As bandwidth demands on trains continue to increase for data-intensive applications, HUBER+SUHNER, leading manufacturer of components and systems for optical and electrical connectivity, will launch its new 5G-ready antennas for Vehicle-to-Ground communication at Transports Publics Expo 2018, June 12-14 in Paris.
Overcoming connectivity solutions required for Vehicle-to-Ground communication, the new SENCITY® Rail Multi antenna is able to seamlessly provide an all-in-one wireless communication solution for all types of fleet to provide real-time information on-board, while guaranteeing electrical protection against the impact of a contact with the overhead line. The new antenna is designed to accommodate Multi-MIMO 4×4 ground-to-train communication and is the first antenna readily equipped for 5G on trains, with future public network superseding 4G-LTE. It also meets the special requirements of railway applications, including high current and high voltage protection.
“HUBER+SUHNER has the technology and know-how to provide public transport customers with the connectivity solutions they require on their daily commute – from on-board Wi-Fi, re-al-time information display, high rate CCTV video protection, and even inter vehicle communication for customer service improvement,” said Eric Marcilly, Account Manager Railway at HUBER+SUHNER France. “We can supply a full range of connectivity solutions, both fixed and wireless, to speed-up and simplify the installation process, guaranteeing a reliable, fast, and seamless connection for rail customers.”
Also on display at the event, will be the SENCITY® Road Antenna, used for light metro, bus, and tram services. It provides several benefits in one compact and modular housing, is EN45545 compliant, gives high voltage protection, and offers gains from 4 to 7 dBi.
To help tackle low-loss connection speeds, HUBER+SUHNER will display its full range of SPUMA on-board RF cables, which are flexible, halogen free, and are extremely low loss. These cables offer excellent electrical performance, are designed for applications up to 6 GHz, and offer ideal opportunities in applications like railway – while remaining compliant to various standards including Euroclass CPR, EN45545, and UN ECE-R 118.01.
Marcilly added: “The full range of products we are showcasing at Transports Publics Expo are designed specifically for the Transport market, and meet the whole key requirements needed. The last time we attended the show it proved to be extremely constructive for our visibility and networking. We see this as a key exhibition to meet customers involved in development of French transport mobility, and we are excited to be part of this for another year.”
Other technologies at the show include the innovative solution for on-board Fiber Optic Back-bone, the Databus Gigabit ethernet cables and the logistic solution for Kitting/sets.
