Optimizing digital rail infrastructure

Innovation and sustainability provide smarter, more efficient, and safer rail networks for the digital era

Revolutionizing rail transport with advanced digital infrastructure

Digitalization improves rail operations, boosting efficiency, safety, and sustainability. By using IoT (Internet of Things) sensors, real-time analytics, and predictive maintenance, rail networks run more reliably, handle higher loads, and reduce downtime. This ensures safe and on-time transport while cutting greenhouse gas emissions by optimizing energy use. T-Systems supports digital rail infrastructure with tailored IT solutions.

Critical rail infrastructure

Maintaining the integrity and security of critical rail infrastructure is paramount for uninterrupted transportation services. T-Systems offers advanced technology consulting services to assess, plan, and implement robust solutions that safeguard critical rail infrastructure against cyber threats and ensure operational reliability.

IT/OT security consulting

IT/OT security consulting involves the critical task of safeguarding enterprise information. To effectively address the unique challenges posed by IT/OT in terms of enterprise security, T-Systems uses comprehensive frameworks like ESARIS (Enterprise Security Architecture Reference for Industrial Systems) to create a security taxonomy that categorizes and organizes security measures, protocols, and policies specific to IT and OT environments, providing a structured approach to identifying vulnerabilities and implementing robust defenses. Our security strategies tailored to the ESARIS framework ensure the integrity, availability, and confidentiality of the IT and OT systems amidst today's evolving cyber threats.

Precise asset positioning in digital infrastructure

In the world of digital rail infrastructure for public transport, “precise asset positioning in depots or on track” signifies a pivotal strategy. It involves the precise placement and management of various rail system components, encompassing trains, locomotives, carriages, signaling equipment, and maintenance vehicles. Leveraging cutting-edge technologies such as Global Positioning System (GPS), Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), and advanced sensors, this approach optimizes rail operations by improving scheduling, enhancing maintenance efficiency, ensuring safety and collision avoidance, and providing real-time asset tracking. By embracing digital technologies, data-driven solutions, and robust communication systems, we are modernizing rail networks and elevating the reliability, safety, and overall efficiency of public transport services.

Customer-specific solutions

Recognizing that each rail operator has unique needs and challenges, T-Systems offers tailor-made, customer-specific solutions. These solutions encompass a wide range of services, from digitalization and automation to passenger experience enhancements, aligning with the specific goals and requirements of each rail operator.
