Operational communication solutions that enhance safety
he FTS 3020 Fixed Terminal System consists of modules certified for use in safety-critical applications and has a proven track record in the field. It primarily focuses on interfacing with GSM-R mobile networks, but it also provides a migration path for the integration of existing analogue infrastructures into a unified communication solution.
The solution can vary in size from a few controller positions managing a single railway line up to a countrywide network with many local railway stations and large command and control centres.
Its hybrid architecture allows flexible interfacing to existing communication and network infrastructures, as well as to IP-based information systems like GSM-R, intelligent network servers, train location systems and SMS centres. This flexibility lets Frequentis help you protect your existing investments, migrate to state-of-the-art technologies like VoIP, and develop new, advanced rail services.
Central Switch The core component of the FTS 3020 solution is the duplicated central switch, which is based on a safety-grade hybrid IP/TDM platform. This technology concept ensures non-blocking operation, as well as highly reliable communication and data links.
Management Suite The operation and maintenance of safety-related systems and infrastructure requires access to efficient and powerful management tools. The management suite offers just such a toolset for configuring the FTS 3020 solution and for status and alarm management.
Its core principles are:
The one tool concept
For efficient configuration of infrastructural elements and operational data
Ease of use
Achieved through standardised GUI elements, configuration wizards, validation checks and context-sensitive help functions
Users can return the system to a previous configuration
Alarm and status information are SNMP-based and can be displayed in the management suite or in an umbrella management system
Allows access to the FTS 3020 system from several locations within the organisation
The FTS 3020 solution offers various features which are united in serving one goal: improving the efficiency of everyday processes to ensure the best use of human and technical resources.
