Huawei Launches FRMCS Solution to Facilitate Digital Transformation of Railway
BERLIN, Sept. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Huawei officially launched the Future Railway Mobile Communication System 
(FRMCS) solution at the InnoTrans 2022 and the 9th Huawei Global Rail Summit in 
Berlin, Germany, where special guests, Wang Guoyu, COO of Huawei Aviation & 
Rail BU, and Li Jie, President of Huawei Enterprise Wireless Domain, spoke 
about its success. This solution is a remarkable achievement for Huawei, as a 
result of its extensive research and experience in ICT deployment within the 
railway industry of over two decades. With a focus on improving safety and 
reliability, Huawei FRMCS expands train-to-ground wireless services from train 
control and dispatch to railway O&M, railway IoT, and more. It empowers 
widespread digital transformation of the rail sector, ensures train operation 
safety, and improves railway operations efficiency.

The demand for smart railways that can carry huge capacity is growing. Huawei 
FRMCS can not only provide the required high reliability and low latency for 
train control and dispatch, but also support new services such as locomotive 
status monitoring, train operation monitoring, and visualized dispatch of O&M 
personnel, improving fault prediction accuracy and O&M efficiency.

The FRMCS solution uses a new technology, 8T8R Smart MIMO, which allows it to 
achieve the same coverage in the 1900 MHz band as that of GSM-R in the 900 MHz 
band when working with high-power devices from Huawei's partners. This slashes 
deployment and maintenance costs of FRMCS on 1900 MHz and simplifies the 
deployment of FRMCS networks. By providing three levels of redundancy, 
including key boards, key network elements, and wireless networks, Huawei FRMCS 
eliminates single-point failures on networks, ensures high reliability of 
devices and networks, and meets the requirements of the European Train Control 
System (ETCS). Its architecture complies with railway industry standards, which 
facilitates the interconnection between wireless networks and railway industry 
applications, as well as the deployment of new services.

Li Jie said: "The railway industry is now in a critical period of digital 
transformation when the requirements for train-to-ground wireless communication 
systems are higher than ever before. Huawei FRMCS can meet these requirements 
by integrating Huawei's 4G and 5G technologies. It can help railway customers 
build high-reliability, high-bandwidth, future-oriented train-to-ground 
wireless broadband networks that are safe, reliable, converged, simplified, and 
capable of long-term evolution."

Huawei will work with industry standards organizations, industry customers, and 
partners to promote the maturing and large-scale commercial rollout of FRMCS, 
and build a wireless digital foundation for smart railways.
