutions to improve business critical communications.
This is where Hitachi Energy’s XMC20 application comes in. Our latest MPLS-TP technology is built to connect the old with the new. It transcends generations of communications applications and has had success with railways worldwide. A central part of your migration strategy depends on you choosing the appropriate communication equipment – choose wisely!
