Operations Communication

Railway operations are evolving – for the better. To excel in today’s world, where agility, efficiency, and safety are paramount, rail controllers need to be able to communicate with numerous stakeholders across different networks, such as GSM-R and LTE, and make well-informed decisions effortlessly. This is where Frequentis solutions come in, offering a unified dispatcher interface that unlocks greater flexibility to meet the challenges that railway control centres typically face.

Railways around the world are leaving decentralised ways of working behind, moving toward consolidated control centres rather than relying on individual controllers at local train stations and signal boxes. Traffic management is being introduced and efficient cooperation of all stakeholders is key. Up-to-date operational data supports this collaboration, enabling railway controllers to seamlessly and efficiently manage operational resources, make better informed decisions, and communicate more precisely in every situation.

To achieve the required standardisation and centralisation, railway infrastructure companies must overcome a few common challenges – finding solutions that meet the needs of various current and future roles within the organisation, integrating with existing ecosystems, being ready for future add-ons, and the ability to be implemented with minimal disruption to live systems. With its fixed-terminal system platform, Frequentis can help to overcome these obstacles, migrating toward Future Railway Mobile Communication System, and facilitating any digital radio network for unified communication.

Incident and Crisis Management

Railways are committed to delivering highly reliable, safe and punctual train services. Any deviation caused by an incident presents challenges to regular operations and reacting incorrectly can result in service disruptions. A modern incident management system must mitigate this risk, facilitating prompt service restoration while adhering to relevant rules and regulations. The Incident and Crisis Management (ICM) solution is a combined information, alerting and recording tool for the operational management of incidents and emergencies.

Towards centralised operations

The ongoing shift from decentralised to centralised operations requires a holistic solution tailor-made to the needs of railway operators that connects all relevant stakeholders and streamlines their incident management workflow. Based on a comprehensive product suite, this solution leads the operator through incidents and emergencies, instantly identifying internal and external stakeholders, automating and streamlining the communication process, while also logging every activity to satisfy legal requirements.


Efficient and effective incident handling

The Incident and Crisis Management solution introduces a resolution workflow based on the time, location and classification of the occurrence in order to allow operators in the control centre and staff onsite to efficiently handle planned events, operational and technical incidents, as well as emergency and crisis situations. Supporting centralised and decentralised incident management structures, this solution also ensures safety management system compliant handling, as well as documentation and reporting of incidents. It is the right choice for any railway company looking for a cost-effective tool that can be deployed within a short timeframe.
