In the coming years, Railways are set for a technological transformation, harnessing the power of 5G connectivity to enhance sustainability and facilitate energy transition. This shift positions Railways as a viable option for short-haul travel, challenging traditional air travel while accelerating digitization within the industry. 5G will serve as the foundational technology for the new Future Railways Mobile Communications System (FRMCS) and European Traffic Control System (ETCS), enabling real-time communication with high bandwidth and low latency to support critical communication and telemetric functions in Railways.
Beyond FRMCS and ETCS, 5G becomes the linchpin for digitization and multimodal transportation, supporting Operational Technology (OT) and Internet of Things (IoT) use cases. Private networks are established for depots and stations, ensuring seamless connectivity for end-users.
