Take control of all your network assets and resources to drive transformation and efficient operations
Achieving operational efficiency with complex networks that span multiple generations of technology is a difficult task.
Railway networks are part of critical national infrastructure and subject to stringent safety and performance requirements. Communications is essential, spanning signaling, remote monitoring sensors, trackside, and cab connectivity and more.
Supporting the real-time picture of your network you need to ensure safe operations, while transitioning to new technologies, demands accurate network planning and documentation – a comprehensive inventory solution that can extend to all network domains and grow with your networks.
VC4-IMS provides a complete solution, supporting your critical communications infrastructure, from signaling to traffic management and communication-based train control – regardless of the infrastructure and assets involved.
Ready for the next generation of OTN / WDM, as well as MPLS, FRMCS and ERTMS, VC4-IMS provides a rich, user-friendly interface, backed by APIs for integration with external systems and all legacy networks and infrastructure.
It gives you a consolidated view of all your assets, enabling you to easily extend your network and built new connections, activate new services and manage your infrastructure – from a single interface, that’s designed to boost efficiency and reduce time to service.
