Intelligent automation solutions are needed for rail and tranpsportation systems. To manage rail networks there have been many modern upgrades to railway networks.

A Paqworks Solution

In order to effectively manage train scheduling and passenger movement, railway system communications networks must be able to transmit current information of the departure and arrival time of each train, and constantly update the central database’s ticket sales information. The major problems encountered are how to overcome interference caused by both manmade and natural problems, and the maintenance effort needed to manage a distributed system that extends over a distance of hundreds of miles. What is needed is a reliable and well-managed communications network that guarantees no data loss, and ensures that the system will keep running without interruption.
