New Antenna Solution Enhances Wireless Connectivity on Trains

HUBER+SUHNER has introduced a new antenna solution for wireless offerings on trains to support additional passenger. The new SENCITY Rail Multi is a unique roof-top antenna that meets the special requirements of rail applications and enables a fully connected fleet, leading to improved customer satisfaction for Train Operating Companies (TOC’s).

Designed to improve rail connectivity and drive productivity, the antenna aids the transition to a digital railway, able to deliver connected services to passengers such as Wi-Fi, Real Time Passenger Information, and live seat reservations. It can also benefit Train-to-Ground solutions for rail employees, such as on-board ticketing and remote train control management.

The SENCITY Rail Multi has a special high current protection and operates within a temperature range of -55 to +85°C. In the case of contact with the overhead line in the event of a fault, the high current protection guarantees electrical protection. Designed as a multi-MIMO antenna, it supports the future 5G mobile radio standard, along with all other wireless applications. Equipped with 13 antenna elements, the SENCITY Rail Multi covers a frequency range from 698 MHz to 6 GHz. The compact housing has the same mounting dimensions as conventional existing rooftop antennas, making the upgrade quick and easy.

HUBER+SUHNER will be showcasing the SENCITY Rail Multi antenna among other technology at InnoTrans 2018 event from September 18-21 in Berlin.
