Trackside applications consist of many different systems that move trains safely between destinations. These systems must be able to reliably communicate vital information back to the control rooms. Data communications play a critical role in ensuring the safety, reliability and availability of railway operations. The data communications network must be redundant in order for the trains to operate with high availability. Trackside networks run along the railroad tracks for long distances and rarely have a natural return path over which a ring topology can be closed, therefore Horseshoe Topologies are a perfect fit for these applications.
Reducing the risk of unauthorised access to the network, WeConfig enables the simple deployment of system-wide security features, such as firewalls, MAC filters and link alarms. WeConfig also enables manual or periodic backup of all the device configuration files to be easily made and stored.
