At the UITP Global Public Transport Summit 2019, Huawei officially released its Urban Rail Light Cloud, next-generation LTE-R, and 5G Digital Indoor System (DIS) solutions. Under the theme “Cloud-Based Urban Rail, the Art of Mobility”, the company outlined how the innovative ICT solutions will enable an era of fully-connected, digital rail transportation. The solutions deliver cloud-based services, broadband connectivity, and better-connected digital railways to help rail operators build safer, smarter, and more efficient rail transportation systems, continuously improve transportation capacity and drive service innovations.
Urban Rail Light Cloud Solution: Leveraging advanced virtualization technologies, this solution converts computing, storage, network, and security resources from physical devices into virtual resource pools. These resources are then allocated to application systems through virtual hosts, virtual network devices, and virtual security devices. It enables the integration of data center devices, and lowers device procurement and deployment costs. Featuring high adaptability and flexibility, this solution is suitable for rail transportation with low and medium passenger capacity (E.g. light rail, monorail, tram, maglev system, and urban rapid rail). Additionally, it can be applied to one single scenario of urban rail cloud services (ISCS/TIAS, ACC/MLC convergence center, and road network application cloud), and supports smooth expansion to converged clouds and urban rail clouds.
Next-generation LTE-R Solution: Huawei LTE-R Solution has been fully verified by partners and customers, and is being deployed in China. The solution supports 5G-oriented evolution and interconnectivity with GSM-R. Its advanced features include multiple trunking services such as Mission Critical Push-to-Talk (MCPTT) voice, video, and data, and leveraging one LTE-R network to enable train control, train dispatching, passenger information system (PIS), CCTV, and other rail services. Together with 5G, the solution will enable a future of intelligent railways where all things are connected.
5G DIS Solution: Huawei launched 5G LampSite, a leading 5G network solution for smart transportation hubs. As part of the DIS solution, 5G LampSite uses multiple advanced technologies to support both LTE and 5G, and allow easy installation and simplified O&M. It lays the foundation for smart transportation hubs by offering intelligent communications services for a large number of passengers and enabling smooth and efficient passenger flow management, security checks, and ticketing.
