Secure, Reliable Networking & Communication Solutions 

Seamless Train-to-Ground Communications


In today’s communications-based train control systems, real-time information about speed, direction, distance and other critical information is required for efficient fleet management, track utilization, scheduling and automatic train control. Belden’s full line of wayside signaling solutions ensure reliable signal transmission between the train and wayside equipment, while withstanding the unique and harsh elements of rolling stock environments.

  • Rugged WLAN access points and controllers are easily tailored for specific remote rail communication requirements
  • Low-loss coaxial cables ensure strong signal strength via minimal interference in high-speed wireless deployments
  • Flexible, scalable managed rack-mount & DIN-rail hardened industrial Ethernet switches support increasing network complexity & bandwidth, speed, redundancy & security requirements
  • Multi loose tube single-mode & multimode fiber optic cables in a variety of fiber counts, jackets & armors, as well as splice-on connectors deliver reliable, flexible outside plant applications
  • Full line of industrial Ethernet cables & hardened connectors, cords & patch panels are specifically designed for fast, simple & reliable wayside connections
