Digital technologies for rail electrification

Increase availability, performance and efficiency

Digitalization is critical for increasing reliability, flexibility and availability – and for ensuring the cost efficiency of rail solutions. It is the most efficient lever for meeting the continuously increasing requirements on the rail and for making travel easier and more comfortable for passengers. With digital technologies from Siemens, you implement solutions for making mobility more flexible. In doing so, you benefit from independent consulting and from systems which can be easily interconnected – for maximum protection against physical interventions and IT manipulations.

Digital technologies

Value added for you – and your customers

Trains keep moving with our digital technologies for rail electrification. These are innovative solutions to maximize the availability of your systems, ensure cost-efficient operations – and offer your customers advantages such as increased security and a comfortable travel experience.
Increase the guaranteed availability

With our digital solutions for rail electrification, you fully leverage the strengths of railway traffic. You avoid downtimes, ensure the high loading capacity of the electrical system and get fast and precise information about its condition. In case of a fault, you are immediately notified and can exactly localize the source of the error. Moreover, the data from ongoing operations help with risk analysis and predictive maintenance.

Localize damaging incidents, increase the system availability

Benefit from increased performance

Our digital technologies assist you in leveraging the full potential of the digital transformation. In specific cases, undesired peak loads can also be minimized by software applications to avoid an unnecessary upgrade of the infrastructure. Moreover, you get the full transparency of the energy flows as well as the energy consumption of the individual subsystems of your network.

Plan networks, take voltage fluctuations into account

Switch over to efficient operation

You must react as quickly as possible to an unexpected and extraordinary situation during operations? You want to be able to implement exception handling despite a shortage of operating personnel? You are under time pressure and must clear a disturbance? Digital technologies from Siemens enable you to get a grip on your rail electrification. You get transparent and situation-based information at any time.

Power control system for the rail infrastructure

Seamless security guaranteed

IT security with the digital railway

Railways are and stay the safest means of transportation. Through digitalization, they can increase this lead and break new ground to fully leverage the competitive advantages of rail transportation.

But digitalization increasingly come with the need of IT security. Solutions that protect systems against physical interventions and IT manipulations. Siemens Mobility Services offers you a comprehensive concept for IT security – from risk analysis to continuous monitoring and IT security training.

Your advantage: Our IT security concept can be used in a modular manner. First of all, you can professionally assess your status and detect „open doors“ before undesired cyber visitors do. If desired, we harden your system, eliminate weaknesses and incorporate security technologies. Events which are relevant for IT security are detected during ongoing operations and indicated by special software solutions. Of course, we offer training on topics such as personnel, processes and technologies. The Siemens Rail Academy is an experienced partner to assist you.
